Corner Protectors / Edge Protectors

Corner Protectors
Plastic Pallet Corner Protectors, also known as vee boards, edge protectors or cargo strap protectors are used in conjunction with ratchet straps to protect the edges of cargo from banding damage and also to protect the strapping from sharp edges which can cause abrasion. Corner Boards and Wear Sleeves can extend the life of a ratchet strap.

GTF® are leading UK suppliers of all types of edge protection. The CP60 and CP800 range are used in applications where it is important to protect the edge of the load, such as Paper and Plasterboard. The CP800 is also used to protect the ratchet tie down straps when carrying freight such as bricks and being 800mm wide spans the width of a Euro pallet.

GTF® stock much longer corner boards that can span more than one pallet width, the heavy duty protectors CP2400 are 2.4m long, they are used on brick and block loads and can span 3 Euro pallets. We also stock 800mm and 1.15m load protectors.

Not only do they protect the strapping from damage and protect the load; but they also help stabilise the load, if used on boxes, oil drums, paper or bricks and are used on flat bed lorries, side curtain trailers or hiab trucks.

Mounty Applicator
We now are also able to provide the Mounty Applicator a device for placing edge protectors whilst standing on the ground which therefore removes the need for working platforms and ladders. It can also be used to move and position the webbing and because this is done from the ground speeds up load times, thus increasing productivity and therefore profit. The Mounty Applicator is sold in two parts, the Mounty Head and the Mounty Pole. Our range of Mounty products include the M-FORK, M-BROOM, M-HEAD, M-HEAD-MR, M-POLE.

New to the range is our Strap Thrower which allows straps to be jettisoned over the load whilst still standing on the ground.

Wear Sleeves
GTF® also manufacture wear sleeves in various widths suitable for all our ratchet straps as an alternative to Corner Protectors. If you are unable to place an edge protector on to a load then may be a wear sleeve is an alternative option. Wear Sleeves are designed to protect Ratchet Straps from abrasion on sharp edges, GTF can supply 60mm, 75mm, 90mm and 120mm wide wear sleeves, bespoke wear sleeves can also be manufactured.
