Narrowtex lashing and strapping features

Narrowtex manufactures quality lashing and strapping for South African and export markets. Our range includes woven polyester lashing and strapping, composite strapping and bonded strapping. We hold the following accreditations: ISO9001, ISO14001, AAR, DNV.GL and IATF16949



Container Lashing from Narrowtex is manufactured to ensure a safe and secure cargo lashing system. Our range of cargo lashing is marketed under the brand NARROLASH™ and the comprehensive range of products can accommodate various cargo securing systems. Our core range is the Association of American Railroads (AAR) certified.


The Narrowtex range of polyester woven strapping is marketed under the brand NARROSTRAP™ and is the ideal solution for various applications as the woven polyester strapping does not split, is flexible and can be used universally. Combined with buckles, tools and tensioners, Narrostrap provides a reliable assembly solution. The strapping can be tensioned using manual or pneumatic tension tools.


Narrowtex Composite Strapping is manufactured from high tenacity polyester yarns and encased in a high-quality polymer coating. Composite Strapping, also referred to as cord strap or synthetic steel, is an effective alternative to steel strapping, metal banding and plastic strapping. Composite Strapping does not rust and therefore will not damage precious cargo during transit and storage. It is designed to absorb impacts and load shifting during transit and unlike steel strapping will not snap or break.


Bonded strapping, otherwise referred to as hot melt strapping, has many advantages over conventional manually applied products such as steel straps, metal banding, rope, plastic straps and stretch film. Compared to these products bonded strapping is applied in a faster, safer and more cost-effective way. The bonded strapping can be joined by a simple knot or used in combination with buckles, tools and tensioners, providing the most dependable joining systems. It can be tensioned using manual or pneumatic tension tools.

One of the reasons for the popularity of the lashing cargo securing solutions from Narrowtex, is the printed and colourised strapping and lashing.
