Q: Please discuss 5′ x 5′ strapping vs. 3′ x 3′ strapping and the proper uses of each?
A: The question you ask refers to the width in the cross grids of strapping. 5′ x 5′ strapping is used on symmetrically even safety covers with reasonably smaller square footages which do not entail too many custom dimensions. This helps keep the cost of safety cover material lower. Once an application grows in square footage and takes on more complicated design, it is necessary to produce the safety cover in a tighter grid, 3′ x 3′ sections, to ensure a proper fit.
