Why use Cargo Corner Protectors ? When you are using ratchet lashings or any other form of cargo restraint, whether webbing, rope or chain, they need to be pulled extremely tightly over the cargo/load, this can sometimes result in damage, either to the load, if the edges which make contact with the lashing are not very strong, or to webbing itself, if the edges are sharp. Tarpaulins can also be easily torn if used to protect cargo from the elements.
Cargo Corner Protectors Available
Rope Services Direct offers a range of corner protectors which can greatly reduce the risk of damage to both cargo and lashing. These protectors are made from tough plastic materials and add a protective layer between the cargo and the strap/lashing to protect from localised damage. They also help to distribute the pressure/force of the tight lashings over a wider area, offering further protection to the load and cargo strap.
We offer small, medium and large cargo corner protectors in heavy duty plastic to suit a range of cargo types. These protectors can be used with ratchet chain binders too.
If you are using cargo restraints on a regular basis you may want to invest in some of these corner protectors; they provide a cost effective way to protect your lashing equipment and therefore extending its working life. Protecting loads from potential damage can also have many advantages, especially when transporting a valued customer’s cargo.
