More information on our custom ratchet straps
Securing your goods and loads has never been so simple with our range of Ratchet tie down straps. They operate in exactly the same way as our range of other ratchet straps and cargo restraint. The key difference being that these are bespoke and custom made.
The industries which use this type of equipment has increased much in recent years. The nature of the applications and operations that they are used for has changed too. For this reason, the reasons that they are used, and the loads or objects that they are working with, can vary greatly. And this equipment is rarely a “one-size-fits-all”. That’s why having custom-made equipment is the answer.
Our custom ratchet straps are available in any length, thanks to our ability to custom cut and stitch them at our premises. We use industrial sewing machines and expert, skilled staff for this process. We have been manufacturing and supplying custom ratchet straps for many years. With all our equipment not only being hand-made on site, but also being tested for strength and safety too.
With a variety of end fittings to choose from, you can be sure to get the perfect ratchet tie down straps to suit your purpose. We stock a range of hooks including; Chassis Hook, Delta Link, Rave Hook and the Twisted Safety Hook.
As well as being available in a variety of lengths, we can also supply this equipment in a variety of widths and colours too. They are constructed from a strong polyester material. All are manufactured in accordance with the relevant laws and regulations, which are: DIN 60060 and EN 12195/2.
More information on our polyester material
Polyester is a man-made, synthetic material which is the most commonly used type of material for ratchet straps. Here we have explained the key benefits of this material, and why you’ll want to use it for your operation!
Firstly, and perhaps most importantly, it is an extremely strong material. While it isn’t a substitute for metal for some operations, where appropriate it provides more than enough strength. And it offers many benefits that metals can’t.
It’s an incredibly resistant material too, having a good level of resistance against chemicals, stretching shrinking, wrinkles, mildew, abrasion and moisture. The last two are particularly important, given the nature of the operations in which they are utilized. Alsodue to the fact that custom ratchet straps are often used outdoors frequently.
Finally, it is a material that easily retains its shape, and is also quick drying.
We also supply wear sleeves which can be fitted to your custom ratchet straps. Although polyester is already an extremely strong and highly resistant material, it is sometimes recommended to consider extra protection for those particularly abrasive operations.
These wear sleeves can also offer extra protection to the load itself, ensuring that it doesn’t become damaged or scratched through abrasion during an operation.
On top of this, as previously mentioned, we have a range of fittings that can be used with your custom ratchet strap in order to complete it and have it ready for use for a number of operations. You can find our contact details below, where we can discuss this in greater detail.
