Cargo tie down straps offer a safe and secure way of tying down loads, and with multiple end fittings and terminations, they are able to work with an almost limitless amount of shapes and sizes.
Given this flexible and adaptable nature, below we have examined why these straps are perfect for helping to prevent cargo securing violations.
What do the laws say on tying down loads?
There are strict rules and regulations in place when it comes to the transportation of goods and the securing of cargo. In fact, it is something that involves the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency, Traffic Commissioners for Great Britain, the Freight Transports Association and the Road Haulage Association, so it’s safe to say, you have a lot of people that you need to please!
This, and given the fact that failing to secure loads properly is often the most common cause of violations when it comes to fleet vehicles, with it accounting for over 83% of violations in the US in 2013, it’s important that this is taken seriously.
Here’s some cargo straps in action!
And, also in 2013 but this time in the UK, there were 22,000 road impact incidents due to objects or pieces falling from vehicles, and these are obviously incidents that you want to avoid.
Why our cargo tie down straps are perfect
With so many things to think about when it comes to the transport industry, we know that you need easy solutions that reduce wastage and time, while making the process as efficient as possible. This is why our straps are the perfect answer.
As we’ve already mentioned, they can be combined with a number of end terminations or fittings, giving you a multitude of options when it comes to the way in which you want to tie a load down.
Alongside this, the strap itself also has many options, meaning you can choose from a range of colours and materials to best suit your own operation. Whether you’re after rope or chain, and hooks or buckles, there are many solutions available.
Perhaps one of the biggest benefits to our products which can go a long way in helping you to avoid any securing violations is that they can be bespoke. This means that we can manufacture an item for you that fits your specifications exactly, making the securing process much easier for you.
Finally, all of our straps are made from high strength polyester, meaning you won’t have to worry about any breakages during a load moving. This material also has the added advantage of being highly water resistant, as well as being extremely durable and maintaining low stretch properties. This is on top of the fact that they are also resistant to UV, various chemicals, oils, moulds and mildews!
