ABOUT THIS CATEGORY
Load restraints are used to securely fasten a load on a mode of transport to protect the integrity of the load itself and to safeguard the general road user population. A common method of restraining loads is by using tie-down restraints that are tensioned lengths of straps or lashings that clamps a cargo against the flatbed or cargo bed. Additionally, lashings should be tensioned at 20 percent of the load's weight to avoid the cargo from jumping or getting loose. Several options are available in hooking up and tensioning these restraints. Lashing straps have easy-to-use gator clips and are used in light-duty applications while ratchet straps have ratcheting mechanisms to lock and tension the strap. Ratchet straps typically have higher working load limits ideal for heavy loads. AIMS Industrial offers a wide selection of quality load restraints for your cargo transport needs.
