Our vehicle load restraint range
is a comprehensive range of straps and bars to
secure the load on a vehicle, whether roll pallets
in a box trailer, or general goods or stillages in a
curtain sided lorry.
Ratchet straps are an industry
standard. Our heavy duty ratchet strap comes in 10m
lengths but can be simply cut down in length to suit
any need. When used inside vans or trailers, the
heavy duty ratchet strap can tend to pull the
tracking off the side walls, so we have some medium
and lighter duty versions available. Many
applications use an over centre buckle strap to
secure roll pallets in a van. This allows good
tension to be applied without causing damage from
over tightening the ratchet strap.
Load bars are the other main
alternative for securing roll cages in a lorry.
These can either be rigid solid bars that drop into
cups on the track on the side walls of the lorry, or
can be the sprung bar or spring bar alternatives.
These sprung bars are far more versatile but not as
strong as the fixed load bar. Cargo stays are also
available to secure uneven or unstable loads. These
cargo stays can be either in the horizontal or
vertical plane and be used to secure all sorts of
loads or roll pallets and trolleys.
Of course, all these ratchet
straps and load bars need to fit into track or
tracking on the trailer or van sidewall. There is a
standard track, the 1806 standard single round hole.
These tracks are in 3 metre lengths and the tracking
can either be mild steel zinc plated or stainless
steel. We have listed several other common tracks,
although other tracks are available.
