It's impossible to estimate how much damage has been caused by unsecured loads falling from moving vehicles, but the vast majority of that damage could almost certainly have been prevented through the proper use of good-quality load restraint equipment.
We sell a range of different load restraints here at SafetyLiftinGear, but which solution is best suited to your requirements? Allow us to quickly introduce a few of our most popular load securing systems and explain where they might come in handy:
- Our hard-wearing RATCHET STRAPS are our most popular load restraint solution. Consisting of a length of polyester webbing with a sturdy ratchet mechanism, these lashing straps are suitable for securing a wide variety of different loads.
- CAM BUCKLE STRAPS are similar to ratchet lashing straps - they just have a cam buckle instead of a ratchet mechanism. Our cam buckle products cost less than the ratchet straps, and they can sometimes be a better choice if you are transporting fragile / delicate goods.
- LOAD BINDERS are a heavy-duty load restraint system, ideal for transporting large machinery and other heavy items. They use chains rather than polyester webbing to hold goods in place.
- If you're transporting goods using a pick-up truck or similar vehicle, a CARGO BAR can act as a barrier to stop things sliding off the truck's load bed. Our ratcheting cargo bars can be adjusted, allowing them to fit a wide variety of different vehicles.
If you have any questions about our load securing equipment, please don't hesitate to contact the SafetyLiftinGear team. We're always happy to help.
