Ratcheting straps are specifically designed to hold loads in place on trucks, trailers, rail cars, ships and other freight carriers. Heavy duty ratchet straps work effectively by ratcheting down tightly over a load providing not only stability, but security as well. When choosing a ratchet strap make sure it is made from a weather resistant material. Most cargo ratchet straps are made of Polyester to minimize weathering, damage and corrosion. Polyester is a high strength, low cost material that resists abrasion and is the right choice of webbing when producing ratchet straps. Ratchet straps also feature a variety of hardware including; flat hooks
, snap hooks
, wire hooks
, grab hooks
that aid in securing the your cargo. Using ratchet straps is easy.
All ratchet straps are labeled with their working load limit to meet CVSA guidelines, DOT regulations, WSTDA limits, CHP and North American Cargo Securement standards. Working Load Limit is defined as the maximum load a component or assembly should be subjected to during routine use. Cargo Equipment Corp strongly recommends the “working load limit” does not exceed 1/3 of the component and/or assembly’s breaking strength. Working condition:
You should never use a tie down or ratchet strap if it shows excessive abrasive wear, broken or worn stitching, holes, tears, cuts, snags, chemical burns, melted webbing or any hardware that shows a defect. You should inspect your ratchet straps before each use and replace any strap assembly or other tie down that is not in excellent working condition. Custom Stenciling:
