The safety net is usually placed over the goods to be transported and then tightened with lashing straps on all sides of the load. With the so-called tie-down lashing, the goods to be transported are lashed tightly to the vehicle floor, thus preventing the load from slipping. The friction should be additionally increased by means of anti-slip mats to enable the goods to be secured with a force fit on the loading area.
With the help of lashing straps, an optimal contact pressure can be created. The forces generated during pressing are referred to as pre-tensioning forces – they are the force that acts on the load via the lashing equipment. The pre-tensioning force and the lashing angle (angle between the loading surface and the lashing equipment) play an important role when lashing down and should always be taken into account.
With the right cargo securing net and the appropriate fixing points on the vehicle, practically any load can be transported well and, above all, safely. No slipping and wandering of the load, no danger of the vehicle being subjected to extraordinarily high loads in borderline situations and no loads falling around to impair the driving behaviour – with the load and the driver coming to harm. Drive safely in road traffic and prevent accidents. Because proper cargo securing avoids high fines, the number of complaints and dissatisfied customers and significantly increases safety on our roads.
