Chain and Rope Suppliers have gone to great lengths to ensure that we are fully trained and competent in the manufacture sale and supply of load securement lashings in compliance with EN:12195. Recent changes in the EU directives pertaining to load securement have meant that we have had to completely overhaul our approach to load securement. We now manufacture, test and label all our own ratchet straps and cargo lashings. All our tie down chains and ratchet loadbinders are all clearly tagged and in compliance with EN:12195-3 including retaining pins and full traceability. We are also stockists of certified friction rubber matting from Rubbertech which is becoming ever important in load securement. Chain and Rope Suppliers has up skilled its sales team to be trained and certified by the IRU academy (International Road transport Union) in safe loading and cargo securing which gives us the ability to advise you how best to secure your load in compliance with EN:12195. Our sales team is also equipped with a load securing calculator which allows us to input your load data such as trailer floor type, lashing angle, weight, friction etc and determine the correct number and type of lashing for your load.
If you have any questions surrounding load securement and tie down options please don’t hesitate to contact us directly, we will be happy to discuss your options in connection with new policy changes.
