Tie-down, Load Security

Practical Examples - Beverage Transport

The requirements for the transportation of beverages are demanding. There are various size containers for bottles and barrels. Free space to the edges of the loading area must be avoided. If flexible loading of these versions is required, the corresponding equipment must be available. If in doubt, the positive locking must be supplemented by positioning pallets and lashing down.

Vehicles with the body certified to Code XL are capable of absorbing all of the forces via the body. This requires the pallets to be loaded without gaps. Spacer slats are utilised to compensate for any gaps, as are securing systems anchored between the roof and the floor.

Barrels, with and without strapping and drink crates loaded in positive locking can be safely transported without lashing down when using the appropriate equipment.Barrels, with and without strapping and drink crates loaded in positive locking can be safely transported without lashing down when using the appropriate equipment.Transverse beams at the front and rear of the freight secure partial loads against sliding   longitudinally.Reversible spacer slats must be folded down so  that they form a positive fit at the side for the  transportation of well pallets.For partial loads, perforated rails integrated in  the floor and roof provide security of the load to  the rear.
