International Strap – Attachment point Strap / Lash
International Strap™ – Attachment point Strap / Lash
The International Straps of Grönheit & Weigel allow the retrospective attachment of the attachment points for strapping and lashing.
Saves time and money
Its usage is implemented easily and quickly.
Suitable for the following carriers:
- – Beaded container
For best results, read prior to installation and follow all directions closely.
1. Planning the location.
The International Strap must be secured to the container wall at least 2,5 m before the end of the load. This helps to ensure that load shifting will not pull it away from the wall. If it is attached closer to the end of the load, the International Strap may not function correctly – and its capability to restrain cargo will be reduced or eliminated.
Handles must face toward the end of the load and banding must be positioned tightly against the cargo so that the force of the load will be parallel with the trailer wall – not at an angle. Angular force against the banding reduces the adhesion power of the International Strap and increases the possibility that it may pull away from the wall.
2. Important: Preparing the surface.
The wall space where the International Strap is to be located must be clean and dry.
Wipe all loose dirt and dust from the application area with a dry cloth.
3. Attaching the banding.
Flexible banding and buckles must be attached to each International Strap handle prior to applying the straps to the container wall.
Plastic Strapping can be used – and these are available at Grönheit & Weigel GmbH.
The use of hooks, rope or any other material that does not allow the entire International Strap to adhere to the wall is discouraged. Such materials may reduce the system’s restraining capabilities.
To measure the correct banding length, be sure to include the distance from each International Strap to the end of the load, plus the width of the trailer.
Our professional team will advise on all questions.
4. Applying the International Strap to the wall.
To apply the first International Strap, remove the cover from the adhesive backing, position the strap on the wall and press firmly against it with both hands. Repeat this procedure with the second International Strap, making sure it is at the same height and equal distance from the end of the load as the first.
Note: The handles of the International Strap should always point toward the end of the load.
IMPORTANT: Once the International Strap is in place, it should not be moved. Moving it will weaken or break the adhesive’s initial bond and will not allow optimal performance.
5. Using tape, temporarily secure the loose banding so it is out of the way while the remaining cargo is loaded.
6. Securing freight with buckles.
Once cargo has been completely loaded, wrap the flexible banding around the end of the load and use buckles to secure the two ends of the banding together in the center of the load.
7. International Strap removal.
To remove the International Strap, simply cut the banding and, using the handle, pull the International Strap down and to the rear. It should peel completely off the wall.
