Anti Slip Mats

antislip mat

Crafted from durable rubber, these anti-slip mats provide an effective method to increase the friction coefficient beneath your goods, ensuring superior load securement. The friction coefficient, determined by the surface pairing (e.g., wooden pallet and steel truck), influences how smoothly your goods move during transit. By strategically placing rubber mats beneath your cargo, you guarantee a higher friction coefficient, ensuring compliance with the CTU code. 

Temperature resistant – can withstand temperatures between -30°C to 100°C.

Increase the friction anywhere from 0.6µ to 0.9µ.

Yes, the ProPole is versatile and can be customised with different attachments to suit various height-related tasks specific to the trucking industry.
The RatStrap Pro handling tool is designed to safely take a strap over a high load and drop it to the other side while the operator remains on the ground. This tool enhances loading efficiency, safety, and speed.
Ratchet straps are tensioning devices used to secure cargo during transportation. Users can tighten the strap to create tension and secure the load.
Consider factors such as cargo type, load weight, strap material, length, and end fittings.
Ratchet straps can be reused if they are in good condition. Regularly inspect for wear, tears, or damage.
Edge protectors are devices placed on the edges of cargo to prevent damage to both the cargo and the straps. They help distribute pressure and protect against abrasion during transport.
While not necessary for every load, edge protectors are recommended for sharp-edged or delicate cargo to prevent strap damage and ensure load integrity.
Load restraints are critical in ensuring the safe transportation of goods on trucks. They prevent cargo from shifting, falling, or becoming damaged during transit, enhancing overall road safety and protecting both the goods, people, and vehicle.

There are two main load restraint methods: Tie-down restraint – using
lashings to secure the load to the vehicle (relying on friction for most of the
restraint forces), and Direct restraint. More information can be found using the
