Transport belts, which secure the transported cargo, ensure both its safety and the entire road traffic. For this reason, they must be in a proper technical condition and made of high-quality durable materials. Thanks to this, they can easily meet the requirements of the load and ensure its proper securing - non-durable transport belts could tear at an unexpected moment and create a great risk during transport. High-quality transport belts at attractive prices can be found in the store of a proven manufacturer of accessories for motor vehicles - Kamar.
Kamar's offer includes a large selection of tensioners, belts and conveyor belts, as well as many other accessories for securing cargo, such as: an edge protector bar or protection for ratchet. Attractive and affordable prices are an additional advantage of the company.
The transport belts for the trailer must meet certain specific requirements. When choosing the right belt, you should pay attention first of all to its characteristic features, such as strength, thickness, length and width. The width of the belt has a great influence on strength - the wider it is, the more durable. Both banding strength and tensile strength are very important. It is also best if both of these values are equal to the forces acting on the straps during transport. The appropriate length of the belts is also important. It should be able to embrace the entire load and attach the straps to the lashing points or handles, eliminating the possibility of the load being moved, leaving it safely in place. It should be remembered that transport belts can wear out quickly due to many different factors, such as weather conditions or the type of goods transported. For this reason, we should bear in mind the need for their frequent replacement. In addition to the obvious importance of the transport belt, the tensioner also plays an important role. It should have the same parameters and be tightly fitted and properly matched to the belt. The tensioners must also be made of good quality materials to ensure the best possible strength.
Many precautions must be taken when using the transport belts. The belt must not be overloaded above the tensile force specified on the label, as this creates a high risk within the vehicle. When selecting the types of belts and their number, one should take into account the type, shape, dimensions and weight of the transported cargo, as well as how high the friction will be between the belt and the load. When fastening with a belt it is recommended to use at least two straps and four as lashings. It is allowed to use only undamaged belts, without visible defects and knots. When securing loads with sharp and rough edges, appropriate protection should be used and a slash or angle bar should be used. The pretensioners must also not be placed on the edges of the load. When attaching the tape, special care should be taken to ensure that it is not curled or crushed. The transport belts should be cleaned with water only, contact with undesirable chemicals could damage the belt.
Any inadequate securing of the load is a great danger to the health and life of people and animals in the vicinity of the vehicle. Therefore, before use, we should carefully check the tape for visible tears, cuts, seam damage, scratches, cracks, or deformation or corrosion damage.
