Our HLash cargo securement products particularly for your specific application

When calculating the most suitable restraint system for a loading situation, the prevailing assumption is that all container eyelets used by the cargo securement system carry the maximum load.  Tests with our 0µ sled have shown that the use of uniform webbings leads to overloading of a few container eyelets, while other container eyelets have shown to absorb significantly less force.

With our CRS Vario and CRS Systems, for the first time all webbings can absorb the acting forces evenly. Shorter webbings transfer excessive forces actively to longer webbings. All webbings are guided to the load limits simultaneously. As a result, our CRS Vario and CRS Systems can be loaded up to 60 % higher than conventional systems, using the same amount of material.

This reflects the many years of experience and the worldwide unique testing options we have available. All results from the test series have been incorporated into the development of our CRS Vario and CRS systems:

  • container tipping test
  • rail track
  • 0µ sled

For more flexibility and to meet the different loading situations of our customers we offer our systems as CRS Vario and CRS for recurring shipments. Both CRS Vario and CRS impress with their fast installation times. Check them out.

For transports to the USA our RHS 10.4v1+ Rail Edition is available; AAR approved (non-hazmat) since 2019.

The basis of our cargo securing systems is our Container Lashing CL for light cargo ≤ 8 t. Since its introduction in 2001, it remains the fastest solution for “lightweights”.

  4. Presentation of a detailed report, including a well-arranged set of loading instructions.
  5. Offer to train your employees in the handling of our specific cargo securing solution. Training can take place in German, English or Spanish.

Loading Instructions

HLash Verladeanweisung

At the end of our HLash cargo securement consultation we calculate the exact configuration of the proposed cargo restraint system.

Attached to our detailed report, subject to all current regulations, you will receive a clearly structured loading instruction.

The loading instruction clearly states where to place the unit loads. It also proposes additional securing equipment that should be used to obtain i.a. adequate form lock.

Certifications

Zertifikate Ladungssicherung

When submitting our container restraint systems to a recognized certification process, our main emphasis is on their applicability in combination with your goods.

A tailor-made HLash cargo securing concept always takes characteristics and specifications of the packaging into account. During certifications we therefore preferably test our cargo restraint systems with proper goods from customers (or suitable substitute materials).

We collaborate with recognized, independent testing institutes for all of our certification processes.

Testing Facility

We run trials under realistic conditions on our restraint systems as well as fully secured shipments.

Main testing stations at our disposal are:

  • road braking tests up to 0.8g towards container doors
  • rail impact tests based on UIC and AAR specifications
  • 0µ-cargo sled to test restraint systems under stable conditions
  • container tipping test area
  • fully secured container handling simulation with a reach stacker
  • mobile horizontale impact test stand for unit loads
  • mobile tilt-angle test stand for unit loads, DIN EN 12195

During the driving tests on truck and rail as well as during tipping, we record live all data necessary for the development and evaluation of a cargo securing system: g-values, elongation values, loads on the webbing or the lashing eyelets, shifting of the goods, and much more.

The testing facility is also used to prepare upcoming certifications and to test third-party container shipments. This option is open to all our customers giving us the chance to continuously enhance our methods and devices. We are looking forward to testing your ideas of cargo securing!
