N5 Container Lashing – perfect for securing containers
Container lashing systems are pre-assembled for immediate use as restraint systems that are easy to handle and fast to secure. The container lashing consists of two 2400 mm long ribbons used in for standard height containers, or 2600 mm long ribbon for a high cube container. These are anchored by hooks sewn into the lashing and are perpendicular to these bands, depending on the required application, two to four in height or flexible sewn-mounted horizontal bands, which are connected by means of the Fortris pressed steel buckles.
Container lashing systems are made from high-tenacity polyester fibres that have a high resilience through their special material properties and thus provide excellent load restraint systems for your cargo. In addition, the textile material prevents damage to sensitive surfaces.
The Polyester material has been proven for decades, has a low stretch, very dimensionally stable and has a high tensile strength. Unlike natural fibers, polyester absorbs little moisture. Polyester is one of the strongest plastic strapping products and is used as an alternative to steel strapping in many industries.
The N5 Lashing can be used for securing overseas containers a long with some of other products which include:
Anti-slip material in the form of anti-slip mats
Lashing straps (ratchet pressure or Ergo long handle)
Edge protector (of solid cardboard with a spot load of 600 daN) edge protection should be used in order to prevent a puncture on the load frame.
N5 Container Lashing
Container lashings may be re-usable devices with integrated ratchet tensioner or one-way hardware, available with removable tensioning and lockable devices. The permitted securing load is generally labelled and certified as Lashing Capacity (LC) which should be taken as the Maximum Securing Load. (MSL) There is no rule of thumb available for estimating the MSL due to different base materials and fabrication qualities.
The fastening of web lashings by means of knots reduces their strength considerably and should therefore not be applied. The elastic elongation of web lashings, when loaded to their specific MSL, is generally around 9% of the length and shall not exceed 13% according to European standards. Web lashings should be protected against chafing at sharp corners, against mechanical wear and tear in general and against chemical agents like solvents, acids and others.
