Webbing straps must be protected when used
on rough or sharp objects. Straps that are cut, worn or otherwise damaged
should not be used.
A strap is only as strong as its weakest
WHAT IS A RATED
- Ratings are generally established and/or
regulated by industry or legislative standards and may vary from
industry to industry.
- All ratings shown in this catalog are based on
the product being new, and used in normal environmental conditions.
Special consideration must be given to item selection when unusual
conditions can be expected. Particular caution should be
exercised to avoid exposing the product to sharp edges or acids.
- Products are subject to age, wear and
deterioration, all of which cause a reduction in the product's
breaking strength capacity. We recommend that all products be
regularly inspected. Any worn, deformed or damaged products
should immediately be removed from service and replaced.
- The component with the lowest breaking strength
capacity in the entire restraint system will probably fail first.
Each component of the entire system plays an important that
tie-downs be attached to components that are of sufficient strength
to property secure the load. For example, if one anchors a
standard web binder assembly with a rated load capacity of
12,000lbs. to a device with a breaking strength capacity of 5,000lbs
then that system will fail at 5,000lbs.
WHAT IS BREAKING STRENGTH
- This is the minimum load a component or assembly
will withstand before failure.
WHAT IS WORKING LOAD LIMIT?
- The Working Load Limit is the maximum load that
may be applied to a component of a cargo securement system during
normal service. For your safety, CTS recommends that "working
load capacity" not exceed one-third (1/3) the component and/or
assembly "breaking strength capacity"
- The Working Load Limit for a tiedown is the
lowest WLL of any of its parts or the WLL of the anchor points it is
attached to, whichever is less. Every device contributes to
the WLL of the securement system.
- For a synthetic webbing tiedown, the WLL is the
working load limit of the tiedown assembly or the anchor point it is
attached to, whichever is less.
- Never exceed the working load limit (WLL) of any
synthetic web tiedown(s). The loading of any synthetic web
tiedown beyond its WLL can result in severe personal injury or
