The ratchet strap is absolutely a piece of extremely effective equipment to support many different weights and cargo sizes when used properly.
However, our specialists have seen many cases that lashing straps damage very quickly and seriously because of misuse. Worse still, it can cause road hazards.
If you're transporting palletised goods, boxes and stillages, you will need at least one strap per row according to the Health & Safety Authority. If you're transporting logs in a truck fitted with a headboard, at least one strap per bay has to be used for the logs up to a maximum length of 3.3 metres with the bark still present. More information can be found in this guideline document (p.13-14).

They should be stored in a weatherproof container to avoid moisture, direct sunlight, friction and heat when you're not using them. It is a good practice to roll the straps before storing them to prevent multiple straps from getting tangled together. Improper storage can lead to irreparable damage that can shorten the working life of your strap.
