Choosing the Right Chain Tie Downs for Your Cargo: A Comprehensive Guide

When it comes to securing cargo on flatbed trailers, choosing the right tie-downs is crucial for ensuring safety, efficiency, and compliance with transportation regulations. Chain tie-downs are popular due to their durability, strength, and versatility. As a leading provider of cargo securement devices, REVOLOK™ offers innovative solutions designed to enhance productivity and safety.

  1. Understanding Chain Tie Downs: Chain tie-downs consist of high-strength steel chains and hooks that are used to secure cargo on flatbed trailers. They are known for their exceptional strength and resistance to abrasion, making them ideal for heavy-duty applications. Chain tie-downs come in various grades, including Grade 70 and Grade 80, each with its own load rating and breaking strength. Consider the weight and size of your cargo to determine the appropriate grade for your needs.
  1. Compliance with Regulations: Safety should be the top priority when choosing tie-downs. Ensure that the chain tie-downs you select comply with industry regulations, such as those set by the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA). Look for tie-downs that meet or exceed your cargo’s Working Load Limit (WLL) requirements.
  1. Consider Your Cargo: Different types of cargo require specific tie-down configurations. Consider your load’s weight, dimensions, and characteristics when choosing chain tie-downs. Flatbed tie-downs should accommodate various cargo shapes and sizes, providing a secure connection and preventing shifting during transportation. REVOLOK™ offers the revolutionary REVOLOK™ 6600, a flatbed securement device that provides balance, safer, and faster loading and unloading times.
