Building material transport: Our team designsbuiltsadvises Securement
We built Load Securement. And you?
The construction industry is one of the most important driving forces for the economy.
Do you want to protect your goods from damage when transporting building materials? At Rothschenk, we take care of load securing.
An essential basis for ensuring that your customers can be supplied smoothly.
Rough surfaces and high weights meet soft insulating materials and light goods. The requirements for load securing of building materials are as varied as the load securing equipment.
In addition to classics like the orange double-chamber edge protection angle and lashing straps, we also have innovations like our [R] Y-Cover for transporting soft packaging, such as wood fiber/glass fiber insulation.
Common products for securing loads of building materials
Load securement knowledge for your industry
Products from our store suitable for you
Securing building materials is purely a matter for experts due to the wide range of requirements. When developing load securing equipment for this purpose, the focus is on minimizing hazards and securing loads in compliance with the relevant regulations. This is achieved with the help of professional load securing articles specially adapted to your industry.
Like many of our products, this one was developed from and for practical use. The problem was the transport of soft packaging such as wood fiber insulation boards, glass fiber insulation rolls and other light, soft building materials. In addition, loading and unloading should be as time-saving as possible, especially when delivering to construction sites.
The solution is our [R] Y-CoverA combination of a classic lashing strap with a tarpaulin. The tarpaulin holds the goods down over as large an area as possible. The use of the lashing strap has already been proven a million times over. Due to the simple handling, the shipper saves valuable time, especially in factory transport or delivery to end customers.
Edge protection - plastic double-chambered
Another good way to distribute the lashing forces over a larger area is to use our Edge protection angle in stable double chamber design. Due to its special design, it is extremely robust and torsion-resistant. The UV-resistant angle is available in many standard lengths and can also be made to measure by us on request. Simply write us a short email.
[R] lashing strap long lever pull ratchet Ergo
In contrast to the classic pressure ratchet where the forces have to be applied pushing away from you, the [R] lashing strap long lever pull ratchet Ergo on tension. This has the advantage that the user can apply force with his own weight during loading. In addition, this design has a much longer lever, so that the manual forces to be applied are much lower.
[R] lashing strap retractor with holding magnets
You want to save even more time? Then we have something for you. Our [R] Lashing strap retractor are attached to any metallic surface by means of a practical magnetic holder. The loose end is hooked into a slotted shaft and then wound up in seconds by means of a hand crank. In addition to saving a considerable amount of time, this also increases the discardability of your lashing material, as it does not brush against the ground, as is often the case in practice.
Real edge protection - not a toy
Edge protection by Rothschenk are extremely sturdy. Constructed with a double-chambered profile, they are both light and sturdy.
Available in common standard lengths or individually cut-to-length for you. Turn the field and find out more...
Small cause, big effect. The increase in the coefficient of friction through [R] Anti-slip Mats must not be underestimated. In addition, the rubber mats protect both the goods and the transport vehicles from damage during the transport of building materials.
Lashing straps - are you still winding by hand?
It is very annoying and also time-consuming to manually wind a lashing strap. With our lashing strap rewinder it becomes a piece of cake.
It is simply mounted in the vehicle and the lashing strap is easily wound up with a hand crank.
Turn the area and become a fan!
More about Container shipping
We understand our customers, because the special challenges of load securing for the construction industry are manifold:
Irregular shapes and sizes: Building materials such as bricks or soft insulating materials often have irregular shapes and sizes, which makes load securing more difficult. The load securing systems must be flexible and able to adapt to the different shapes and sizes.
Weight: Building materials can often be very heavy, which places additional demands on load securing. The load securing systems must be able to handle the weight of the building materials and ensure that they do not slip or tip over during transport.
Stackability: Building materials are often stacked in pallets to facilitate transport and storage. The load securing systems must ensure that the pallets are stable and securely stacked to prevent the building materials from tipping over or falling down.
The particular challenges for load securing in the construction industry lie primarily in the variety of building materials transported and the different shapes and sizes of the load units. Building materials such as bricks and soft insulating materials place specific demands on load securing.
For example, the following load securing equipment can be used for securing bricks:
- Anti-slip mats: These are placed between the bricks and the loading area to prevent the load from shifting.
- Lashing straps: Lashing straps are placed around the bricks and attached to the side walls or lashing points of the transport vehicle to tie down the load.
- Edge protectors: Sensitive goods are protected by the edge protectors, especially their edges. But especially on rough surfaces, such as bricks, the load-securing equipment, e.g. a webbing strap, is protected.
The following load securing equipment can be used for securing loads of soft insulation materials such as mineral wool:
- Stretch Film: Insulation materials can be wrapped with stretch film to hold them together and prevent slippage.
- Lashing straps: Lashing straps can be placed around the insulation materials and attached to the side walls or lashing points of the transport vehicle to tie down the load.
- Anti-slip mats: Anti-slip mats can be placed between the insulation materials and the loading area to prevent the load from slipping.
It is important that load securing equipment is used in accordance with load securing regulations and guidelines to ensure safe transportation of building materials.
