The main reason most commercial vehicles are on the road is to transport cargo from one destination to another using semi truck parts. E Track accessories and straps will secure your cargo inside your semi trailer or to your flatbed truck. Without this system, your equipment / cargo will be vulnerable to be damaged or broken during transport.
There are several components that make up an E Track system. The accessories include rings, straps, and fittings that all work together to make a complete E Track system. You must consider the size and weight of your cargo because the straps and accessories have a working load limit.
For smaller lighter loads, the e track cam strap system is ideal. Lighter, simpler, and easier to use, the tension on the load is controlled by pulling the strap by hand. This is ideal for more sensitive loads that require firm yet gentle securing.
For larger heavier loads, you will want to use e track ratchet strap system. The ratcheting action makes it possible to secure your load much tighter than what is possible by hand. Higher break strength and working load limits make it the perfect choice for locking down your valuable cargo.
Of course, you will need something to secure your straps to. Horizontal and vertical e tracks are available, and the finish varies from galvanized to a painted track. From 2″ to 10″ wide, once these rails are securely mounted to the floor, walls or bed of your semi truck or trailer, you will be able to confidently secure your load for any situation. Add to that an adjustable shoring beams, and you will be able to compartmentalize your load area, allowing you to access one area without disturbing any others.
When transporting your loads, there are other hardware and accessories that can be helpful; these include moving supplies like boxes, blankets, dollies and straps.
