Regupol® Anti-Slip Mats
When goods are being transported, acceleration and braking together with lateral centrifugal force or vibration generate forces approaching the actual weight of the load. As a result, the load can slip and cause severe damage to property as well as accidents with casualties.
For example, the load can break through the front wall of a truck and cause severe injury to the driver. Dangers are also involved in unloading loads which have slipped. Frequently the load also falls from the vehicle and causes a hazard to other road users. Incorrectly secured loads are often also damaged themselves. In Germany alone, this results in load damages amounting to several hundred million euros a year. Incorrectly secured loads are estimated to cause approx. 20% of all accidents in heavy goods traffic.
