Forces under Various Movements

Regupol® Anti-Slip Mats

Regupol® Anti-Slip Mats

1.0 G indicates the weight of loads. According to this, forces achieve up to 80% of the stated value due to various movements by means of transportation.

Inasmuch as friction force and securing force are acting together against cargo slippage, Regupol® Anti-Slip Mats are furthermore able to increase the friction force. Excellent anti-slip mats ensure at least 60% of load securing. However, tie-downs and similar fixing equipment must not be forgotten.

Acceleration forces in trucks
80% of load weight has to be compensated for load securing during driving manoeuvres of trucks.
Acceleration forces in trains
Extreme forces are generated during rail transport: load securing must withstand four times the load weight (combined transport).
Acceleration forces during waterway
Load securing for cargo ships must withstand 2.2 times the load weight.
Load securing
Correct load securing: anti-slip mats are coloured red.
