Transporting hazardous cargo requires specialised containers and tension belts. Dosing cans offer an effective means to store and distribute hazardous liquids in a safe way. These cans are made of high-quality stainless steel and are equipped with flame barriers, pressure relief valves and a bracket for earthing. Safety containers are the best choice to dispense hazardous fluids. These containers are made of steel plate and colour coded red, with hazard signs. These containers feature a brass pump and are equipped with a mechanism to block flames. Tension belts, which include tie-down straps or ratchet straps, offer effective means to fix and hold such safety containers and other cargo during transportation. These straps include webbing, and tie-down hardware such as a ratchet. Loop straps are looped over the container or hardware and the ends snap-hooked together, to provide tension. Two-piece tension straps are also looped around the container, but are used to fasten the container to the truck, pallet or other containers. Considering the consequences of a hazardous container breaking loose during transport, it is important to select lashing straps with the size, length and load capacity suitable for the application. High-quality lashing straps are made of 100 percent polyester and feature reinforced loops. Opt for straps that are colour coded according to the applicable standards.
