Ratchet lashings - What’s in a label?

Date: 01/03/2016

With so many companies selling cheap Far Eastern imported ratchet lashings these days, this is a question that is being asked more and more.

As with most products there is a European standard (EN 12195-2) that covers the manufacture of ratchet lashings. Whilst it is not a legal requirement in the UK to use ratchet lashings produced to this standard, it is likely that in the event of a accident / shed load the investigating bodies will be looking to see if the system used is suitable for the task at hand.

We have been supplying ratchet lashings for over 30 years, in that time we have seen the market flooded with inferior products that claim to meet the requirements of the European standard. Indeed, a number of years ago we ourselves looked into importing directly from the Far East, but as part of our quality system a number of samples from different manufacturers were subjected to tensile testing - the results in most cases were found to be well below expectations.

As a result, we have continued to supply our British manufactured ratchet lashings, using quality ratchet handles and 7000daN webbing that far exceeds the requirements of EN 12195-2. Yes they cost more, but you can be assured that you are buying a quality British manufactured product that meets; and in fact exceeds, the requirements of EN 12195-2.

In order to help you in identifying which ratchet lashings actually comply with the EN standard, we have produced a leaflet titled ‘Ratchet Lashings - What’s in a label’, please download your copy by clicking the hyperlink.
