For the Protection of Transported Goods
RUBBERTECH SPECIAL, PROTECT and SECURE anti-slip mats are especially designed for low-cost, efficient protection of products during transportation e.g. by road, rail, ship and air freight.
Transported goods are held in place on the transport vehicle by the friction provided by Rubbertech anti-slip mats and are further secured by lashing straps. The high friction coefficient of Rubbertech's anti-slip mats provides an outstanding grip on even the smoothest surfaces, practically eliminating shifting or slipping during transport.
Unforeseen situations – such as abrupt changes of direction, swerving to avoid hazards, sudden braking or collisions can cause very high inertial and centrifugal forces.
- WE CAN SOLVE YOUR TRANSPORT PROBLEMS.
- A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF HEAVY GOODS ACCIDENTS ARE CAUSED BY INCORRECTLY SECURED LOADS.
- RUBBERTECH ANTI-SLIP MATS ENSURE 60% OF LOAD SECURING.
- EASY AND QUICK TO USE, SAVING BOTH TIME AND MONEY.
- REDUCING THE NUMBER OF LASHING STRAPS REQUIRED.
- WITH RUBBERTECH ANTI-SLIP YOU'RE ON THE SAFE SIDE.
Means used for securing loads must therefore provide the necessary holding power to keep the load in place in such situations.
According to the applicable regulations for motor vehicle traffic, every load must be secured with 80% of it’s weight toward the front and 50% toward the sides and back.
Sufficient load securing implies the need to prevent the load from moving due to centrifugal and mass forces, which can occur especially during braking or in cornering.
The increased friction provided by RUBBERTECH anti-slip mats also minimises the required tensioning in lashing straps. This is of particular benefit when transporting items such as panels, pipes, plasterboard or any other products which can compress or deform under loading stress.
The high quality of Rubbertech anti-slip mats and their outstanding contribution to transport safety are evidenced by their superb physical properties.
RUBBERTECH anti-slip mats have a proven track record established over many years of reliable service for companies all over the world.
In other words... with anti-slip mats from RUBBERTECH, you know you’re on the safe side!
Choices for all applications
RUBBERTECH SPECIAL has been developed to cover a wide range of safety requirements. The mats were designed with a kinetic friction coefficient of 0.80.
A selection of material thicknesses offer very good maximum surface load values ranging from 125 to 200 t/m , allowing exact adaption to your individual load securing requirements.
As with all RUBBERTECH anti-slip mats, SPECIAL anti-slip mats can be re-used many times until they reach the replacement state of wear.
RUBBERTECH PROTECT has an extremely high kinetic friction coefficient of 0.91, and is an ideal solution, optimally countering any horizontal movement of the load (sliding).
Due to the especially homogeneous distribution of the granules, RUBBERTECH Protect also provides maximum flexibility, with excellent adaption to loads that have extreme contours.
The large range of available thicknesses ensures especially effective and economical securing of loads.
RUBBERTECH SECURE is the anti-slip mat for heavy loads.
The combination of an exceptionally high surface load capacity (max.500 t/m*) and an excellent kinetic friction coefficient (0.80) makes this product the first choice when it comes to securing extremely heavy loads.
RUBBERTECH secure is a very high density material, and therefore is available in two thicknesses (8mm & 10mm) to keep within the permissable maximum compression parameter of 30%.
Coefficients of friction
The procedure for determining coefficients of friction applies in particular to securing loads on road vehicles and can also be applied to other means of transportation (such as railways, ships, aircraft, combined transportation) when adapted to the loading principles applicable in such cases.
The resistance to applied forces when there is simultaneous relative movement between a body and an underlying surface.
Friction in which the forces acting on the bodies are not sufficient to bring about a relative movement between a body and another it is resting on.
