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.
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.
