Load securing: saving costs and time

"Oversizing that does no one any good"                   

When lashing down, the main thing is the pre-tensioning force that presses the load downwards (Standard Tension Force, STF, see info box). Shippers, hauliers and drivers know this. Nevertheless, lashing straps with a lower STF are more in demand than those with a higher one. And this despite the fact that the more suitable versions are cheaper. - A curiosity that we talked about with Ralf Schmitz from SpanSet Product more

Load safety: What does “conforming to the norm” mean?
Considering a dilemma when labelling lashing systems

Are we allowed to use products labelled with the GS approval mark, which at the same time show the notice “conforming to the norm” as if they were properly approved safe-to-use products or tools respectively?
