Cargo Restraint System AS/NZS 4380

A cargo restraint system, also known as a cargo securing system or cargo securing arrangement, is a set of devices, equipment, and procedures used to secure cargo in various types of transportation vehicles, such as trucks, ships, airplanes, and trains. The primary purpose of a cargo restraint system is to prevent cargo from shifting, moving, or becoming unstable during transit, which could lead to accidents, damage to the cargo, and harm to the vehicle or its occupants.

In any webbing restraint system, the lashing capacity (LC) of each system must take account of the conditions of use and be compatible with any loads inherent in and applied to the system, and each component should readily connect with each adjacent component.
Therefore, it is important that restraint systems be quickly and positively identified in service for size, capacity and if applicable, quality grade.

Combined lashing: A device for securing a load, consisting of a tensioning device and textile webbing combined with chains, steel wire ropes, or the like, with or without end fittings

Lashing capacity (LC):One half of the minimum braking strength of the system which is designed to sustain in use in straight pull normally expressed in kilograms (kg) rather than kilogram force (kgf).

Fixed end length (Lgf):The fixed end length is measured between tensioning device and load-bearing point of end fitting to the outer turning radius of the connection of the webbing (refer to Figure 1).

Adjustable end length (Lgl):The adjustable end length is measured between the end of the webbing to the load-bearing point of the end fitting or formed eye in the case where no fitting is supplied (refer to Figure 1).
