Lashing and Restraint

When designing a restraint system and determining the required number of restraints, it is the lashing capacity and not the breaking force which must be taken into account.The number of lashings needed can be calculated using the procedures outlined in the EN 12195 standard4. This will depend on the nature of the load (weight, dimensions, centre of gravity), the static friction between the load and the load bed, the securing method used (Direct, Indirect or combination of both) and the rated capacity of the lashings employed.
