Cargo Stay Bars
Cargo Stay Bars
Cargo stay bars also known as ratcheting cargo bars are load restraint bars for trucks, vans and ISO containers which secure loads during transit. Aluminium cargo stays are available in adjustable lengths from 1.0m to 2.9m and heavy duty steel cargo stays bars in 2.1m to 2.6m. Cargo stay bars
with hooped braces provide extra load containment by increasing the surface
area against the load.
Cargo stay bars, also sometimes known as ratchet cargo restraint bars are high strength and durable for securing loads with rubber end pads to increase grip and stability on smooth walls which can flex during transportation. They are available in a range of different options including standard aluminium cargo stays and heavy duty steel cargo stay bars.
We recommend using cargo stays when transporting loads in box bodied vehicles, trailers or ISO containers when there is a risk of goods moving or falling. It is vital to make sure that any cargo stay bars you’re using are secure before you set off. Failure to do so could result in damage to goods.
Weight capacity of cargo stay bars
One of the most important things to consider is the weight of the load when you’re using a cargo stay bar. You’ll need to have a rough idea of how much your cargo weighs and use a suitable type and number of bars to secure it. The safe working load limit (WLL) on aluminium cargo stay bars is 600kg spread equally across the load. Our heavy duty steel cargo stay bars have a 1000kg load limit spread equally across bar. To safely secure a load, the combined WLL must be greater than the weight of the load itself. It’s always recommended to use bars in pairs depending on where the load in located.
Length of bars
The cargo stay bar needs to be long enough to reach from one side of the vehicle or trailer to the opposite side or floor to ceiling to safely secure it for use. Bespoke length cargo stay bars are available upon request.
