KAM Transport Companies & Thermo products
Technical product and compliance specialist
Our products comply to current standards and regulations and are manufactured in accordance to quality controlled processes. "Safety first" is our motto.
Choosing the right lashing
Lashings are the most common way to secure cargo. The choice of lashing depends on the type of goods and the choice of cargo carriers. Please, contact us for advice and recommendations in order to ensure the correct solution for your goods.
Corner protections and stops
Corner protections are used to protect products and goods from damage when using straps or lashings. The different types of stops are used to prevent the cargo from sliding against the surface.
The loadbinder is used for adjusting the length of the lashing chain. The loadbinder hooks are connected to the chain links.
Cargo bars and shoring beams
Cargo bars and shoring beams are easily used to support and separate the goods on the carrier. In our product range you will find different cargo bars such as gas cargo bars, LF bars and round alumium cargo bars.
Double decking is a beam/track system, which makes it possible to load the goods on two levels instead of goods on goods. As a result the risk of damaging the goods is reduced and a more cost effective solution is obtained, as you can transport twice as much cargo.
Forankra has a wide range of thermo-products, that can be used on most types of cargo carriers. With highly insulating material in the thermo-walls and thermo covers good insulation between different temperature zones can be obtained, enabling safe transportation of frozen and refrigerated products as well as frost-sensitive products.
Other useful products
SECU Stick is a Multi-tool which can be used in most situations where it is difficult to access different areas due to height or distance, such as placements of lashings or cargo nets. SECU Stick has a built-in function which makes it easy to fixate or remove tarpaulin slats as well as to position corner protection.
Tenmet 500 is a measurement tool which allows truck drivers to check the tensioning force in the straps in a quick and easy way and thereby ensuring safe cargo securing. Tenmet is easy to use - just attach it to the strap, push down the handle and read the tension force on the meter. This measurement is easy to perform and takes only a few seconds.
Wind-X is a system that simplifies working with lashings. The system includes the following parts – Wind-X which is a web-roller that helps you roll up the lashing with an electric screwdriver, Grip-X makes sure that the hook on the lashing is kept in place and Lock-X is a velcro product that locks the webbing and keeps it in place.
