Load Restraint: An Important Detail

Australia’s Defence Force is subject to tough and extreme conditions, and RUD lashing systems are designed to combat just that.

When your trucks go out on the road, when you deliver heavy equipment to a building site and when you transport for a living, you need to think about load restraint. It’s a detail, but a costly detail to get wrong.

Get your load restraints wrong and you can face fines, or worse. It's simply not a place to compromise. You need a purpose-built load restraint system from a company that strives for dynamic innovation, yet still offers traditional qualities like reliability and simplicity.

You also want a partner who is fully certified with ISO, NATA and LEEA accreditation, so you know that their systems have gone through every possible test.
