Atlanta, Georgia (March 5, 2014) – Global Parts, Inc., leading retailer of heavy-duty truck and trailer parts and accessories, has started manufacturing their own brand of e-track straps. The straps are to be stamped with the GPD logo, and are expected to be of a quality that matches that of other brands.
They currently have around twenty types of cargo control straps, all of which vary in either color or dimension. Some of the product line include 2″x20′ blue e-track ratchets, 2″x16′ gray e-track ratchets with spring fittings, 20′ blue e-track ratchets and van tie offs, 2″x12′ yellow heavy-duty trailer ratchets, 2″x12′ yellow cargo van tie downs, and 2″x20′ blue secure ratchets.
Like other straps on the market, the new products of Global Parts, Inc. are to be rated and governed by Federal DOTY standards. The criteria covers break strength, working load limit (WLL), and rated load capacity. Strength is determined by the straight pull application. WLL refers to the maximum load a component or assembly should be subjected to. Rated load capacity is regulated by industry or legislative standards and may vary among industries.
An e-track system is useful for securing cargo in trailers, and includes the e-track, the straps, and required accessories. The e-track usually comes in 5′ lengths, where each stick is 1/8″ thick and has mounting holes and rectangular slots. These can be cut and mounted on either the side of a trailer or along its flooring. Ways of mounting include screwing, riveting, and welding.
Global Parts, Inc. also manufactures their own e-track system kits. Theirs can be purchased as plain galvanized steel, or coated with powder for painting and avoiding rust. They also offer a wide variety of these products, as well as numerous accessories that work well with hooks, tie-offs, and straps.
