Legislation Changes: Strapping Round Timber

A new specification for timber haulage has recently been implemented.
This new specification means that STF (Standard Tension Force) must now meet or exceed 400daN in order to comply with new timber strapping legislation.
An STF rating of 400daN is achieved by using a long-handled pull-down (ergonomic) ratchet, which can apply a greater tensioning force on the webbing.
In recent weeks the team at K&S McKenzie has been manufacturing ratchet straps in-house to the new timber haulage specification. Not only do all our straps meet EN12195-2, but we can now also display an increased STF rating of 400daN for timber haulage.
All the straps we manufacture are batch number controlled and regularly tested to ensure we continue to meet these regulations.
Our in-house facility is able to manufacture straps with various fittings and colours, at custom lengths, and in large quantities. We can also print your name on the webbing should this be required.
Contact us today to find out more about timber strapping legislation or to enquire about purchasing compliant ratchet straps. Simply call 01228 528218 or email info@kandsmckenzieltdco.uk.
