V Board Cargo Corner Safety Bumper
Cargo hauled on flatbed trucks and secured by straps or chains are often damaged by said tie-downs. The top layer of freight usually gets crushed by the pressure of the strap that is pulled tightly over the load. Vee boards offer a simple way to minimize damage to your cargo and straps. By redistributing the pressure of the strap over the whole board, they reduce strain to the load. Edge protectors can ensure your freight will be safe and your tie-down straps whole, even after a long trip in harsh conditions.
12" Plastic Vee Board Load Edge Protector with Slot
These cargo load safety guards are perfect for protecting straps on loads of steel, lumber, and other building products. They are small enough to allow for flexible usage on mixed and uneven loads like open drums and power tools. These plastic Vee Boards are 12" long panels that smoothly cover the corners of loads and go 8.25" down both the top and side of the load; they are available in five colors - red, blue, green, yellow and orange. This 12" V board has a 4.5" wide slot on one side specifically for winch straps or chains to run through. This secures the tie-down over the cargo while cushioning the load, minimizing damage to the freight and avoiding tear to the strap.
Vee board edge protectors have many size and other options available to ensure your load is completely covered. Click for the same 12" V boards with two strap slots or without slots. Check out or selection of 24", 36", 48", and 78" long boards in standard and heavy duties. For heavy loads of bricks or soft loads like cotton, choose the 24" or 36" brick guards, and click for portable strap protectors single or 20-pack. Use the Vee Board handle to set edge protectors in place.
Using V Board cargo corner guards ensures safety to your freight, handlers, and tie-down straps, helping you avoid lawsuits and constant strap expenditure. It helps you comply with your federal requirement to use an edge protection that 'resists abrasion, cutting, and crushing' in a case where 'a tie-down would be subject to abrasion or cutting at the point where it touches an article of cargo'.
