RO-RO LASHINGS--CURRENT AND FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS

The author lists Trailer Lashings, Cargo Lashings, Automobile Lashings and Container Lashings and discusses several misapplications of some of these. He describes the advantages and disadvantages of chain and polyester webbing and goes on to examine wire rope, bottle screws or turn-buckles, steel rods and one trip lashings. The author considers that loose cargo lashing problems may be solved by building in and storing webbing lashings to roll trailers and concludes with a reference to a new tensioner to be introduced by his company, SpanSet Marine, which will operate both pneumatically and hydraulically and which will have tension chains, webbing and roundslings.
