RUD Tensioning devices.
Load securing: Secure tensioning of lashing chains.
Only a correctly tensioned lashing chain can reliably fulfil its function. RUD lashing chains are tensioned by rotating the tensioning element. For this, the tensioning elements must be positioned in such a way that they are not at the edges when in use.
During inclined lashing, the lashing leg may only be pre-tensioned to such an extent that the chain no longer sags. As far as tensioning elements are concerned, a distinction is made between two types: ratchet spindle and bar spindle tensioners.
