When transporting DSB loads it is important that they are secure. To achieve this all
loads are secured to the flatrack with transport straps.
The transport strap consists of a webbing strap with hooks on each end and a ratchet
mechanism to tighten the strap. Positioned over the webbing strap are two wear sleeves
(see Figure 3. 56), which are moved along the webbing straps and positioned at corners
of the load, these protect the webbing from sharp edges.
The following figures show the lashing arrangements for the flatrack loads, they also show
the positioning of the wear sleeves.
