Quality: Lashing Capacity (LC) versus
the Breaking Strength (BS)

According to EN 12195, the Lashing Capacity (LC) at least 30% of the Breaking Strength (BS).

The BS however, need not be indicated on the label.

In practice often cheaper straps sold with a lower breaking strength than stated on the label, with all the risks this implies.
Additional possibilities Different lengths and colors or a private printing are available upon request.
Remark SHF = Standard Hand Force = the optimum force to tighten the tensioner. For many users, this is not known. They tighten the webbing as hard as possible, resulting in a fast aging of the ratchet and damage to the load.

Too strong tightening also makes no sense.

The webbing is made of polyester. Under the influence of temperature and movements of the vehicle, the STF in short time all revert back to the default value.
