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.


The ICE-CURT ratchet spindle tensioner and the ICE-CURT-K bar spindle tensioner have proved themselves admirably here. Both offer users plenty of advantages. They exceed the material strength requirements of EN 12195-3 by far, whereby the bar spindle tensioner has been optimised for direct lashing.


Both products are easy to clean and grease, as well as easy to handle even when wearing gloves. In addition, they have an innovative, practical mechanical locking device and are especially light and sturdy thanks to their innovative forged design. The ICE-CURT tensioning elements have a patented preparation for an anti-theft device which can be padlocked to secure against theft (type ABUS 85/40HB or ABUS 85/30 for size 6). Both are equipped with the RUD ID-Point®.
