Kinedyne has introduced a new family of cargo securement straps — the Rhino Max winch, ratchet, and logistics straps.

Rhino Max and K-Force winch straps offer a Working Load Limit of 6,670 pounds, 23% above the current standard of 5,400 pounds, the company says. The corresponding ratchet straps have a Working Load Limit of 4,000 pounds, which is 20% above the current industry standard of 3,335 pounds.

Meanwhile, the K-Force logistics strap has a Working Load Limit of 1,500 pounds, which is almost 50% higher than a traditional 1,000-pound rating, according to the company.

Special looms at a Prattville, Alabama, location has made it possible to introduce more polyester material to deliver the added strength.
