The RB5050LH-ERG-HD is a heavy duty long wide handled Ergonomic ratchet buckle with Locking Ratchet mechanism designed for 50mm webbing. The ergonomic ratchet is tensioned by pulling the handle downwards rather than pushing upwards as on standard designed ratchet buckles. With the extended handle and the ergonomic design less force is needed to apply the tension thus putting less stress on your back. The ratchet also features a rotating handle to make tensioning even easier.
The ratchet buckle has a breaking strength (BS) of 5000Kg. The ratchet buckle is a locking ratchet and has a rotating steel handle. The buckle is a standard ergonomic ratchet as used for restraining lorry straps in road transport.
The ratchet meets the requirements of the European Load Restraint Legislation Standard EN12195-2:2001 which requires the buckle to have a lashing capacity (LC) of 25kN (2500kg) stamped on the ratchet together with the suppliers name GTF and part number RB5050LH-ERG-HD for full traceability. The breaking strength (BS) of 5000Kg is also shown to indicate the maximum load that can be applied to the buckle before failure.
