Lashing Break Bulk Cargo

Cordlash one-way heavy duty cargo lashings are a cost- and time saving alternative for steel chains and ratchet straps to secure dynamic and project cargo on ships.

Break-bulk cargo shipped in and on board of ships can be exposed to extreme external influences. The unique combination of Cordstrap’s woven polyester lashing with our unique patented Dynablock load buckle and in-house developed tooling are the safe and light-weight alternative to steel chains and wire.

Cordstrap’s heavy-duty polyester lashings solutions will not damage cargo during the voyage and ensure there will be no slippage during the longest voyages.

Dynamic Cargo Solutions

Prevent any slip in the buckle

Do you ship dynamic cargo, or static cargo that behaves dynamically during transportation? For such cargos, we have developed the Dynablock® buckle.

Grooves on this innovative and patented Cordstrap invention, eliminate the risk of slippage in the buckle during transport.

Dynablock® is the safest and most effective way to secure your static and dynamic loads quickly and easily.

Dunnage Bags

If you need a solution to quickly and safely stow you cargo inside the ships hull, dunnage bags are a good option. They are a faster, easier and much more cost-effective option when compared with wood blocking and bracing.

We specialise in poly woven dunnage bags. Our bags have the highest puncture and moisture resistance off all types of dunnage bags.

There are 5 strength levels of dunnage bags. We provide all strength levels. They are available in standard sizes, and based on your specific requirements, we can also manufacture them in your preferred size.
