Kinedyne revises chain/load binder product offering

Nov. 5, 2012

To meet new recommended standards for load binders, Kinedyne has revised its chain/load binder product offerings to make them fully compliant.

The Web Sling and Tie-Down Assn. (WSTDA) recently published a set of recommended standards for load binders, Kinedyne said. In the spring of 2011, the association released the publication “WSTDA T-6 Recommended Standard Specification for Load Binders Used with Chain Tie-Downs” to help ensure a minimum level of quality and traceability for all load binders, Kinedyne said.

The changes to Kinedyne’s load binders were made in anticipation of action by federal and local enforcement agencies to eventually adopt the new standard into existing cargo securement regulations, the company said.

“The WSTDA is a widely recognized and respected group that many in our industry look to for leadership and guidance,” said Ralph Abato, vice president of strategic initiatives. “Since no regulations previously existed for load binders, the new standard will help customers qualify their vendors and select those who provide safe and durable products that meet their cargo securement needs and meet all relevant industry standards.  Kinedyne’s investment in our load binder product line will reinforce how committed the company is to providing the highest quality products in the industry.”

Kinedyne said its enhancements include:

  • Manufactured & tested per the new WSTDA T-6 Standards for Load Binders.
  • Stamped markings on the binder with the Kinedyne logo, a manufacturer code and reference to the date the binder was manufactured.
  • Tags attached to each binder with warning & operating instructions in trilingual (English, French, Spanish) language formats.

WSTDA is a technical association dedicated to the development and promotion of voluntary recommended standards. Members of WSTDA include a wide variety of manufacturers and suppliers of synthetic lifting and tie-down products as well as transport chains and load binders.
