What’s the best Cargo Net for my Ute & why cover your load!

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid”]

Have you ever wondered what all the fuss is about covering your load? Have you ever thought – is this just a hoax?

Well it’s not really a hoax, it’s just that some people think that you have to have a net on your ute at all times – no matter what, but in fact, it’s only when you are carrying something in your ute that you need to make sure that it is secured. It doesn’t matter how you secure it – as long as it is secure.

So why a Cargo Net ? Well, a Cargo Net is the easiest device that can be used to stop small items from coming out of your ute or truck tray in the event of an accident or even just going over a bump.

There are various common ways to cover your load:

• Fishing Net Style

• Tarpaulin

• Shade Cloth

• Safeguard Cargo Nets

Fish netting is generally made from polyethylene, polypropylene, polyester or nylon. There are two types of manufacturing processes giving a knitted or knotted net. Knotted nets can be made from braided or twisted twines, while knitted nets are made by knitting very fine filaments. Either style, Fish Nets are sometimes quite cumbersome to use – especially with sticks and twigs as part of your load. These nets have been the more common on the market due to their low cost. Some Fish Nets come with rather large holes making them a very impractical option (and even illegal).

Tarpaulin:

The use of tarpaulins for covering loads are particularly useful for when the weather turns bad or you want to protect your gear from the sun. Tarpaulins will definitely ensure that no loose items will come out of your tray (if the Tarp is fitted correctly) however, there is no holding strength that can ensure a secure load especially if the items are large and heavy – you would need to use the Tarp in conjunction with tie down straps or ropes.

Shade Cloth:

Some people have made a few nets out of shade cloth – this can work… once again, nothing is restrained with these types of nets.

Safeguard Cargo Nets:

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text admin_label=”Caption” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid”]

Safeguard Cargo Nets are very heavy duty and neat to look at!

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid”]

Safeguard have gone to a little more effort to overcome many of the issues associated with the other styles of nets on the market. It’s a little more like a grid of “tie down straps” connected to a “shade cloth” like mesh. The mesh is what holds the small items in, the “tie down straps” or strapping is what holds the large heavier items in. It’s really an All-In-One solution that many people have been looking for in a Cargo Net. With this type of design, it allows for certification (Australian & New Zealand standard 4380 2001) – which makes it the only Load Rated Restraint that also acts as a Cargo Net. Yes, they are more expensive than the rest of the market – but it all comes down to the quality, material used, practicality and ease of use.

One of the other advantages of using a Safeguard Cargo Net is – it doesn’t get tangled! How many times have you seen someone struggling with a fishing net style cargo net – it’s so frustrating to watch.

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid”]

So yes, we say that ultimately, the Safeguard Net lends itself as the best choice for a Cargo net, and it’s load rated – certified with Australian Standards! The first and only of its kind in Australia

What price do you put on a life? Secure your load!

A brick flying off an another vehicle travelling at 100km/h in the opposite direction resulted in a 29-year-old Mother of 2 being killed instantly when the brick went through the windscreen hitting her in the head while her 2 children were in the back seat.

It was an unsecured load that caused the unnecessary grief of this young family, that’s why if you use rope, bungees or fish net style cargo nets, it’s never okay… even if you drive slowly.

Cheeper nets are generally only containment nets and they don’t comply with National load restraint legislation – nor will they stop small or heavy items existing the vehicle if you have to swerve suddenly or hit a bump.

These days, it’s important to make sure your load is secure, not just from a safety aspect, but the law is also cracking down on it – there are some rather large fines happening in Australia for unsecured and unconstrained loads. It can be a fairly expensive exercise to ignore the warnings of load restraint laws.

Safeguard Cargo Nets offer not only a containment cargo net, but a load rated one too – all in one! In Australia,
it’s law to secure your load and that’s why Safeguard Cargo Nets have been leading the way in cargo load restraint since 2011 – constantly improving & manufacturing only the best & safest cargo nets.

Safeguard Nets offer a neater solution with other benefits such as the load rating and certification.

Various states in Asutralia are realising the potential risks associated with unsecured loads, so even though it has been law for some time to have you load cover, they are noe enforcing the legislation by bringing in heavy fines.

We’ve heard of some cases where people are getting fined for every loose item in the tray – this can equate to a lot of money – it would have been cheaper to buy a cargo net.

It’s not worth the expense of putting it off – get yourself a cargo net and have your load covered.
