Eight meters of lashing chain simply thrown loosely over the left shoulder at the same time six meters casually in the right hand – and this by our petite colleague Halina Kampa from the test room.
Of course this only works with our textile lashing chain DoNova® PowerLash whose individual chain links in the version with 25 mm width and 8 layers of webbing only weigh about 60 grams. At the same time it is extremely robust and secures loads with an LC of 10,000 daN – which is comparable to a heavy 13 mm steel chain of grade 8. Even stronger DoNova® systems even reach an LC of 20,000 daN – just like 16 mm steel chains of grade 10.
We were allowed to equip ten truck rear doors of a Dolezych Germany customer with this great picture and are very proud that these trailers with our motif are now on the roads of Europe. Maybe you will discover one of these vehicles one day!
“Dollitschech?” – “No, Dolezych.” responds Tim Dolezych with a laugh to JP’s question about the correct pronunciation of the company name. A very entertaining back-and-forth develops on this topic, which you can watch in the video “JP Performance – Road Trip to the Porsche Doc | Porsche 964 Turbo” on JP Performance’s YouTube channel. JP is – like Dolezych – at home in Dortmund and stands like no other for the topics car and professional tuning.
The focus of the clip which lasts about half an hour is a Porsche 964 Turbo engine that is to be transported from Dortmund to Rimbach in Bavaria for repairs – but it goes without saying that the load must first be properly secured. But how is it actually ensured that load securing equipment such as lashing straps actually achieve the performance promised on the label? And how does a lashing strap test actually work? JP personally picked up the answers to these questions in our test room.
Find out in the video whether the valuable load can ultimately be transported to its destination and back without damage. One thing’s for sure: The pronunciation of “Dolezych” is at least clear in the end.
