Cargotec Corporation: MacGregor's new loose lashings storage system offers improved capacity and better use of deck space

CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 18 AUGUST 2015 AT 10 AM EEST

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has developed a new 40ft flat rack loose lashings
storage system that is designed to make better use of available deck space.

"An overall trend for twistlocks, stackers and midlocks is their weight
reduction," explains Perttu Jokinen, Lashing Portfolio Manager, Cargo Stowage
and Securing Systems, MacGregor. "This can often lead to the maximum volume
of a storage bin being reached before its maximum payload. Therefore, we have
looked carefully at capacity in terms of volume when designing our new
storage bins and flat racks."
MacGregor's new flat rack system meets ISO standards and can accommodate a
total of 16 storage bins that are colour-coded for twistlocks, midlocks,
stackers and damaged products. Two flat racks stacked on top of each other
and connected with twistlocks are the equivalent dimensions of a high cube
container (9'6", 2896mm). Flat rack is operated as a standard container and
other containers can be loaded on top of it. As usual for flat racks, it
should only be lifted from the top corner fittings with a spreader lifting
frame or from the bottom corner fittings with suitable lifting gear.

The new flat rack has been approved by classification society DNVGL according
to the requirements of the International Convention for Safe Containers
(CSC). When empty, the flat rack's weight is 2,500kg, and it has a maximum
payload of 32,000kg.

The bins come in two different sizes with basic dimensions corresponding to
MacGregor's previous SB-8/1 and E16M storage bins.
