Peck & Hale Offers Container Lashing System Literature

Peck & Hale Inc., W. Sayville, N.Y., designer and manufacturer of material handling and cargo securing systems, has completed their contract with Bell Aerospace in Buffalo, N.Y., for a container lashing system to be used on the new LACV-30 vehicle. The LACB (Lighter Air Custion Vehicle) is capable of carrying up to 30 tons over land, water, swamp, snow, ice and low brush at speeds up to 62 mph. It is being built by Bell for the U.S.

Army Mobility Equipment Research and Development Command.

The contract was the development contract conducted by Peck & Hale for the Navy several years ago.

The cargo securing system used on the LACV-30 combines the advantages of rigid rods and quick acting tensioners. Rods are easily inserted into the top ISO container hole from the deck, eliminating insertion normally requiring a ladder which is time consuming and hazardous, especially during emergency situations. The light-weight tensioners replace heavy cumbersome turnbuckles, and are stowable along with the rods in small compact bins.

Peck & Hale has designed many cargo and vehicle lashing systems for the U.S. Government over the past 35 years. The company is the major supplier of these systems currently used on military assault, support and transport ships.
