They are a better choice than cam straps for heavy loads. At Strapworks.com, you will find a comprehensive selection of one inch ratchet straps with flat nylon webbing. Now don't think one inch isn't thick enough. Strapworks' one inch ratchet straps are actually pretty heavy duty.

With the ratchet strap pictured, you are ordering a one inch flat nylon ratchet strap. The flat nylon has high abrasion resistance that works well for the above applications. However, a strap is only as strong as its weakest link. Therefore, it's important to consider different factors when it comes to choosing the correct ratchet strap for your intended application. The safe working load is one-third the breaking strength For example, Strapworks' flat nylon webbing one inch has a breaking strength of 3000 pounds, so a safe working load is 1000 pounds. You should also consider your hardware and stitching. The one inch ratchet buckle is not rated. Be sure to calculate your safe working load for both buckles and your stitching. When in doubt, buy one strap and test it for your intended application.

Strapworks' "Patterned Polyester
" is polyester that has been sublimated. Sublimation is a process that virtually tattoos the ink into the webbing by turning a solid ink into a permeating gas. This process is done in house and it allows for great detail and vivid custom colorfast colors. Polyester is the only material we carry that is consistent in its ability to be sublimated.
Ratchet Straps made with polyester webbing has the same attributes and characteristics as patterned polyester. Strapworks' polyester webbing is also sublimated, but is sublimated in solid colors. Polyester has all of the benefits of flat nylon, high breaking strength, high abrasion resistance, soft, smooth and shiny. It also has the benefits of polypropylene, low water absorption, high UV protection and it is mildew and rot resistant as well.
Ratchet Straps made with heavyweight polypropylene webbing
are suitable for medium duty outdoor applications. Heavyweight polypropylene webbing has excellent UV protect and does not absorb water quickly giving it better resistant to mildew and rot. However, polypropylene does not have good abrasion resistance, so it is not recommended for use against rough edges.
Ratchet Straps made with polyester seatbelt webbing
The 1" seatbelt weave webbing is lighter in weight than the regular polyester, but close in strength. Low stretch, low absorption rate, non-porous fiber and high strength make this an excellent choice for outdoor uses as well!
The sublimation process may take an additional 2-3 days to fulfill your order.
