About Breaking Strength
When ordering the ratchet strap pictured here on this page, you are ordering a ratchet strap made of 2-inch flat nylon webbing. The flat nylon has high abrasion resistance that works well for all heavyweight cargo applications. In our experience with straps, a strap is only as strong as its weakest link. A fool-proof guide line for finding a safe working load is to take the breaking strength and divide it by one third. For example, our flat nylon 2-inch webbing has a breaking strength of 5500 pounds. Therefore, a safe working load is 1833 pounds. A good rule of thumb is to also consider your hardware and stitching when deciding on the ideal heavyweight strap. The two inch ratchet buckle is not rated. You will also need to calculate your safe working load for both buckles and stitching. When in doubt with any strap, buy one strap and test it for the application that you'll be using it for. To see the technical specs for the two inch ratchet buckle, please click here.
Custom Webbing and Hardware Options
By ordering your 2 inch tie-down ratchet strap here at Strapworks, you have the option to include a buckle pad sewn on the strap as well. (Note that choosing the buckle pad option will add a sewn section of black heavyweight polypropylene under the buckle area to protect anything beneath it from scratching.) With the two inch flat nylon ratchet strap, your choice of end hardware includes: coated S-hooks, coated safety S-hooks, wire hooks 2 inch, O-rings and stainless steel S-hooks (uncoated). In addition to nylon, we also proudly offer a host of other webbing options that may be ordered individually or bundled with strap hardware to create a custom strap. Read on for a brief overview of the advantages and disadvantages of our available webbing materials.
Ratchet straps made with flat nylon webbing are the webbing of choice for high abrasion applications. Flat nylon is not recommended for use in or around water continuously because it is less water resistant, making it susceptible to mildew and rot.
Ratchet Straps made with patterned polyester webbing are perfect for heavy loads with high abrasion. Polyester has the best attributes of flat nylon (abrasion resistance) and heavyweight polypropylene (UV protection, water resistance).
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. The sublimation process may take an extra two to three days to fulfill your order. For more information on sublimation and custom designed straps, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 resistance. However, polypropylene does not have good abrasion resistance, so it is not recommended for use against rough edges.
