Flush Elephant Foot Lashing Point

About product

The Flush Elephant Foot Lashing Point is a specific type of lashing point designed for container ships. It consists of a base and a cover plate that is securely attached to the base. The base features a cross-shaped bottom groove, while the cover plate is also cross-shaped.

The cover plate is equipped with cross-shaped through-holes that align with the cross-shaped bottom groove of the lashing point. This allows for a connection between the cover plate and the base, forming a secure lashing point. The through-holes are designed in a cross shape, and within this shape, circular holes are included.

Furthermore, the circular holes extend outward, creating strip-shaped holes that extend from the center of the cross shape towards its edges. These strip-shaped holes provide additional options for securing lashing equipment. Additionally, on the strip-shaped holes, there are arc-shaped holes incorporated, further enhancing the flexibility and adaptability of the lashing point.

The Flush Elephant Foot Lashing Point offers a versatile and reliable means of securing cargo on container ships. It allows for various lashing configurations and ensures the stability and safety of the cargo during transportation at sea.

Product Detail

When transporting containers, vehicles, or tanks by sea, it is common to employ fixed-point lashing to prevent movement during turbulent weather or rough sea conditions. Typically, this involves using chains to connect lashing points, commonly referred to as “elephant feet,” and securing them within grooves on a base. However, existing lashing devices are often simplistic and lack the necessary flexibility to effectively secure the elephant feet from various angles. Consequently, inadequate lashing may compromise the transportation process.

To address these limitations and cater specifically to RoRo vessels, the Flush Elephant Foot Lashing Point is proposed. This innovative lashing mechanism offers a solution that allows for flexible and secure fastening of the elephant feet. The Flush Elephant Foot Lashing Point ensures a strong and reliable lashing system that can withstand the challenges of sea transportation. Its design allows for multi-directional fixation, providing enhanced stability and minimizing the risk of cargo movement. With its user-friendly operation and excellent performance, the Flush Elephant Foot Lashing Point significantly improves the efficiency and safety of cargo transportation on RoRo vessels.

The Advantage Of Flush Elephant Foot Lashing Point

The Flush Elephant Foot Lashing Point offers several advantages when used in RoRo vessel lashing operations:

  • Enhanced Security: The lashing point provides a secure and reliable fastening method for elephant feet, ensuring that cargo remains stable even under challenging sea conditions.
  • Flexible Fastening: The design allows for flexible and multi-directional fixation of the elephant feet. This versatility ensures that the lashing is effective from various angles, minimizing the risk of cargo movement.
  • Simple Operation: The lashing process is straightforward, involving inserting the elephant foot through circular holes and pulling the chain to position it within the strip-shaped groove. This simplicity makes the lashing operation efficient and user-friendly.
  • Improved Stability: The inclined surfaces of the lifting blocks and the recessed bottom of the strip-shaped groove provide a secure fit for the elephant foot. This alignment ensures that the foot remains firmly fixed in place, enhancing overall cargo stability.
  • Automation Capability: The inclusion of a photoelectric sensor on the inclined surface of the second lifting block enables automated control of the lashing process. The sensor detects the movement of the elephant foot and triggers the corresponding cylinder, streamlining the lashing operation.
