3. Load securing system
The topic of load securing is paramount at Hüffermann since many years. Hüffermann has new vehicle developments tested by TÜV and DEKRA for load securing before they go into series production. The load securing requirements for transporting skip containers are diverse. Different container sizes with symmetrical or asymmetrical design, which have different widths and lengths for the contact surfaces, make this diversity a necessity. Special containers with subframes have other requirements.
The skip troughs are fastened on the trailer with combined load securing. The skip troughs are secured against sliding in the direction of travel and to the sides with adjustable stops. The containers are locked to the rear on the rear container mounting block with transverse lashing. The load is lashed with 2 tensioning chains, which are fastened with a special self-locking oval eye on the rear container mounting block and lashed down at a lashing angle of 35° - 60°. A chain shortener makes handling easier.
Operation: Pull the centring out of its guide sleeve and position it at the desired container width by turning. Spring force slides the centring into the desired centring position. Its 8-way adjustment option also allows you to set centring positions outside of standard container widths and comply with the maximum lateral play required by law.
Safety-Fix is based on ratchet tensioners that are fastened on both sides. After installing the chains, the driver uses them to pull the container up to the stops. Afterwards, the driver only needs to tension one chain on each vehicle side at a lashing angle of 35° to 60° to secure the container in the direction of travel with a positive-locking fit.
This securing system is a time-saving load securing system, which locks the skip containers on the tilt bearing according to DIN 30720 and 30720-1. The Multi-Fix compensates for differences in dimension on slightly bent tilt bearings and is pressed in a neutral position when transporting hooklift containers (Flex-Carrier). It is possible to transport swap compactors or skip containers with subframes.
Hitches are configured according to the towing vehicle. Front-loaded trailers are usually equipped with a lowering device or, for central axle trailers, with a telescopic tow bar.

Centre pillar drawbars
