What are E Track Rail Systems

E Track Rail Systems were designed to help secure cargo by utilizing the strength of the walls and the flooring of enclosed trailers, dry vans, and moving vans to keep your cargo snug during transportation. E Track Rails can be found in either horizontal E Track Rails or Vertical E Track Rails and are either horizontally or vertically.

E Track Rails are made from 12 gauge steel and can be purchased in either a black or galvanized finish depending on personal preference for your application needs. The rails are made from high-strength steel with a 50,000 lbs PSI minimum yield and work with either E-Track or A-Track Straps.

Once E Track rails are installed into either the flooring or walls of the trailer it provides a variety of different securement locations along the rails to provide you with ultimate flexibility and versatility for your cargo securement. E-Track Rails can use a variety of e-track accessories from cargo bars, e-track tie-down straps, rope tie-offs, and more.

E Track Load Bars – E Track Load Bars are designed to help provide load stabilization during transit. During transit sudden lane changes, a sudden brake, rapid acceleration, or a motorist cutting you off can cause the cargo to shift. This makes a hazardous situation for those who are unloading the truck as the cargo otherwise could be at risk of tipping over or falling out of the rear of the truck when the dock doors are opened.

E Track Cargo Bars come in many different strengths and lengths to help provide ultimate load stabilization in enclosed trailers, dry vans, moving vans, box trucks, and more while on the road. We also offer hoop bars that provide more surface area to ensure that pallets of cargo that are stacked or top heavy cargo are at risk during transit.
