Quick and Effective Load Securement
Ensure you have a complete tool kit for the installation of TY-GARD®.
- Split pole
- Short wrench
- Long wrench
- Bonding Roller
- Tape Measure
Cut two lengths of TY-GARD® for each band required and one 5 ft length of Ty‑Patch®.
Please contact your TY-GARD® representative to help you determine the number of bands required for your load (HAZMAT and Railroad loads require additional bands).
Mark the container so the TY-GARD® bands can be installed at the same height and position. We recommend using a Tape Measure for accuracy. A mark at the beginning and end of the adhesive section helps ensure the bands are installed level.
We suggest that the adhesive start at least 1 ft (30 cm) back from the face of the load.
Peel the backing sheet from the TY-GARD® and apply the adhesive strip to the wall following the contours at the predetermined height / position.
Follow the same procedure on the opposite wall.
Use the bonding roller to firmly press the adhesive section of each band to the wall, remembering to follow the contours.
Any voids or gaps between the adhesive and the container wall should be fixed by reapplying the bonded section.
When completed, finish loading the cargo into the Container.
Pull the TY-GARD® strips across the face of the load overlapping ends at least 1 ft (15cm).
Cut excess if necessary.
Insert the overlapping sections through the split pole.
Place the small wrench on first with the long wrench on top, position the long handle flush against load.
Using only the small wrench apply tension to TY-GARD®. Making sure to not over-tension the material, proper application ensures the material is tight at the corners.
Remove the backing and place Ty‑Patch® across the tensioned barrier. Ensuring the Ty‑Patch® is placed evenly on both sides of the split pole.
Use the bonding roller to assure proper adhesion.
For Intermodal and Export loads: Use (2) strips of TY-Tape to secure the TY-GARD® band to the cargo.
