Special 7 class sewing machines had to be used to go through
the layers of straps used in the harness manufacturing.
Sewing machines strong enough to go through 20 gauge steel.
The tie-down straps with ratchets that connect to the
harness are high breaking strength. We use special wire
hooks with keepers so that they don’t slip off in hurricane
Specialty made ratchet straps can be ordered in different
breaking strength as needed from 1,000 to 20,000 lbs.
Custom straps with loops on both ends can be ordered, straps
that go over the home or building roof. These straps will be
used for homes or buildings that don’t have shingles or
tiles to protect! These straps can also be used for RVs,
boats, planes, cars, signs, sheds, personal property, car
ports, etc. Straps can be ordered from 1 ton to 50 tons
We use anchors for the harness that are heavy duty. The eye
steel anchors set in wet concrete 3 to 4 feet deep,
depending on soil type and size of the eye anchor.
The other anchor we use is for concrete slabs that the home
or building has already on property. That anchor is a D-Ring
with steel plate that is 11,000 to 16,000 lbs. breaking
strength that is drilled with concrete bolts to the concrete
The straps for the harness comes with a special waterproof
sealant that penetrates the fibers and thread of the straps
that stops acid rain, UV, and sun and coats and protects the
polyester webbing for many years. Not just a waterproofing,
but a sealant and also can be used for concrete. The sealant
can be ordered separately also.
The harness has polyester straps that are stitched to the
mesh material to form a superior high tensile strength. The
standard harness has straps on both sides of the harness
that is 5 feet wide and the breaking strength is 24,000 lbs.
(12 tons) on one side of breaking strength, so together the
whole harness straps breaking strength would be 24 tons.
