Is cargo matting available in strips?
Yes! We can supply the matting in strips.
Can ABS West cut matting to specific tray sizes?

In practice, what's the coefficient of sliding friction value?
A value of 0.6μ should be the base for calculations (recommended by part 15 of VDI 2700).
REGUPOL cargo mats easily exceed minimum requirements by 15-50%, depending on the friction elements (the sliding friction coefficient of a friction increasing surface depends on the combination of materials involved, temperature, moisture etc.,).
By which institutions are REGUPOL cargo mats tested?
TüV Nord (German Technical Standards Authority), German BG Institute for Work Safety (BIA), the VDZ packaging engineering and service centre GmbH, Deutsche Bahn AG, IML Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics, DEKRA (German Motor Vehicle Inspection Association), TUL LOG (Society for Cargo Handling and Warehouse Logistics), ifV (Institute for Administrative Sciences).
Why do REGUPOL mats perform so well?
REGUPOL mats perform so well because of their high friction surface – FRICTION being one of the most important fundamentals of load restraint!
What's the load capacity of REGUPOL cargo mats?
REGUPOL 7210 LS Plus: 250 t/m² = 2.50 N/mm²
REGUPOL 9510 RHS Plus: 300 t/m² = 3.0 N/mm²
REGUPOL 1000 LSE: 630 t/m² = 6.30 N/mm²
How many times can REGUPOL cargo mats be used?
REGUPOL cargo Mats can be used repeatedly until they become split, torn or crushed; or come into contact with chemicals, oils or fuels. When these events happen, the mats have reached their discard status.
Is there a chance that REGUPOL mats could leave black stains or streaks on cargo?
Can REGUPOL cargo mats be cleaned?
Yes! the mats can be cleaned by:
- shaking off loose dirt
- pressure cleaning (if required)
What kind of ambient conditions can the mats handle?
All REGUPOL cargo mats can handle challenging conditions such as extreme temperatures (-40 °C to +120 °C) UV light, and moisture. Our toughest mat is LSE 1000.
