Cargo Restraint Straps - Design Criteria and Testing Methods

Standard:
Scope:

This Standard aims at identifying the design criteria and testing methods adequate to guarantee the ultimate load and operational dependability of cargo restraint strap assemblies with a typical 22,250 N (5,000 lbf) rated ultimate tension load capability, as used by the airline industry in order to restrain on board civil transport aircraft during flight: a. cargo loaded and tied down onto airworthiness certified air cargo pallets, themselves restrained into aircraft lower deck or main/upper deck cargo systems and meeting the requirements of NAS 3610 or AS36100, or b. non-unitized individual pieces of cargo, or pieces of, cargo placed onto an unrestrained ( "floating ") pallet into either lower deck or main deck containerized cargo compartments of an aircraft.

Rationale:

FAA Safety Alert for Operators (SAFO) 16007 prohibited use of cargo straps with D6-type end fittings. Decision was made by AGE-2A subcommitee at October 2016 meeting to open a project to revise AS5385C accordingly.
