Flat rack solutions
Flat racks are large metal frames to which an oversized piece of equipment can be fastened; the flat rack can then be securely fixed to the ocean-going vessel on which the equipment is to be transported. The challenge in properly flat racking is to make sure that a payload is firmly secured to the flat rack without damaging the item itself. Care must be given to precise centers of gravity when loading a flat rack and to ensuring that protruding elements of the payload are protected. Lashing needs to be secured to and channeled via parts of the payload that are strong enough to withstand the pressure as damage in transit can occur not only from the motion of the ship but also from the pressure of the lashing being applied against small or fragile protruding parts.
