Angled L-Track differs from standard L-Track in the design of the edges. While standard L-Track has a rectangular, squared-off profile, angled airline track has sloped edges. These sloped edges make it easier to roll cargo across the track. It was originally used for wheelchair tie-downs, and the sloped design has gained popularity for use in securing motorcycles, ATVs, delivery carts, and other wheeled cargo.
Please note: our angled L-track is designed for recreational and cargo control use; it is not certified for official wheelchair restraint use in buses, vans, and other transport vehicles.
L-Track, also known as Logistic Track or Airline Track is a versatile tie-down system used to secure a range of cargo. Install L-Track Tie-Down Tracks in your pickup truck, utility trailer, or van to create versatile and secure tie-down points that are easily adjusted to suit the specific vehicle or cargo you are transporting.
Our angled L-track tie down rails are available in 12” and 96” lengths, but can be cut to size to fit your tie-down needs. Made from a strong and durable grade 6061-T6 aluminum for superior corrosion resistance, our angled tie-down track is manufactured with pre-drilled holes for easy installation.
Types of L-Track:
Standard L-Track is our most popular style of L-Track because of its versatility to secure a wide-range of cargo. It's available in a wide range of sizes and colors, so it's easy to customize your airline track system to meet your needs. It is suitable for both surface and flush-mounted installations.
Aircraft Style L-Track
Aircraft Style L-Track features a square profile, similar to our Standard L-Track, but is made from a stronger, high-quality grade 6351 for applications requiring extra strength than regular aluminum L-Track.
Angled L-Track features sloped edges, making it easier to roll items such as motorcycles, ATVs, utility carts, and other wheeled-objects over the tie-down track. Angled L-Track is for surface mounted applications.
Recessed L-Track is also known as Flanged L-Track and is designed for flush-mount installations. This flush-surface benefit makes it ideal for applications where wheeled-items are rolled over the track.
One of the things that makes L-Track so versatile is the wide range of fittings and accessories made to go with it. Most fittings are designed to be placed at any point along the track to create an instant and secure tie-down point. Track end caps and filler strips are great for filling in the track where it's not in use, to keep dirt and sand out, and to further reduce any bumps when moving across the surface (this is why it's also commonly known as "surface angled track" or "surface L-track" in the industry).
