The Web Sling and Tie Down Association (WSTDA) recently released guidance on disinfecting synthetic slings and tie-downs to prevent the transmission of COVID-19.

In general, it is not recommended that web slings and tie-downs be washed or disinfected as it can lead to a loss of strength. Many chemicals and cleaners commonly used to disinfect other inanimate household objects could have adverse effects on synthetic slings and tie-downs.

We understand there are a lot of questions and unknowns when it comes to the Coronavirus pandemic and encourage our customers to read the full release from the WSTDA on their website.

At US Cargo Control, we care about our customers and getting them what they want, when they need it. If you have any questions about our products, give our team a call at 866-444-9990.

Stay safe everyone!
