Airline Track, also known as L-Track or Logistic Track is a versatile tie-down system used to secure a range of cargo including items such as motorcycles, ATVs, utility tractors, and much more. 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 Aircraft Style L-Track is our strongest style of L-Track and is a great choice if you need something with a little more strength than our standard aluminum L-Track. This cargo track is made from a high-quality grade 6351 aluminum and is thicker and wider than other similar airline track styles. Although this tie-down track is wider and thicker than other styles, it still has a low profile that’s ideal for pickup truck beds, small trailers, and other tight spaces.https://www.uscargocontrol.com/shop/Enclosed-Trailer-Accessories/Airline-Straps-Hardware/Aircraft-Style-Seat-L-Track
Aircraft Style L-Track gets its name from use in the airline industry. The track is installed on the floor of the aircraft, with the seats attaching to the track rather than the aircraft itself. This allows for secure attachment of the seats, but also the option of easily moving or removing the seats quickly. Just simply remove the seats from the track and re-position as needed.
It's important to note that while many heavier-duty airline tracks for tie-downs are stronger than typical tie-downs, not all are certified by the FAA for use in the airline industry as seat track; it should be used only as intended in tie-down applications.
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-Trackis 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 Filler stripsa> are great for filling in the track where it's not in use, to keep dirt, sand, etc. out. Our entire selection of fittings and other add-on components can be found on our Stud Fittings and Accessories page.
