Recessed L-track is also commonly called flanged L-track due to its flange edge profile. This unique design is what allows the track to be installed in a recessed application, resulting in a smooth, flush surface for cargo to roll over easily.
This flush-surface benefit is what has made the track popular in the transportation industry for wheelchair tie-downs, and also makes it extremely useful for several other tie-down applications, including motorcycle trailers, utility trailers, van and delivery trucks, etc.
Please note: our recessed 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.
Our Flanged 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-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.
