Below you will find a PDF document with four pages for your records.
For more information regarding each page, read below:
Page 1: This is a letter from Bill Geise, Engineering Director at our parent company, Wastequip. It is regarding the placement of the Locks at 3 meters (10 ft.) from the rear of the container. He cites ANSI standard Z245.1-1999, Section 220.127.116.11.
Pages 2 & 3: These are the actual ANSI standards, with asterisks on specific sections. The beginning of Section 18.104.22.168, talks about an integral securement system, which is exactly what the Box Locks are. Subsection a) talks about the amount of movement (2 ¾”) that is allowed in any direction (forward, rearward, lateral and vertical) as specified in Section 22.214.171.124. Subsection d) speaks of the placement of this integral device in relationship to the container; 3 meters (10 ft.) from the rear of the container. It also goes on to say that there must be “at least two sets of mating devices if located on the side rails.”
Page 4: Here you will find a copy of the Federal Standard 49CFR393.134. This standard talks about securement of a roll-on/roll-off container. In subsection b) it states that any container that is “not equipped with an integral securement system must be: (4) installed no more than two meters (6’ 7”) from the rear of the container.” Because our Locks are integral with the hoist and truck, we do not fall under this rule. We do fall under the ANSI specs.
