There are many types of Cargo Baskets in the market. From a non-class certified to a class certified cargo basket. What is the difference between a non-class and a class certified cargo basket?
First, a class certified cargo basket is fabricated by adhering to strict design and fabrication guidelines set forth by the class society. Examples of class society are DNV, LR, and ABS. A certificate will be issued for each of the cargo baskets once it has gone through a vigorous series of design review, fabrication review, Load Tests and MPI Tests.
A non-class certified cargo basket, on the other hand, is fabricated and designed based on the client's specification without going through any class certification approval. However, a client can also opt to request a Professional Engineer endorsement for the design of the cargo basket. Clients can also request for a Load Test and MPI Test to be carried out.
One of the questions we generally get is if we can provide any lifting equipment such as chains or slings. The answer is Yes. For a class certified cargo basket, it is a class requirement for each of the cargo basket to come with its own lifting equipment.
Generally, cargo baskets are made from Mild Steel which is then sandblasted and coated with marine grade paint. Nonetheless, we can also fabricate the cargo basket using Stainless Steel.
Can we customize the size of the cargo basket? Yes of course. For more information on customized cargo basket fabrication, please drop us an enquiry at firstname.lastname@example.org . Alternatively, give us a call at 62656706.
