US Cargo Control continues its product expansion initiatives, with the planned addition of several new tent straps to serve the tent rental industry. The bulk of the product additions include tent straps fitted with white zinc hardware. Ratchet covers and heavy duty hardware options, including a forged bullnose snap hook, are also new to the line-up of products.
Ken Duncan, US Cargo Control’s national accounts manager, says the company has traditionally offered tent straps with yellow zinc hardware, but the updated look of white zinc is gaining in popularity because it better complements party tents and other professional special event tents.
“The white zinc-finished hardware coordinates really well with a variety of rental tents; it’s a popular trend in the industry and we’re happy to be able to provide our customers with those options.”
Duncan says that while the number of choices of tent straps has increased, the company still offers custom strap options. Volume discounts and corporate pricing may be available as well.
“Even with the expanded in-stock selection, we’re still able to fulfill custom orders because we’re sewing and assembling our straps in-house,” said Duncan. “We’re particularly pleased to be able to offer heavier duty hardware like our bull nose snap ring that’s forged, making it much stronger than typical cast hooks.”
The new tent strap products are in response to US Cargo Control’s growing customer base in the rental industry. In October, the company joined the American Rental Association (ARA) to learn more about the industry and ensure the merchandise mix would accommodate industry needs. Duncan and US Cargo Control VP Operations, Tim Sanders, will be attending the ARA trade show in Orlando, Florida in February to showcase the new products.
