New Hatch Cover Support Pad Unveiled at SMM Hamburg

Press Release
Tuesday, September 04, 2012

Hatch Cover and RoRo-equipment specialist Cargo Care Solutions unveils its latest product development at Hamburg expo.

The UltraPad, a new type of polymer-based, self-lubricating hatch cover support pad has just received a type approval from Germanischer Lloyd in recognition of its low wear and low friction characteristics.

The UltraPad features an improved locking pin mechanism preventing loss of the pads. The very low friction rate means the UltraPad has a smooth sliding feature resulting in low noise operation.

UltraPad has the lowest wear rate available on today’s market, ensuring the pad has a longer lifetime.  Easy wear detection adds to the pad’s safety, making it easy to determine when it needs to be changed and therefore avoiding the damages which can occur to the hatch cover and coaming structure when a worn support pad is not replaced in time.

The UltraPad can be used as replacement for other traditional types of hatch cover support pads and is available in a range of sizes to meet customer’s needs.
