AAR (the Association of American Railroads) has taken responsibility to oversee and approve testing, standards and requirements related to railcar loading and transit methodology.
When using rubber friction mats and strapping for load securement, it is critically important that both the product and the load securement pattern be approved by the AAR. If not, extensive damage may occur and the shipper can be held responsible for load adjustments, delivery delays and/or accidents.
Allegheny Industrial Associates has more AAR loading approvals than any other manufacturer. For a partial list, see the AAR Approvals download.
