Enter the lashing capacity rating in daN into the calculator to estimate the total lashing capacity. This is an estimation and should be used for educational purposes only. Refer to your lashing manufacturer for true data.

Lashing Capacity Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Lashing Capacity.

LC = LR * 2

  • Where LC is the lashing capacity (kg)
  • LR is the lashing rating (daN) (decaNewtons)

To calculate the lashing capacity, multiply the lashing rating in deca-Newtons by 2.

What is a Lashing Capacity?


A lashing capacity is defined as the maximum weight a particular lashing can hold without failing.

How to Calculate Lashing Capacity?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate Lashing Capacity.

First, determine the lashing rating. In this example, the lashing is rated for 5000 dAN.

Next, the final and last step is to use the formula above to calculate the lashing capacity.

LC = LR * 2

LC = 5000 * 2

LC = 10000 kg
