WSTDA Releases Newly Revised Standards
WSTDA recently released the
newly-revised Recommended Standard Specification for
Synthetic Sewing Threads for Slings and Tie Downs
(WSTDA-TH-1). This standard was first published in 1999.
Also completed recently was the Recommended Standard
Specification for Winches Used with Synthetic Web Tie Downs
(WSTDA-T-3). This standard was first published in 1998.
All members should have received complimentary copies of the
Thread Standard and will be receiving a complimentary copy
of the Winch Standard in the coming weeks.
Many thanks to WSTDAs Thread Ad Hoc Committee for the time
and energy spent on revising TH-1; and to the Tie Down
Committee and their Winch Standard Ad Hoc Committee for
countless hours spent on revising T-3.
