Types of chains
Lifting chains are the basis of chain slings, which we supply in 1, 2, 3 or 4 strands, in grade 80, 100 or stainless steel.
Other types of chains
We also have chains for forestry, transmission chains, balanced chains for hoists and slings specially designed for lifting wheelbarrows.
Grade 80 chains
The standard chains are grade 80. They are tested and delivered with a factory certificate certifying the tests with proof load and breaking load.
Advantages of grade 80 chains:
- Very fine-grained, non-ageing alloy steel
- High strength, the minimum breaking strength is 800N/mm²
- High surface hardness BRINEL HB 360
- Very elastic and impact resistant
- Guaranteed elongation at break of at least 17%
- Retains its strength and working load between -40°C and +200°C
Grade 100 chains
The combination of high quality raw material and precision heat treatment has resulted in a grade 100 range that offers a 25% higher working load limit (WLL) than grade 80. Although the components are more expensive in grade 100 than in grade 80, the final price can be lower, as a smaller diameter chain can be used for the same load.
Stainless steel chains
They are usually grade 60, sometimes grade 50.
Each chain or chain sling can be supplied with a number of accessories, such as hooks, shortening claws, links, meshes, shackles, swivels, rings or hooks.
Tests in our workshop
We are equipped with a 6-metre long horizontal traction bench with a capacity of 25 tonnes on which we can carry out tests.
