Chain slings are a type of lifting sling that is commonly used in various industries for lifting and moving heavy loads. These slings are made of steel chains and are known for their durability, strength, and resistance to abrasion, cutting, and impact.
Chain slings consist of a series of chain links, each connected to the other using different types of fittings, such as master links, clevis hooks, or grab hooks. These fittings allow the chain slings to be used in a variety of lifting applications and configurations, such as single-leg, double-leg, or multiple-leg slings.
Chain slings are often preferred over other types of slings, such as wire rope or synthetic webbing slings, because of their ability to withstand harsh environments and heavy loads. They are commonly used in construction, manufacturing, and shipping industries to lift and move heavy equipment, machinery, and materials.
Chain slings are available in different grades of chain, with each grade having different working load limits and strength characteristics. The most common grades of chain used in chain slings are Grade 80 and Grade 100 with Grade 100 being the strongest and most durable.
KITO’s chain slings (chain & fittings) are grade 100. There is no compromise in the build quality, ensuring that the load is as safe as ever!
The Grade 100 series of lifting chains VIS 200 comes with a breaking load of 1000 N/mm2.
Grade 100 offers the following range of solutions:
Advantages of Chain Slings over Wire Ropes and Webbing Slings
There are several advantages of chain slings over wire ropes and webbing slings, including:
One of the benefits of using chain slings is their flexibility. They can be used in a variety of configurations, including single-leg, double-leg, triple-leg, and quadruple-leg slings, depending on the specific lifting requirements. Additionally, chain slings can be easily adjusted to fit the load being lifted, providing greater versatility than other types of slings.
How to Use Chain Slings Safely
To use chain slings safely, it is essential to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and guidelines. Some general safety tips to keep in mind when using chain slings include:
Chain slings are a popular and reliable option for lifting and moving heavy loads in various industries. Their durability, strength, and flexibility make them a preferred choice for many lifting applications. They offer numerous advantages over wire ropes and webbing slings, including higher working load limits, increased resistance to abrasion and cutting, and longer lifespans. Additionally, they are more versatile and can be used in a wider range of applications. However, following proper safety procedures when using chain slings to prevent accidents and injuries is important. If you are in the market for lifting slings, be sure to consider KITO chain slings as a top option for your needs.
