Chain Slings & Accessories

As standard, Grade 8 lifting slings are supplied but Grade 10 slings and products are available.

These are available in various configurations to be used for general lifting purposes either on site, maintenance workshops and storage facilities.

Lifting capacities are shown in the working load limits chart below.

If used correctly our slings offer a long service life with a high degree of safety.

Working load limits in tonnes (WLL)

The working load limits stated on the EC Declaration of Conformity supplied with every chain sling have been determined on the basis that the loading of the chain sling is symmetrical (multi leg slings) and there are no particular hazardous conditions.

Periodic Thorough Examination

Throughout the life of the chain sling it is recommended that an examination as per the requirements of Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) takes place. This can be as part of an agreed written plan agreed between a competent person and the owner of the sling.
