Lifting Chain SlingsMark
Look in every crane rigging box or workshop and you will see multiple sets of chain slings. Most riggers use the term ‘lifting chains’ or ‘chain sets’ when describing these, and are one of the most common types of lifting sling.
The most common chain slings that LiftQuip Australia manufacture is still Grade 80 chain slings, but the number of Grade 100 chain slings made is fast catching up. Customers are liking the 25% increase in working load limit per the same diameter of chain. This equates to better manual handling for the operator as well as lowering the overall lift weight on the crane.
Grade 120 chain slings are commonly available in sizes up to 16mm, however the number of these sold is not close to the levels of Grade 100 and Grade 80 slings.
All slings manufactured follow a rigorous process. This includes monitoring of what batch the chain and components are used to ensure full traceability. Every chain sling is tested before it leaves the workshop, ensuring that compliance to Australian Standard AS3775.1 and 2 is achieved.
LiftQuip can also help out with storage solutions for chains and other lifting equipment, offering the range of Sling Rakz systems.
