Just like wire rope slings, we carefully manufacture chain slings in our lifting and handling workshops in France according to your diameter, length and number of strands of your choice. Chain slings are differentiated by their steel grade corresponding to their breaking strength, so there are grade 80, grade 100 and grade 120 slings.
The 80 grade chain sling is the most commonly used and least expensive. If you want slings with maximum lifting capacity, grade 100 and 120 slings are the best choice. Grade 120 slings have smaller diameter links and weigh 30% less than a grade 80 sling.
How to choose a chain sling?
To choose the right chain sling for your operation, you need to :
Know the type of chain sling you want according to its attachment points: 1 strand, 2 strands, 3 or 4 strands.
Know the maximum working load required to lift the load
Choose the type of hook or chain slings accessories to be fitted to the chain sling
Know the total working length of the lifting sling
You can also choose to add a shortening hook to your chain slings which allows you to adapt the length of the sling to your needs.
Our chain slings all have an identification plate with the CMU, the CE mark and the manufacturer's mark.
To avoid any risk of accident, please check your chain slings regularly by monitoring the condition of the links. If a link is deformed, cracked or has an elongation of more than 5%, we strongly advise you not to use your sling. We are able to inspect your chain slings in our workshop, please contact our inspection and repair department.
