Chain Slings & Lifting Chains

Chain Slings & Lifting Chains Supplied by Lifting Gear Experts; Lifting Equipment Store.

Our range features super competitively priced chain slings and lifting chains from Kito Weissenfels, Pewag, Crosby, Kuplex, Cartec and Linx which are all regarded as top chain makers.
Pewag Grade 10 Premium Chain Slings are up to 36% lighter than previous models, creating a more durable easy-to-use sling for intense lifting without compromising on safety, quality or strength. The grade 10 chains feature 25% higher capacity than grade 8 chains, this is how the lighter sling is achieved.

  • An attractive price to performance ration, due to the small price difference compared to grade 8 chains.
  • One dimension smaller than grade 8 chains for many load ranges- excellent value.
  • All links and components are easily identified with relevant markings. Traceability as all components are coded.
  • High wear resistance- longer life span.
  • Distinctive and individual identity tags to avoid confusion with grade 8 chains.
  • Orange powder coated finish creates a high viability sling for ideal visual identification.
  • Fast and simple assembly with patented shortening element.
  • Safety feature on shortening element helps avoid danger through improperly shortened slings.
  • Fewer components are used on grade 10 chains (as opposed to grade 8) enabling quicker daily/annual inspections.
  • Compatible with grade 8 range, used slings are easy to repair.
  • Grab hooks available with 100% load capacity- shortening sling does not require a reduction in load caused by effect of hook.
  • Manufactured to ISO 9001 quality standards.
  • Ex stock availability of spares and spare parts.
  • EN 1677-1,-2,-3,-4
  • Capacities from 800kg-67,000kg (0.8Ton-67 Ton)

Grade 80 Lifting Chain Assemblies are known as the industry standard when it comes to crane and hoist chains, offering an impressive price to performance ratio, these alloy quenched and tempered chains and components are used frequently in construction and industrial applications, Grade 80 assemblies are extremely robust and offer a working load limit up to 32tonnes spread over four legs. Manufactured to last, although we can appreciate unintentional damages do occur and therefore we stock a full range of G80 components and connectors from hooks and safety catches to masterlinks and shorteners.

Crane Chains, in general, can be used in a variety of different configurations to sling particular loads and in some cases even increase the capacity of an assembly. For example; our G80 single leg 7mm if used in a straight 90-degree angle achieves a working load limit of 1.50tonnes, when that same chain is used in a basket configuration you achieve 2.12tonnes. 

Health & Safety Recommendations With Hoist Chains:

  • Always be sure to inspect the sling before each use for any signs of damages or overloading. Tip; a great way to check for individual leg stretching/overload is to hang the sling vertically, if each leg is exactly the same length and there are no evident stretches to the chain then the chances are there has been no overload, of course in the event of a suspected misuse it is always recommended to seek professional advice and have your chains inspected by ourselves or your local expert
  • Ensure chain legs are not twisted- this can dramatically affect the working load limit and is classed as misuse
  • Check that the load or connection sits in the centre of the hook and never on the tip
  • Never sling over the maximum working load limit
  • Never load with a convergence angle over 120-degrees
  • Never shock-load your chains
  • Never use chains outside of their temperature ranges
