CHAIN SLING SYSTEMS – GR. 80
Grade 8 Alloy Chain Slings are usually the best choice when working under rugged and hot weather conditions such as construction sites. They are durable, long lasting and easy to inspect. The main advantage with chain slings is that they can easily be repaired if any damaged component or link is found during inspection. We manufacture chain slings conforming to BS EN 818-4.
The distance between the crane hook and the load is known as the “Head Room”. If a specific head room is required, the “Reach” of the chain sling must increase as the angle between the legs increases as shown opposite.
The reach of a chain sling is the distance between bearing points of the upper and lower terminal fittings. This distance, commonly known as the “Bearing to Bearing” should be quoted when ordering slings. Shortening clutches may be fitted to a sling, making the reach adjustable, hence increasing the versatility of the sling.
Uniform Load Method of Rating(BS EN 818-4)
All general purpose slings should be rated by the uniform load method as shown in the table below.
|Single Leg||Endless||Two Leg||Three and Four Leg|
|90°||0° – 45°||45° – 60°||0° – 45°||45° – 60°|
