Things to consider when choosing your chain sling


Always consider your method of lifting. 

How you intend to sling the load?

Will you use designated lifting points or does your lift plan desire a bespoke lift solution. We're here to help if you wish to discuss.

How many legs you will you need?

With  shortening grabs, a four leg chain can cover a multitude of applications, however always considering the SWL decrease when using less legs.

What Grade chain would benefit your operations?

Grade 10 & 12  will offer durability and further weight reductions.

In some instances, weight can be critical, especially on controlled weight environments

Use the sling guide to help you find the appropriate application for your lift plan. 


Higher grades of chain offer increased load capacity however can be significantly more expensive.  In our experience, higher grade chains commonly pass their inspections year on year.

Decide the length of the chain sling.  The option to add shortening clutches or grabs can provide a sling to manage all centre of gravities and various load dimensions.

Finally with all the above considered, take a look at the many different components that can be fitted to your chain.  If you're unsure, please call us and we will be happy to discuss the best items for your configuration.
