Chain Sling:

We also supply standard sling assemblies according customer request
Components, such as master links and hooks, should have at least the same working load limit (rated capacity) as the chain with which they are used. If not, the sling shall be rated to the capacity of the weakest component.

How to Order Chain Slings

  1. Determine the maximum load to be lifted.
  2. Choose the proper type of chain sling (single, double, etc.) dictated by the size, shape and weight of the load.
  3. Estimate the approximate angle between a leg of the sling and the load during operation.
  4. Select the proper attachments (hooks and master links) for your chain sling.
  5. Determine the overall length from bearing point on master link to bearing point on attachment. 
  6. Refer to the Working Load Limit Chart and to your predetermined angle of the type sling you have selected.
  7. Choose the chain size which meets your requirements.
  8. When entering your order be sure you give complete information as

to the size, reach and attachments required.

Note: Angle to the load on multiple leg slings will be 60° or greater as

long as the distance between lifting eyes of load is not greater than reach

shown on identification tag.
