These shackles may look like any other typical bow shackle but they are not – they have a specially designed bevelling to the round part of the shank; this special shaped area enlarges the contact area for the sling which reduces wear and stress to the webbing. They can also be called a sling saving shackle.
These green pin sling shackles – bow type are perfect for use with soft round slings as the smoother, bigger contact area enlarges the load bearing surface and helps to reduce the friction/wear to the webbing materials which in turn will extent the working life of your sling.
A further benefit of these shackles is that they can be utilized in more extreme temperature ranges, from -20 up to +200 degrees C. This is ideal for many industries, environments and climates of all kinds.
The shank and the pin are made from high tensile steel, quenched and tempered to grade 8; the shank/body is painted white and the pin is green.
The 5:1 safety factor provides good reliability with the minimum breaking load = 5 x WLL.
We can supply these sling shackles with working load limits up to 1500 tonnes thanks to the larger load bearing surface, please refer to the table below for full technical details, please note – plus 5% forging tolerance on the inside width and length. These heavy-duty shackles start off with a load limit of seven tonnes, so even the most compact unit is still sturdy and strong.
