Chain Slings & Components

Grade 8 & 10 lifting chains

Employing the use of grade eight and grade ten steel, the user can be assured that only the safest platforms are offered through our services. As we appreciate that there is no such concept as "one size fits all"  a number of selections are offered.

Currently, these lifting chains are available in models of up to four individual chains per sling. This will allow for more attachment points and therefore, higher levels of control. Additionally, we can also fit shortening grab hooks to each leg to adjust the chain length.

Chain brands

You can find lots of big brands represented across the different equipment categories on our site, and our chain  line up is no different.

Whether you are looking for components from Gunnebo, Thiele, Cartec or Pewag, you can take your pick from these and many other major names in the shop by brand category. This should give you confidence in the quality of the chain  and components you order from us.

On this page you will find our own Lifting Gear Direct chain slings which are made up to order to your needs.

Chain Sling Customisation options

Chain can be adapted with components and accessories to make your perfect slinging accessory.  All you need to do is ask us and we will endeavour to make up a suitable sling. You can choose from a single leg, double leg, 3 leg or 4 leg  set up as well as an endless chain. You can purchase them online with choices for the safe working load, length, end fitting and whether shortening grabs are required. If you can't see the exact specification you need then just give us a call. Bespoke chain slinging products can be made for you.

More Lifting Slings To Consider

Lifting Gear Direct has an extensive array of other  slings to consider if chain slings are not precisely what you are looking for.

Take our web slings, for example, which offer capacities of between 1 tonne and 10 tonnes. With a number of different hitching configurations achievable, you can create a safe and stable link to an anchor point which will not let you down during complex lifting tasks.

We also offer wear sleeves which can be used in conjunction with any of the lifting sling products we supply. This will improve the lifespan of the sling and also limit any abrasions it might cause to other materials it comes into contact with during use.

For lifting and cargo transport where a single use sling makes sense, our disposable one way slings are similarly effective and customisable, providing you with all the variety you need to hit deadlines.

Wire rope slings are another option to consider.
