Chain For Lifting - the Facts.

Chain slings themselves do not actually lift the load but provides a strong and safe means of connecting the load to the hoisting system.

The versatility of this sling type is due to the fact that they are available in different assemblies, endless, 1, 2, 3 or 4 leg options, each one can be used in different types of hitches, so there will usually be something suitable for the majority of loads that need to be lifted and moved. They can also be fitted with a wide variety of hooks and master links, such as open hooks or hook’s with safety catches etc. The type of sling needed and the type of hitch used will always be dependent on the type of load to be lifted.

Chain Sling Hitches

The 3 most popular types of hitches are the straight hitch, basket hitch and choke lift. Different hitches can be useful when lifting loads of different sizes and shapes.

A straight hitch is where the chain in vertically in line with the load hooks.  A choke hitch encompasses the load and hooks back into the chain. A basket hitch encompasses the load but hooks back into the master link.

Slinging angles and hitch types play an important part in the safety of a slung load; please refer to the charts for full information as the safe working load limit often needs to be reduced from the stated limit when the angle or hitch changes from the norm.

Chain Lifting Sling Safety

It is wise to remember that just 1 weak link is all it takes for the chain  and subsequently the lift to fail which could have serious consequences. Regular inspections by a qualified person can alleviate many problems and most UK companies will have their slings inspected every six months to ensure they are kept in tip top and safe condition.

Safe slinging practices should always be applied to all slinging operations.
