Stainless Steel Lifting Slings
Stainless Steel Chain Slings are commonly used in areas such as the food industry, power plants, renewable energies, nautical engineering, water & waste industries and mechanical and plant engineering. Stainless is exceptionally easy to clean and has excellent resistance to many issues that would affect standard chain; this is all thanks to its chemical makeup of chromium, carbon, molybdenum in various quantities.
Stainless is a lot nicer to look at than standard steel too and although you may think that it doesn’t matter how a chain sling looks, sometimes it may; we have supplied stainless slings for lifting and showcasing large items at shows, such as the car show for lifting a new car to show it off, or perhaps a large piece or art.
The chain itself is available in six different diameters from 6mm up to 16mm and can be supplied in any length.
The working load limit
varies for each chain diameter and also how many legs you sling will have. So, as an example a 6mm single leg sling will have a WLL of 0.90 kg, whilst a 3 leg, 6mm will have a WLL of 1.85kg. Please see the specification table for all the details.
You should also bear in mind that whatever the WLL of your chain; you must ensure the fittings/components are of the same or higher WLL.
Stainless Steel Chain Sling Assemblies
We are able to assemble any size and length of chain with your preferred component to suit your requirements. Our range includes lifting chain, endless chain slings, master links, sub-assemblies, shorteners, hooks, connecting links and identification tags. We can also supply you with individual components if necessary.
Safety & Maintenance
Maintaining your chain is paramount to its safety whilst in use. Regular checks for any deviations from the norm should be looked for as any issue, no matter how small could potentially lead to load failure.
Whenever lifting slings are used, no matter what the type, safe slinging practices should always be adhered to. This includes using the charts detailing slinging angles and hitch types which all affect the safe working load of a chain sling.
