When you select our stainless steel bow shackles with a safety bolt included, you get the same load-bearing benefits of our high tensile units, but with that extra peace of mind that cannot be guaranteed with a screw pin fitting. As well as being more secure and reliable, these shackles offer a decent range of load limits and dimensions. They can take loads at an angle, rather than just being fit for inline use.
Stainless steel shackles offer a corrosion resistance much higher than standard steel shackles; Our stainless steel lifting shackles - bow with safety bolt are completely manufactured - including bolt, nut and pin, in stainless steel to EN10088-1.4404 = 316L. They come with a polished finish.
The polished exterior is not just for show, as it has practical applications to bring to the table. For a start it streamlines the maintenance of these shackles, since any unsightly marks or built-up grime can be wiped away with a quick swipe. Furthermore, since the metal will not corrode quickly, the lifespan of these shackles will be extended further than you might expect.
The safety bolt incorporates the safety cotter pin through the bolt - located after the nut has been placed; this is one of the safest types of lifting shackle and work really well in semi-permanent lifting operations.
Loading at angles is possible with a bow type shackle with reductions to the working load limit (see our bow shackles page here)
These shackles possess good safety factors at 6:1, MBL (minimum breaking load) = 6 x WLL.
Shackles are available with WLL up to 4500kg and are supplied with an EC declaration of conformity. The most compact of the range has a capacity of 280kg, so if you are looking for a specific size and specification of stainless steel bow shackle with safety bolt, cast your eyes over the table of technical data below to identify the right part.
