Piling shackles are very much like a dee shackle though they have a much longer shank.
The longer shank is needed in order to anchor to a steel piling sheet some distance down from the top, a standard shackle is not long enough; for example on a standard 1 tonne dee shackle the inside length is around 49mm but on a piling shackle this measurement is 152mm long, as you can see there is quite a significant difference.
These piling shackles are commonly utilised on construction sites where piling is needed to stabilize ground levels.
These piling shackles have a type ‘A’ screw pin and are manufactured from grade 4 high tensile steel with a self coloured finish as standard.
The safety factor of these piling shackles is 5:1, meaning the minimum breaking load equals five times the standard working load limit for the shackle. This is the minimum load they can take before breaking may occur in the event of overloading.
Lifting Gear Direct is able to supply piling shackles with working load limits up to 5 tonne and with internal lengths up to 305mm long. EC declarations of conformity are always provided.
It is also possible to supply these piling shackles with a hot dip galvanized finish – on request.
