The dee design means that they can only handle inline lifting, but the upside is that they are a little stronger than an equivalent stainless steel bow shackle. Let us take you through the design, features and advantages of these shackles, before providing a few alternative options.
These shackles are perfect for more permanent types of lifting operations and are commonly used in marine and off-shore environments due to their good corrosion resistance, as well as general lifting operations.
They are manufactured with stainless steel materials to EN10088 1.4404 (316L) and come in a polished finish. This means that if they get clogged with dirt, smattered with debris or smeared with unwanted substances, you can quickly clean this off and leave them looking good as new in an instant. This gives them a long life as well as an eye-catching attractiveness, which may be relevant if these shackles are going to be on show in a high traffic location.
Safety Factor: MBL = 6 x WLL - this equates to the minimum weight at which the shackle may break at 6 times the normal working load limits, for example a shackle with a working load limit of 500kg will not break until it is overloaded by 6 x this figure = 3000kg, however this does not mean you can repeatedly overload the shackles, this figure is a built in safety precaution.
Lifting Gear Direct can supply these stainless steel lifting shackles - dee type with safety bolt in a wide range of WLL's up to 5000kg and incremental dimensions which relate to the size chosen.
