Warning!
Work load limits will be reduced when less than 90 degrees from horizontal. (See Efficiency Chart) Angles of less than 30 degrees are not to be used. Inspect before use. Additional requirements and safe operating practices are outlined in current OSHA, Federal Register Part 29, 1910.184 and ASME B30.9 c-2013. Death or injury can occur from improper use or maintenance!

Environmental Data

  • All chain slings are with a corrosion protective finish.
  • Heat resistance up to 550° F (without changing properties)
  • Do not use below -40° F

Grades of Chain

  • Grade 80 Alloy = Industry Standard for General Use
  • Grade 100 Alloy = 25% More Work Load Limits
  • Grade 50 = Stainless Steel for Corrosive Applications

NOTE: Only the above grades of chain are OSHA approved for overhead lifting.

How to Measure

Chain sling length is the combined reach of sling leg and of master, commonly referred to as bearing to bearing.

NOTE: The use of chain slings with a leg angle of less than 30° from horizontal is not recommended.
