chain slings

Chain slings are robust and versatile slings that have a permanent place in both industry and construction. Relatively insensitive to sharp edges - and with the appropriate equipment, the length can be adjusted - even heavy and asymmetrical loads can be lifted and moved excellently with lifting chains.

We assemble sling chains and chain hangers grade 80, 100, 120 to measure for you.

You decide whether you want to use the confusion-free system with fork head (our standard) or the flexible solution with coupling element and eyelet.

Choose between 1- to 4-leg chain suspensions, with and without shortening options.

In the endless variants are wreath chains and sling chains - either in a modular system or of welded construction - to choose from.


Hole to hole - and it still holds.

Chain slings have to endure a lot.

You should therefore also use our inspection service with clean and legally compliant documentation - of course available online in your cloud.

Visual inspection is sufficient for a rhythm of 2 years.

After 3 years, a non-destructive check for freedom from cracks is mandatory.

Chain slings manufacturing

Selection criteria for chain slings

  • Determine the weight of the load to be lifted.
  • Determine the number of chain legs required depending on the existing attachment points and the load geometry.
  • Use the load capacity table to determine the nominal chain thickness, taking into account the angle of inclination.
  • Take into account any existing temperature influences.
  • Note the reduced load capacity with asymmetry.
  • Determine the chain length depending on its necessary usable length.
  • Make sure that the suspension links in the crane hook and the end fittings match the attachment points.
  • Check the selected components or the slings and components in use for their condition. (according to the applicable regulations e.g. DGUV 100-500)

Special instructions:

  • When designing your hangers or components, also take into account difficult operating conditions such as shock loads.
  • Chain slings and components must not be used above an operating temperature of 400 ° C. However, if your components are accidentally exposed to a temperature of over 400° C, contact the manufacturer immediately to check the components for their further usability.
  • In the case of chemical influences such as acids and bases, chain slings of grade 80, 100, 120 must not be used.
