Grade 8 chain fittings are specifically designed for lifting applications, able to stretch and elongate to absorb shock loads. Grade 8 fittings have a working load limit on a single leg sling ranging from 1.5t to 31.5t, and while there are stronger fittings these are great for most applications. Here at UK Lifting Equipment we are delighted to stock grade 8 chain fittings for our customers to aid with their lifting.
We stock an enormous variety of chain fittings which are suitable for accurately lifting almost any individual load. These Duke lifting points include lifting hooks, master links and connectors, grab hooks and clutches. Some of our Grade 8 chain fittings come with swivel eye bolts for lifting awkward loads which need to be able to turn safely in mid-air.
In addition to our standard Grade 8 chain fittings we also stock weld on hooks and a weld-on pivoting D-link with spring. All of our chain fittings are fully proof tested before sale and meet all the relevant health and safety requirements.
Our chain fittings can be purchased in a variety of sizes. The standard size is often around 7 or 8mm although some of our fittings can be purchased in sizes up to 32mm, albeit for an added price. In the case of our weld on hooks, the size of these is determined by tonnage with the standard being 2T.
