ICE Grade 120

ICE stands for Innovative Chain Evolution.
RUD ICE chain slings are Grade 120 and represent an advanced development in the lifting means segment.
Quality RUD ICE components stand out due to their colour- ICE-pink (traffic purple).

ICE-Round steel chains are manufactured and tempered with a patented material. They have a high hardness and are insensitive to hydrogen embrittlement like Grade 10.

How do you select the right chain sling?

Before a decision is made regarding a chain lifting configuration, ask yourself:

  • What is the maximum weight of the loads to be lifted?
  • What height do I have available and what is the maximum lifting means length?
  • What working environments is the sling to be used in (temperature, rough environment, handling space).

The GR120 V GR80 Comparison

Grade 120 offers a considerable 30% reduction in weight than Grade 80 hooks, using less material due to its light construction & easier handling.

It possesses a 60% higher breaking force than grade 80 chains, is extremely robust, tough and resilient to sharp and rough edges due to the chains increased strength.

What this means is that an ICE lifting or lashing chain- no matter the nominal thickness – can replace a Grade 80 chain of the next-higher nominal thickness.

The reduction in weight of more than 30% is a major safety advantage.
