RUD ICE Chain Slings are Grade 120 and are 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 100.
Before you decide on a chain lifting configuration, ask yourself:
Grade 120 Hooks offers a considerable 30% reduction in weight than Grade 80 hooks, using less material due to its light construction and easier handling.
Grade 120 Chains possess a 60% higher breaking force than Grade 80 chains, is extremely robust, tough and resilient to sharp and rough edges due to the increased strength of the chains.
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.
RUD takes pride in ensuring that our engineered solutions, manufacturing processes and proof loading facilities comply with recognised standards.
All RUD ICE sling assemblies are proof loaded at our facilities in Brisbane - meaning you have peace of mind knowing that the sling is safe and able to perform the job it’s designed for - lifting safely.
