Top 5 lifting and lashing points from RUD

We have compiled a list of the top 5 lifting and lashing points below:

VLBG-PLUS

The RUD VLBG-PLUS Load Ring comes in standard and variable bolt lengths. VLBG-PLUS has a safety factor of 4:1 and comes fully tested and certified by DGUV. It is designed for use in extreme temperatures ranging from -40˚C up to 100˚C and maximum temperature of 350˚C. 

The advantages of VLBG-PLUS:

  • Rotating combination head with RUD ICE® bolt
  • ICE® bolt is made from patented steel with corrosion protection
  • Up to 45% higher WLL capacity (M8 - M30)
  • Rotates 360° and pivots 180°
  • Complies with AS 3776:2015 and EN 1677-1

VLBS LOAD RING

The VLBS LOAD RING comes with or without an internal holding spring. It is ideal for multi-directional loading with a safety factor of 4:1 and comes fully tested and approved by DGUV.

The advantages of VLBS LOAD RING:

  • Easy weld-on design
  • Forged alloy steel load ring
  • Comprehensive range of WLL (1.5 ton - 16 ton)
  • Suspension ring pivots 180° and is adjustable in force direction
  • Suitable for extreme low temperature of down to -45°C

VRS-F STARPOINT

The VRS-F STARPOINT rotates in the direction of the load. Available in several bolt lengths with corresponding washers and crack detected lock nuts in different threads.

The advantages of VRS-F STARPOINT:

  • Comprehensive range of WLL (0.5 ton - 32 ton)
  • Rotates 360°
  • ICE® bolt is made from patented steel with corrosion protection
  • Higher WLL than DIN 580 eye bolt
  • Unique key design for easy installation and removal
  • Ideal for both axials and angular loading
  • Stamped with WLL F2

    ABA WELD-ON LUG

    The ABA comes in both LIFTING POINT and LASHING POINT options which are ideal for construction projects that have constant rotary motion, strong vibrations and shocks. ABA has a safety factor of 4:1 and comes fully tested and approved by DGUV.

    The advantages of ABA WELD-ON LUG:

    • Comprehensive range of WLL (0.8 ton - 31.5 ton)
    • Patented wear indicators
    • Circular fillet weld-on design
    • Safer alternative to current pad eye lifting devices
    • Manufactured in general accordance with AS 3776:2015 and EN 1677-1

    ACP-TURNADO

    The RUD ACP-TURNADO with a unique spring mechanism ensures higher safety by automatically rotating in the direction of force transmission. This eliminates the risk of a sudden release of the ring from this position in the direction of force and the resulting jerky dropping of the load - which endangers the load, load handling equipment and lifting system.

    The advantages of ACP-TURNADO:

    • Comprehensive range of WLL (1.35 ton - 16 ton)
    • Turns in direction of optimal force transmission
    • Rotates 360° and pivots 180°
    • ICE® bolt technology
    • Low profile design
    • No kinking of the hook
    • Unique RUD spring mechanism

    RUD has a long pedigree of manufacturing chains for over 140 years including 40 years in lifting technology and load securing. When it comes to lifting, securing, or lashing, the world looks to RUD which offers over 700 different lifting and lashing points for all requirements across mining, quarries, transport, and infrastructure.

    All RUD lifting and load securing products are made in Germany. Many of the standards used in the lifting and load securing industry originated from RUD, such as the inspection stamp H1 for high strength chains in 1953, approval for Grade 8 (H1-8) in 1972 and approval for Grade 12 (D1-12) for round steel chains in 2007.
