• Beaver Grade 100

Grade 100 lifting chain is fast becoming the most common chain used for chain slings for several reasons.

Aside from the growing availability and affordability of Grade 100 lifting chain and fittings, Grade 100 chain slings offer multiple advantages over traditional Grade 80 product, and with new innovations in manufacturing technology some Grade 100 products are even more advanced.

One of the main benefits of using Grade 100 lifting chain is its higher strength-to-weight ratio compared to Grade 80 chains of the same size and weight.

In fact, Grade 100 provides the user a 25% higher working load limit (WLL) than Grade 80 chains. This means that a worker can lift a load that is 25% heavier before they need to select the next size of chain, thereby resulting in a 30% reduction in the weight of the lifting gear.  These are significant factors to consider as industries seek to make operator handling easier by reducing the weight of their lifting equipment, without compromising on strength and durability.

Secondly, Grade 100 lifting chain is designed to better withstand wear and fatigue, which is particularly important in applications where the chain is subjected to repeated lifting and lowering. Because the chain and components are manufactured from hardened and tempered alloy steels it has a high resistance to impact and wear to meet critical requirements of AS2321.

Another advantage of some Grade 100 lifting products is their higher resistance to corrosion and rust, making them more suitable for use in harsher environments and industries.

Experts in the industry have also noted that since the release of the 2014 Standards for Grade 80 & 100 Chain Slings. A3775.1:2014 and AS3775.2:2014, guidelines and regulations on proof testing and clarity over working load limits for Grade 100 chain and fittings has also bought more confidence and validity to their use.
