Chains

Each type of chain has its intended uses and a maximum weight it can hold before stressing and finally breaking which we’ve charted out for each chain type we have available. However if more detail is needed for a specific type of chain, please feel free to contact us here or call at 800-927-8549.

Chain Materials:

  • Stainless Steel Chains – Strong and highly resistant to rusting
  • Galvanized Steel Chains – For applications requiring corrosion resistance
  • Steel Chains – Generic, high strength chain
  • Brass Chains – Strong, slightly resistant to corrosion and germicidal

Chain Grades:

Chains are rated and given a “grade” by the National Association of Chain Manufacturers according to their tensile strength.

  • Grade 30 Chain – General purpose chain, not used for overhead lifting
  • Grade 40 Chain – Equal strength to Grade 43, yet smaller in size, not used for overhead lifting
  • Grade 43 Chain – High strength, used for tied owns mainly, not used for overhead lifting
  • Grade 70 Chain – Otherwise known as “Transport Chain” used for tied owns on transportation loads
  • Grade 80 Chain – Made for safety, ideal for overhead lifting or heavy duty towing
  • Grade 100 Chain – Up to 25% stronger than Grade 80 chain, ideal for overhead lifting or heavy duty towing
