Specialty Alloy Chain Slings
Alloy chain slings were designed for overhead lifting and boast the best resistance to abrasion, cuts, and heat in comparison to all other types of slings. Alloy chain slings also feature high flexibility in combination with average elongation (up to 20% prior to failure) and shock resistance characteristics. Perhaps the most advantageous feature of an alloy chain sling is its ability to be repaired. Nearly all damaged components discovered during an inspection cab be repaired and restored to useful conditions. Alloy chain slings do however have the poorest strength to weight ratio in comparison to all other sling materials. Our chain slings are available in many sizes and configurations from 7/32” – 1 ¼”. Horizon Cable can fabricate slings with grab hooks, sling hooks, foundry hooks, or self-locking hooks to name a few. We also have the capability to fabricate welded alloy chain slings upon request.
