Chain Slings - Grade 8

William Hackett have been manufacturing Grade 8 mechanically assembled chain slings for many years from our facility based in the United Kingdom. As individual markets have been developed William Hackett have been increasing asked to supply Grade 8 chain slings and assemblies for lifting and lashing into a variety of applications in the harsh offshore environment worldwide. We have therefore developed specialised offshore marine Grade 8 short link chain with ZINC-TOUGHTM technology corrosion protection properties that are best suited for the rigor’s of working in the offshore environment. Together with DNV type approved Grade 8 master links and hooks and corrosion protected Grade 8 components these chain assemblies can withstand the harshest test. The Grade 8 chain slings can be supplied against bespoke designs from stock in the UK in both single, two, three and four leg configurations in sizes 13mm – 32mm up to a working load limit of 67 tonnes.
