In the lifting and handling industries the need for unrivalled quality and strength is paramount to ensure the highest standards of safety and efficiency are adhered to. RUD Chains, a leading manufacturer of lifting and lashing applications offer ample benefits with their VLBS weld on load rings.
RUD’s VLBS load rings are forged out of 100% crack detected high strength material CrNiMo with 2 patented inner supporting lugs. The optimised support shape at the suspension ring enables a strong support at loads 90° to the plane of the eye. A protected spring keeps the ring bracket in every required position, and also reduces vibration induced noise.
The VLBS load rings allow a full pivot of 180 degrees from the weld point, making lifting and lowering of loads an easy process, diminishing concern of tilting and uneven weight distribution of loads.
A major advantage of the VLBS load rings are that they offer a higher working load limit of up to 50% stronger than previous models giving customers a greater degree of confidence and accuracy in lifts, definitely a deciding factor when considering safety and accuracy of lifts.
The VLBS load rings are coated with a heat sensitive paint, unique to RUD’s VIP range of lifting equipment. The heat sensitive paint is an exceptional innovation, the load ring will change colour once it has reached temperatures above (200°C). The changes in colour allows you to monitor how much heat the load ring has been exposed to ensuring your load rings are safe and working effectively. Extreme heat can reduce the working load limit; therefore the heat sensitive paint enables you to make assured decisions on future lifts, a must have indicator for heat sensitive working environments.
RUD chains are a leading manufacturer of lifting and lashing applications providing solutions to a vast array of customers and industries from transport to wind power, RUD provide standard and tailored solutions to meet the demands and requirements of their customers.
