Lifting Device Chains
The strength required to lift thousands and even tens of thousands of pounds around a factory floor is extreme, which is one of the reasons that lifting/leaf chain is such an important part of manufacturing today. Heavy duty lifting chains are used in a variety of different applications, such as moving containers at port, lifting heavy loads such as boats, and hauling heavy materials within warehouses with forklifts. In highly corrosive environments, our ProCoat technology will keep you running longer. Lifting chains are durable and versatile for a multitude of lifting applications due to their construction and high tensile strength. PEER Chain is able to cut our leaf chains to your specified length. Need anchors or clevises? Please contact our helpful Customer Success Ambassadors to discuss your specific needs.

Leveraging the Power of Physics
Lifting chain is part of a simple machine called a hoist that leverages the power of physics to move very heavy objects. The lifting chains operate over a sheave that is engaged through the use of a motor or hydraulics. The first known hoist was assembled in the 1800s, but historians believe that they had to have been also used in the time of ancient Egypt during the building of the pyramids.
Usage of Lifting Chains
Even when you can’t see a physical lifting chain, chances are that if something heavy is being moved by a forklift or lift device, this type of chain is likely to be involved. From ports to warehouses of every size, lifting chains do the heavy duty work that keeps our customers running. Constructed of a series of plates and pins, PEER Chain’s lifting chains are engineered to a high degree of precision.
If lifting chains are used that are not suitable for your application or load, you run the risk of premature wear and potential failure. Damaged or defective chain should be replaced immediately, as it is a serious safety hazard due to the pressure that is exerted on the chains when they’re bearing a heavy load.
