Chain Slings Grade 8

Chain Slings Grade 8

Chain slings are a versatile piece of Lifting Equipment which can be assembled to meet your own requirements. Assembled in five different formations to suit most lifting applications.

As with all lifting equipment, Chain Slings should be inspected by a responsible person before each period of use. If a defect is found the chain sling should be returned to your local Thameside Lifting depot where a competent person will repair the sling.  

Chain Slings are classified as a “lifting accessory” and are covered by LOLER. As such all chain slings should be thoroughly examined by a competent person at periods not exceeding 6 months.

Chain Slings should not be used unless they are accompanied by a valid declaration of conformity or a certificate of thorough examination.
