  • Follow the following instructions while selecting Chain Slings.
    1) Double branch slings:
    For all angles between branches from 0-90° (0-45° to the vertical)
    WLL = 1.4 x WLL of a single branch made from similar chain.
    When additional marked for angles between branches of 90-120° (45-60 to the vertical)
    WLL = 1 xWLLofasingle branch madefrom similar chain.
    2) Three and Four branch slings:
    For all angles between branches from 0-90° (0-45° to the vertical)
    Four Branch
    WLL = 2.1 xWLLofasingle branch madefrom similar chain.
    When additional marked for angles between branches of 90-120° (45-60° to the vertical)
    Three Branch
    WLL= 1.5 xWLLofasingle branch madefrom similar chain.
    Note: In the case of a three branch sling the angle between branches shall be taken as twice to angle to the vertical, that is 2x single leg capacity.
 
 
The listed working loads should be reduced by at least 20% when the sling is being used in a choker hitch configuration.
  • ALTERNATIVELY CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING METHOD:
    A) For two leg (branch) slings multiply the capacity of single leg sling by 1.4 to obtain SWL of two legs at a included angle 90°.
    Table determining the SWL of 2 legs of given chain dia.
    Single Leg chain say Multiply by SWL of 2 Legs
    12mm grade T. (80) x is 7 tons
    SWL 5 Tons > 1.4 = at 90° angle
    B) For 4 leg (branch) slings multiply the capacity of single leg sling by 2.1 to obtain SWL of two legs at a included angle 90°.
    Single Leg chain say Multiply by SWL 3 or 4 Legs
    16mm grade T. (80) x is 16.8 tons
    SWL 8 Tons > 2.1 = at 90° angle
