Columbus McKinnon(R) Offers New Long Reach And Web Sling Shackles
AMHERST, N.Y., U.S.A., March 18-21, 2002 -Columbus McKinnon, the
leading manufacturer of hoist and chain products in North America, recently introduced its new load rated long reach carbon steel shackles and alloy web sling shackles to meet
customer demand for versatile shackles.
The long reach carbon steel shackles are available in two body sizes, 3/4" body with 7/8" pin rated at a working load limit of 10,000 pounds and a 1" body with a 1" pin rated at a working load limit of 19,000 pounds. All shackles are painted orange with a polyester modified acrylic urethane baked-on finish that highlights the embossed working load limit, trace code and size markings, and provides added protection against the elements.
"The open design, extra long reach and generous load bearing surfaces will accommodate many rigging hookups that a standard shackle cannot reach," said David Johnston, product manager. "As with all rigging gear, extreme care should be taken to center loads and observe the working load limit of each component of your hookup."
The web sling shackles can be used on web slings from 2 to 6 inches in width. The new alloy web sling shackles also pass the fatigue requirements of DIN and ASTM A952.
"They utilize a bolt and nut with a linch style pin to secure the assembly in place," said Johnston. "All alloy web shackles are galvanized for longer life and marked with working load limit and size."
The web sling shackles are available in three body sizes and have working load limits from l4,500 pounds to 22,500 pounds with a design factor of 6:1.
