Load Restraint

Restraint-Mate Transport Chain

Nobles Grade 70 Transport Chain is gold passivated for corrosion protection and cleanliness.

All our transport chain and components are proof tested and comply with AS/NZS 4344, which specifies a lashing capacity and a minimum breaking force.

Inspection before use

Inspection before use

 

  1. Grade 70 transport lashing chains and components should be regularly inspected to ensure they do not show any signs of deformation, elongation, nicks, cracks, gouges or excessive wear or corrosion.
  2. If necessary clean the lashing chain and components before inspection.

Care in Use

Care in Use

 

  1. Chains should only be lashed at tray support points.
  2. Use load corner protectors or padding on loads with sharp edges or corners. The lashing capacity of the chain is reduced by 25% if the corner radius is less than the nominal chain size.
  3. Ensure chains are not twisted or knotted when under tension.
  4. Do not tie knots in the lashing chain as a means of shortening or terminating the chain.
  5. Chains should not be joined with wire, bolts or any other means that does not match the strength of the chain.
  6. Lashing chains should be evenly loaded during use.
  7. Ensure the lashing chain cannot become crushed under the load.
  8. When the lashing chain is tensioned ensure the force does not exceed the lashing capacity of the chain.
  9. Do not use chain or components showing any signs of deformation, elongation, nicks, cracks, gouges or excessive wear or corrosion.
  10. Ensure that components are matched to the correct chain size. The chain size is embossed into Nobles Grade 70 components.
  11. Ensure components are used correctly and that no unusual bending forces are applied.
  12. Never heat or attempt to heat treat Grade 70 chain or components.
