Nobles new NOBLE10™ chain lifting system now includes larger sizes for heavier lifting applications. Since the launch of NOBLE10™ in October 2019, the 8-20mm grade 100 chain lifting products have been flying off the shelves with customers choosing the “game chainging” assemblies for much of their lifting needs. The expanded range of NOBLE10™ now includes 22, 26 and 32mm chain, to be assembled with components such as single and multi-leg master links, chain connectors, self-locking/safety catch hooks and grab shorteners. The original product range provided a working load limit of up to 27.7 tonnes*. The expanded range brings the maximum working load limit to 69.2 tonnes*, or almost 2.5 times more, allowing for a heavier range of lifting applications often required in heavy engineering or infrastructure construction.

When it comes to lifting and lashing heavy loads, the most common equipment used is wire rope, steel chains and/or synthetic slings. Whilst wire rope and steel chains are strong and get the job done, they are also heavy and rough which can lead to injury or damage to delicate surfaces. And synthetic slings, while light, are fixed in length and thus less versatile than chains. Recognising these shortcomings in key applications, Nobles is now stocking and distributing the new Green Pin Tycan® fibre chain by Van Beest, which is transforming the way companies lift and lash. Created from the world's strongest man-made fibre, Dyneema®, the Tycan® chain has all the performance and flexibility of steel chain but is a fraction of the weight.
