Nobles to distribute award winning Van Beest Green Pin Tycan® fibre lifting & lashing chain

Wednesday, 24 July 2019

Van Beest have recently released their Green Pin Tycan® chain that combines the almost paradoxical characteristics of being feather light and soft to the touch, while providing the strength of steel. Created from the world's strongest man-made fibre, Dyneema®, this link chain has all the performance and flexibility of steel chain but is a fraction of the weight. Dyneema® is light, flexible and up to 15 times stronger than steel on a weight-for-weight basis and a chain sling or lashing assembly made from Green Pin Tycan is up to 5 times lighter than the equivalent grade 100 chain version.

The soft touch and light weight reduce the risk of bad backs, cuts, bruises or hearing damage. Green Pin Tycan® is very easy to use and its light weight makes even long lengths of Green Pin Tycan® light enough for one person to work with all day long.  Tycan® Chain is extremely safe to use, non-corrosive, non-conductive and completely waterproof - in fact, it even floats! The soft touch and light weight allow for quicker application and greatly reduces the potential of damage to cargo, a critical factor when handling objects with sensitive surfaces.

By using Green Pin Tycan® in critical lifting & lashing applications companies can achieve greater efficiency and a safer working environment for their staff.  Recent key applications for Green Pin Tycan have included offshore lifting & lashing as well as onshore transportation lashing & lifting for critical cargo and equipment. 

For offshore applications, Green Pin Tycan® Lifting Chain has received a DNV GL Type Approval certification and DNV GL has also extended the certification of the temperature range under which Green Pin Tycan® Lifting Chain can be used: from -40⁰C (-40⁰F) to +70⁰C (+158⁰F).

In recognition of its success to date, and even greater future potential, Green Pin Tycan® fibre chain recently won the prestigious 2019 OTC Technology Award, for creating a lashing and lifting system that has all the performance and flexibility of steel chain but is a fraction of the weight.
