Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the (WLL) Working load limit?

A: The “Working Load Limit” (rated capacity) is the maximum load that shall be applied in direct tension to an undamaged straight length of chain, strap or fittings

Q: What is the (MBL/MBF) Minimum break load/force?

A: The “Minimum Breaking Load/ Force” is the minimum load/force at which the product during manufacture has been found by testing to break when a constantly increasing force is applied in direct tension. Breaking load/force values are not guarantees that all chain or strap segments will endure these loads. This test is a manufacturer’s attribute acceptance test and shall not be used as a criteria for service or design purposes.
