LASHING CHAIN

McKinnon's lashing chains are manufactured from quality steel making it suitable for simple and complex assemblies.

Lashing chain is very similar to CTC chain and is also used to tie down cargo.

McKinnon transport chains
and components are combined to secure assemblies
typically used to tie-down loads transported from one destination to the next.

LASHING CHAIN

MINIMUM BREAKING STRENGTH
This is the calculated value that will ensure minimum mean stress at a failure of 400 MPa.

This value can be converted to a minimum KN (kilonewton) or a ton value for sizes 10 mm or 13 mm.

The minimum specified break force values at a factor of safety of 4:1 are as follows:

OPERATING PRECAUTIONS

We strongly recommend that you familiarise yourself with SABS 10187: 2009.

It is advisable that the total breaking strength of the Binder Chains used must at least be equal to 1.7 times the mass of the load carried.

Inspect chains, tensioners, fittings and anchoring points for any sign of damage or wear.

Remove twists, kinks or knots from chain before use.

Do not use “Cheater Bars” for additional leverage when tensioning binders.

Postion tensioning device carefully to avoid bending action over corners or sharp edges as this not only causes damage but can result in the fracture of the chain or fittings.

Identify the areas in the load where mass is concentrated and apply the binding chains accordingly to avoid unbalanced binding.

Make use of wedges or chocks so that your load cannot move.

Match chain to fittings, all fittings must at least have the minimum breaking strength of the chain used.

Protect from unnecessary exposure to the weather during storage.

Check your lashings before moving off and, also, after you have travelled a few kilometers.
