4 Benefits of Grade 120 Components

1. It’s the Strongest Chain in the Industry

Grade 120 chain and components are 50% stronger than Grade 80 and 20% stronger than Grade 100 products. That added strength means you can select a smaller chain size for the job that’s lighter in weight and easier to handle – all without sacrificing working load limits.

2. It’s Extremely Durable

G120 chain features a revolutionary square link design that offers superior fatigue and bending resistance, making it an excellent choice for a wide variety of lifting applications. The patented square profile also offers increased contact between the surfaces on the links, resulting in a better grip than a traditional round link-style chain. A blue powder-coated finish adds corrosion protection.

3. It’s Easy to Identify

All Grade 120 Chain and Components feature a light-blue powder coating for quick and easy identification. You will also find either “120” or “12” markings on the chain and components as additional identification as Grade 120 alloy.

4. It’s Made by Pewag

Our Grade 120 chain and components are made by Pewag, an industry leader in quality chain products. With a history dating back over 500 years, Pewag is an established and trusted manufacturer in the transportation and lifting industries.

Grade 120 Chain Slings

Chain slings manufactured with grade 120 chains offer the highest strength available on the market. They are excellent for heavy-duty lifting applications.

There are two main types of lifting slings: standard and adjustable. Both options allow the user to customize the sling to suit their specific lifting application. Choose from several options including the number of legs, length of the chain, and type of end fitting.
