Grade 120 RUD ICE

THE NEW HEAVY-WEIGHT CHAMPION

RUD lifting and lashing chains and components offer superior wear resistance and provide multi-directional load and lift options that maximise safety without compromising on strength. Our extensive lifting and lashing range is sold exclusively through a comprehensive national distributor network.

The long-awaited release of a higher-strength-lower-weight lifting chain is over. It has been almost 20 years since the market has seen such an improvement in lifting chain performance. And now, with RUDs launch of their innovative new ICE 120 sling chain system, we move into a new era in higher performing lifting and lashing solutions.

ICE 120 delivers improved performance
ICE 120 offers a higher level of performance in notch impact strength, breaking strain and fatigue strength - all at a full chain diameter smaller than Grade 80 equivalents:

  • 60% increase in Working Load Limit which means that the same load can now be lifted by a chain one full diameter size smaller;
  • 30% increase in surface hardness which means replacement costs can be reduced;
  • 30% lighter chain which is easier and safer to handle, and more economical to use;
  • Increase in notch impact strength to more than 55 Joule which guarantees safe use in temperatures from -60 °C to +300 °C;
  • A special fluorescent purple powder coating which permanently changes colour when the chain has been exposed to extreme temperatures.

An extensive range of chain sizes and components

  • ICE 120 chains are available in sizes from 6 mm to 16 mm;
  • A full range of master links, hooks, connectors, shortening devices;
  • We can provide fully assembled chain slings to your specific requirements.
