KWB Chain Slings

KWB grade 100 chain slings have a signal violet varnish coat and a heavy powder coating that helps with corrosion resistance. KWB is a Pewag company, a well-respected manufacturer based in Europe. We import and expertly assemble their manufactured chain and end fittings into the high-quality chain slings you see here.

Types of KWB Chain Slings

Standard and adjustable KWB slings can both be configured a number of ways to ensure they meet the needs of the lift. Several different options are available, including number of legs, size of chain, and length of chain. Custom options for various end fittings are also available by calling our sales team.

Standard KWB chain sling

Features one, two, three, or four lengths of chain, each with a master oblong link at the top, and your choice of hooks: foundry hook, grab hook, sling hook, or self-locking hook.

Adjustable KWB chain sling

Designed with the same leg configuration as a standard chain sling, but each leg comes with additional hooks that enable the operator to shorten the length of the legs as needed. Foundry hooks, grab hooks, sling hooks, or self-locking hooks are all available end fittings on KWB adjustable chain slings.

Proof Testing

Proof testing has been done on every link of chain to 2.5 times its working load limit. To get your custom chain sling tested at the time of manufacture, it must be requested when the order is placed with our sales specialists. For an additional fee, we will proof test your sling and issue a certificate when requested at the time the order is placed.

All of our chain meets or exceeds the latest guidelines of the National Association of Chain Manufacturers (NACM), ANSI B30.9 standards and OSHA specifications.
