Grade 100 Chain

Grade 100 chain is 25% stronger than Grade 80 Chain, allowing for easier handling and increased efficiency. Due to its higher alloy content, grade 100 chain is also more rugged and resistant to fatigue. Grade 100 chain is quickly becoming the more popular choice for construction, manufacturing and rigging companies. Grade 100 chains is approved for overhead lifting applications; however, please note that our tie down chain assemblies are not designed for overhead lifting due to the supplied hook.

The chain is tested throughout the manufacturing process to ensure quality and durability. All grade 100 chain is marked on each link accordingly for easy identification.
