Pewag Security Chain
Pewag Anti-Theft Chain
Pewag security chains are one of the toughest security chains out there. It is one of the hardest chains to cut using bolt cutters or other standard tools, making it an excellent choice for protecting your assets.
They come in three sizes and have an anti-corrosion electro-galvanized finish for extra durability.
Hardened Security Chain
Why is Pewag chain so hard to cut? This cut-resistance is due to both the hardness of the steel and the shape of the links.
One way steel hardness is determined is through the Rockwell rating system (also known as the HRC). This method measures how much of a dent is created in the metal when a measured amount of weight is applied. A good HRC for security chain is 56 and above.
Pewag's rating is an impressive 62 HRC for all three chains. The 9/32” and 3/8” security chains are hardened to 62 HRC 10% deep, while the 1/2” security chain is hardened to 62 HRC 6% deep. Not only does this mean they take more strength to cut, but it also means the chain is harder than most bolt cutters - they tend to have a rating of around 59-60.
Additionally, the chain links have a square profile. Hardened square link chains create a larger contact area and prevent bolt cutters from getting the necessary grip to start cutting through.

Hardened Steel Chain Uses
Pewag square security chain is commonly used to protect boats, bikes, trailers, and gates, although the application options are practically limitless. The main thing to take into consideration is chain size.
Use this compact size with smaller items, such as bikes, motorcycles, and scooters.
You will get industrial-level protection with both the 3/8" and the 1/2" size - they are great for commercial facility protection and securing large, valuable items. If you need a smaller chain size or are looking to reduce the amount of weight you need to transport, the 3/8" chain is recommended.
If size and/or weight is not an issue, go for the 1/2" chain to secure your facility, trailer, or boat.

Heavy-duty chain requires a heavy-duty lock. Make sure your lock is up to the job by choosing Viro.
