Hinged edge protector for chains
The attachment chain may only be used as an attachment accessory without edge protection if a 20% reduction in load lifting capacity is taken into consideration or if the next-largest chain thickness is used. Otherwise, a secutex SK-K hinged edge-protector must be used.
A “sharp edge” exists when the edge radius is smaller than the nominal thickness of the lifting chain. Further information is available in the “sharp edge“ chapter.
