What Kind Of Chain Is This?
This is Pewag's original design for security chain, and many consider it to be the perfect size. It is smaller than the 1/2" (12 mm) security chain we offer, yet it is large enough to be a great theft deterrent and it feels solid in your hand. It has a surface hardness of 62 HRC Min. which is what makes it so tough to cut (check out our Video tab). Prior to Pewag's 3012 chain gaining in popularity, this was the #1 security chain we sold.
How Is This Chain Different From The 3012 Chain?
For starters, the 3012 chain is actually a traction chain that was not originally designed for security--that does not make it any less formidable, however. The 3012 chain is also bigger at 12 mm in diameter. While this chain is hardened 10% deep, the 3012 chain is hardened 6% deep. From a cosmetic perspective, this chain is silver while the 3012 chain is black.
- Square, case-hardened links
- Cannot be cut with bolt cutters…square link shape does not allow bolt cutters to get a proper bite, which prevents them from cutting the chain
- Requires tremendous effort to cut, a great theft deterrent
- Electro-galvanized finish for corrosion protection
- Surface Hardness: 62 HRC Min. | 750 HV10
