A New & Better Way to Build Chain Slings
GrabiQ is an exciting new family of alloy chain sling components. Chain slings used to be built with many components, each one doing a separate job. That made chain slings heavy, bulky and expensive. With GrabiQ, a single component can perform up to three separate functions. For example, a Master Grab serves as the master link, connecting link for the load chain and as the shortening hook for adjustment of the chain (available as "MG" for single leg chains or "MGD" for double leg chains). Building the same chain sling using "old style" components would result in using up to seven top rigging components instead of just one.
Fewer Components Means Less Weight
Most of the time, GrabiQ slings will be lighter than traditional chain slings because fewer components are used. And because GrabiQ fittings are made from Grade 100 alloy steel, they have a lifting capacity that is usually 25% higher than Grade 80 chain slings.
To properly inspect a chain sling, you must inspect each component. That takes a lot of time, which leads to many users skipping the inspection process altogether. Because GrabiQ slings use fewer components, chain sling inspections are easier to perform, meaning they are more likely to be done on a regular basis (as legally required).
- A unique all-in-one top fitting, combining a master link, connectors and shortening hooks for a double leg chain sling
- Integrated cradle chain pockets for shortening leg are 100% efficient…no extra grab hooks or shortening clutches needed to adjust length of sling legs
- Less bulk means less weight, less moving parts and typically a lower cost than a similar conventional chain sling
- Heat number identification allows full product traceability
