What Kind Of Chain Is This?
If you've been on the market looking for a great
security chain, then there's a good chance you've heard of Pewag's 3012 chain. But what is it? Well, 3012 is actually a hardened traction chain. It's strong service record in that application made it an appealing choice as a security chain--if it can handle the duties of a traction chain, then surely it can hold up to bolt cutters! People love the size and the simple dark color of this chain. It is imposing to look at and extremely difficult to cut without power tools. This chain has a plain, polished finish, which means you may end up wanting to paint it or treat it with a Cold Galvanizing Spray
. You may already be familiar with Pewag's 3/8" Square Case Hardened Security Chain
--we literally sell a ton of it. This chain is very similar, except it's 2 mm larger (12 mm or 0.472" to be exact). This makes it beefier and even tougher to cut.How Is This Chain Different From The New 1/2" Pewag 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. From a cosmetic perspective, this chain is dark (it comes to us both in black and gray, depending on how it is heat-treated at the factory) while the New 1/2" Pewag Security Chain
is silver. Otherwise, the chains are almost identical with the same hardness and toughness.This Is The Chain You've Been Hearing About
Whether on YouTube (click on the Video tab), a website forum or just word of mouth, you may have already heard about this chain. It's in high demand and available to you right here from Westech Rigging Supply.What About The Lock?
The Abus Granit 37/70 is a true, high-security padlock that works well with larger security chains. Thieves hate these locks due to the high-quality materials used and their oversized shackle (at 0.55"). The body and shackle are made from hardened alloy steel, and the cylinder is inserted from the top, which means optimum drill and pull resistance. The Black Granit coating offers high corrosion resistance. Additionally, the lock cylinders can be rekeyed to match an existing key at any point down the road (referred to as "rekeyable"). Supplied with two keys, one featuring an integrated LED light for low light conditions.
