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

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
