Leaf chains are built to achieve higher strength for applications that perform lifting & hoisting operations. Unlike traditional roller chain, the leaf chains are only comprised of interlaced plates and pins for better strength and durability. In a leaf chain system, the chains use sheaves (pulleys) to guide and control the chain during use rather than sprockets.
In any lifting application there is always an elevated concern for safety. For enhanced quality control, every Nitro® leaf chain goes through a patented CCD Inspection imaging system to check for various potential defects.
