Grade 316L stainless steel
Forged CE stainless steel captive pin D shackle. Captive pin 'patented'. Not only are these self-locking, the pin is also connected to the body at all times, even when fully opened. Consequently, there is no more risk of seeing it fall in the water, which would make the shackle unusable. These shackles can therefore be fitted completely safety using just one hand. Hot dropped forged from a single piece of stainless steel, adding strength and consistency of manufacture for total security and reliability. The technical characteristics of every Shackle is closely controlled and tested before, during and after the manufacturing process. Manufactured from AISI 316 stainless offering excellent corrosion resistance, especially in marine environments. CE marked in accordance with the Machines Directive 2006/42, these Wichard products can be used as lifting accessories. Each product displays the following information: Working Load Limit (WLL) = 5:1 safety factor of the break load, CE marking, Product origin, Manufacturer’s logo. Material and conformity certificates available on request. 1403-
Working Load (WL) = Static load at which the product will still function without excessive friction or wear or permanent deformation of components.
Breaking Load (BL) = Static load at which a major failure of one or more structural components or complete destruction of the product.
Working Load Limit (WLL) = 5:1 safety factor of the breaking load, used for industrial applications.
The Forging Process
Wichard forges its parts by drop forging, using a forge hammer: an operation which involves forming a heated slug under pressure between two dies. This technique makes the structure of the metal homogeneous and gives the part strength and elasticity.
The parts are then finished and tested prior to being sold. Forging guarantees the elasticity of the product, its resistance to corrosion and strength, while optimising the size of the parts.
