Welded Chains

Welded chains tend to be a lot stronger than weldless chains type and are commonly used for security, hoisting or lifting, and other heavy duty applications.

  • In the USA, mild steel varieties of welded link chain are available as:
    • Short Link Chains
    • Medium Link Chains
    • Long Link Chains
  • The longer the chain link, the lighter the chain will be per unit length, which is advantageous.
  • However, long link chain does not pass through devices such as pulleys or windlasses as readily as short link chain will.
