Leaf Chain

Leaf Chains are robust, high-strength chains commonly used in lifting applications, such as forklifts, cranes and hoists. Their primary function is to support and lift heavy loads in a controlled manner.

The simplest of steel chains, consisting only of link plates and pins. This chain has a great tensile strength than roller chains and run over sheaves rather than sprockets.

Suitable for hoisting, hanging, balancing, dragging or motion transmitting applications. Leaf chains are often used as counterweight chains for machine tools, elevator and oven doors, fork lift trucks masts, spinning frames and similar lifting or balancing applications. Plates are connected by pins and hold the tension loaded on the chain.
