Specification and expert advice
After decades of experience working with leaf chains, our technical advisers are well placed to supply customers with the ideal solution for their individual needs. We are able to recommend the right strength and quality of product as well as various heat treatments, coatings and lubricants according to application. We even offer an in-house design service for integrated lifting systems.
Superior quality leaf chains
Our leaf chains and machined parts are produced from specialist steels using the latest technology and manufacturing processes. The steels used have been specially selected for their ability to withstand shock loads and maintain their strength and wear-resistant properties even after heat treatment. As a result FB leaf chains offer high fatigue strength, minimum elongation due to wear and a long service life. FB is one of, if not the most trusted brand of leaf chain on the market.
Our enviable reputation is not only due to the quality of our products but also to their consistency and traceability. All of our chains and machined parts are fully traceable due to the unique batch numbers on the products themselves. Each leaf chain despatched is issued with a chain test certificate, detailing the batch number, order number, minimum breaking load and proof load applied. This system ensures greater compliance to manufacturing standards and provides customers with the peace of mind that these safety critical parts demand.
