A double leg chain sling is a lifting sling made of two chains with end fittings attached to a master link or hook. Double leg chain slings are commonly used in lifting and hoisting operations where additional support and stability is required to safely lift heavy loads.
The two legs of the chain sling can be used to evenly distribute the load weight, which can help prevent damage to the load and reduce the risk of accidents. Double leg chain slings are often used in applications such as construction, manufacturing, and transportation.
Double leg chain slings are available in a variety of configurations, including adjustable length, fixed length, and endless loop. They can also be fitted with a variety of end fittings such as hooks, shackles, and master links.
When using a double leg chain sling, it is important to ensure that the sling is rated for the weight of the load being lifted. Regular inspection and maintenance of the chain sling is also important to ensure its safety and longevity.
Proper rigging techniques should be followed when using a double leg chain sling, including proper sling placement, use of appropriate hardware, and avoiding sharp edges and corners that can damage the sling. It is also important to follow all safety regulations and guidelines to prevent accidents and injuries.
