RIGGING CATALOG

It is of utmost importance that anyone using this publication read and understand all warnings and other information listed below and/or adjacent to the product descrip-
tion. All products are sold with the express understanding that the purchaser is thoroughly familiar with the correct application and safe use. Use all products properly, in a
safe manner and for the application for which they were intended. CHARLESTONS/CAROLINAS RIGGING assumes no responsibility for the use or misapplication of any
product sold by this firm. Responsibility for design and use decisions rests with the user.
IMPORTANT WARNINGS
REMEMBER: ANY PRODUCT WILL BREAK IF ABUSED, MISUSED OR OVERUSED. Any well-designed and well-built product can become hazardous in the hands of a
careless user. THEREFORE:
1. Never exceed the Work Load Limit.
2. Match components properly.
3. Keep out from under a raised load.
4. Avoid shock loads.
5. Inspect products regularly.

It would be impossible in the scope of this publication to list all possible dangers and
misapplications associated with the use of all products contained herein. However, in
order to promote safe rigging habits, the most common hazards associated with the use
of these products are outlined.

Rigging manuals or other, more specific, literature should be consulted for more detailed
information and cautions.

WORK LOAD LIMIT - Never exceed the Work Load Limit (WLL) or Rated Capacity. The
Work Load Limit is the maximum load which should ever be applied to the product, even
when the product is new and when the load is uniformly applied - straight line pull only.
Avoid side loading. All catalog ratings are based upon usual environmental conditions,
and consideration must be given to unusual conditions such as extreme high or low
temperatures, chemical solutions or vapors, prolonged immersion in salt water, etc. Such
conditions or high-risk applications may necessitate reducing the Work Load Limit.

Work Load Limit will not apply if product has been welded or otherwise modified.

MATCHING OF COMPONENTS - Components must match. Make certain that compo-
nents such as hooks, links or shackles, etc. used with wire rope (or chain or cordage) are
of suitable material and strength to provide adequate safety protection. Attachments
must be properly installed and must have a Work Load Limit at least equal to the product
with which they are used.
REMEMBER: Any chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

RAISED LOADS - Keep out from under a raised load. Take notice of the recommenda-
tion from the National Safety Council Accident Prevention Manual concerning all lifting
operations:

All employees working at cranes or hoists or assisting in hooking or
arranging a load should be instructed to keep out from under the load.
From a safety standpoint, one factor is paramount: Conduct all lifting
operations in such a manner that, if there were an equipment failure, no
personnel would be injured. This means keep out from under a raised
load and keep out of the line of force of any load.

SHOCK LOADS - Avoid impacting jerking or swinging of load - Work Load Limit will not
apply. A shock load is generally significantly greater than the static load. AVOID SHOCK
LOADS.

REGULAR INSPECTIONS - Inspect products regularly for visible damage, cracks wear
elongations, rust, etc. Protect all products from corrosion. The need for periodic inspec-
tions cannot be overemphasized. No product can keep operating at its rated capacity
indefinitely. Periodic inspections help determine when to replace a product and reduce
rigging hazards. Keep inspection records to help pinpoint problems and to ensure peri-
odic inspection intervals.

Due to the diversity of the products involved and uses to which they can be put, it would
be counterproductive to make blanket recommendations for inspections procedures and
frequency. Best results will be achieved when qualified personnel base their decisions on
information from rigging and engineering manuals and on experience from actual use in
the field.

Frequency of inspection will depend on environmental conditions, application, storage or
product prior to use, frequency of use, whether or not life, limb or valuable property are at
risk, etc. When in doubt, inspect products prior to each use. Carefully check each
item to be inspected for wear, deformation, cracks or elongation - a sure sign of imminent
failure. Immediately withdraw such items from service.

Rust damage is another potential hazard. When in doubt about the extent of corrosion
or other damage, withdraw the items from service.

Destroy, rather than discard, items that have been judged defective. They might be
used again by someone not aware of the hazard of the defect.

DEFINITIONS

WORK LOAD LIMIT (WLL) - The Work Load Limit is the maximum load which should
ever be applied to the product, even when the product is new and when the load is uni-
formly applied - straight line pull only.
Avoid side loading. Never exceed the Working Load Limit.

PROOF TEST LOAD (PROOF LOAD) - The term Proof Test designates a quality
control test applied to the product for the sole purpose of detecting defects in material or
manufacture. The Proof Test Load (usually twice the Work Load Limit ) is the load which
the product withstood without deformation when new and under laboratory test conditions.
A constantly increasing force is applied in direct line to the product at a uniform rate of
speed on a standard pull testing machine.

BREAKING STRENGHT/ULTIMATE STRENGTH - Do not use breaking strengths as
criterion for service or design purpose. Refer to the Work Load Limit instead.

Breaking strength is the average force at which the product, in the condition it would leave
the factory, has been found by representative testing to break when a constantly increas-
ing force is applied in direct line to the product at a uniform rate of speed on a standard
pull testing machine.

REMEMBER: Breaking strengths, when published, were obtained under controlled
laboratory conditions that are almost always impossible to duplicate in
actual use.

DESIGN FACTOR - (sometimes referred to as safety factor) - An industry term denoting
theoretical reserve capability. Usually computed by dividing the catalog Breaking
Strength by the catalog Work Load Limit and generally expressed as a ratio. For exam-
ple: 5 to 1.

SHOCK LOAD - A load resulting from the rapid change of movement, such as impacting,
jerking of swinging of a static load. Sudden release of tension is another form of shock
loading. Shock loads are generally significantly greater than static loads. Any shock
loading must be considered when selecting the item for use in a system. AVOID SHOCK
LOADS.

Warning: Horizontal sling angles less than 30 degrees shall not be used.
ALLOY CHAIN SLINGS - GRADE 80
1. Determine the weight and configuration of the load(s) to be lifted.
2. Determine the type of chain sling required according to weight and configuration.
3. Determine the size of the body chain according to the working load limits* *. Be sure to take into consideration the effect of
the required angle.
4. Determine the reach required to give the desired angle. The reach is measured from the upper bearing surface of the mas-
ter link to the bearing surface of the lower attachment.
The life and strength of Grade 80 chain slings depend on proper inspection, maintenance and use.
For additional information, refer to ANSI B30.9 and OSHA 1910.184.
CARE
Chain requires careful storage and regular maintenance.
Store chains on an A frame in a clean, dry place.
To avoid corrosion, oil chains before prolonged storage.
Do not heat Grade 80 chain; this will alter its thermal treatment.
Do not plate or change surface finish of chain. Contact us for special requirements.
USE
To protect both operators and materials, observe these precautions when using chain slings:
Before use, inspect chain and attachments following the instructions under INSPECTION below.
Do not exceed working load limit. Any of the factors listed here can reduce the load the chain will hold:
Acceleration in rate of load application can produce dangerous overloading.
Variation in the angle of the load to the sling as the angle decreases, the working load of the sling will increase.
Twisting, knotting or kinking subjects links to unusual loading, decreasing the working load of the sling.
Use for purposes other than those for which slings are intended can reduce the working load of the sling.
Free chain of all twists, knots and kinks.
Center load in hook(s); hook latches must not support load.
Avoid sudden jerks when lifting and lowering.
Balance all loads; avoid tipping of loads.
Use pads around sharp corners.
Do not drop load on chains.
Match the size and working load limit of attachments such as hooks or rings to the size and working load limit of the chain.
For overhead lifting, use only alloy chain and attachments (Grade 80).

INSPECTION
It is important both to inspect chain slings regularly and to keep a record of all chain inspections. Follow this guide for such an inspection
system.
Before inspecting, clean chains with a non-acid/non-caustic solvent so that marks, nicks, wear and other defects are visible.
Inspect each link for these conditions to remove from service:
Twists or bends.
Nicks or gouges.
Excessive wear at bearing points.
Stretch.
Distorted or damaged master links, coupling links or attachments especially spread in throat opening of hooks.
Mark plainly with paint each link or attachment showing any of the conditions listed here to indicate rejection; remove from service until
properly repaired.
* * Working load limit:
The working load limit
is the maximum load in
pounds which should
ever be applied to
chain, even when chain
is new, and when load
is uniformly applied in
direct tension to a
straight length of chain.
