Grade 70 Transport Chain
Transport Chain is a standard link grade 70 chain made using high-strength / low-alloy carbon steel. The process that gives high grade transport chain it's strength is heat treating process. The combination of material and heat treating provides a more suitable chain strength for stabilizing heavy loads. All of our chain is plated with yellow zinc chromate finish and proof tested to ensure the load ratings.
Grade 70 chain is rated approximately 20% higher than High Test Grade 43 Chain and has become the most common grade of chain used in flatbed tie downs today. Truck drivers have many names for this type of transport chain calling it binder chain, binding chain, boomer chain, load chain, and coil chain. Any of our chain can be used in combination with our lever binders or ratchet binders.
We sell bulk chain which is available in drums without hardware or you can find preassembled transport chains with grab hooks on each end. We use clevis grab hooks on each end of the chain assembly which is available in 16 foot, 20 foot or 24 foot length. If you need a different length we carry all the components for you to build the exact chain for load securement.
All of Cargo Equipment's chain meets DOT regulations, NACM & ASTM Standards and WSTDA recommended standards. All chain and grab hooks are stamped G7 for easy identification.
