Our workshops comprise all facilities and systems for the manufacturing and control of top quality products. This include tool design, advanced tool shop, forging, heat
threatment, machining, hot dip galvanizing and quality control.

Working Load Limit (WLL) = The maximum load a component or lifting assembly is authorized to take in general use under straight pull. The WLL is often known as Safe Working Load (SWL).
Proofload (PL) = The maximum load applies when prooftesting a component or lifting assembly. The tested item may not show visible permanent deformation after proofloading.
Minimum Breaking Load (MBL) = The minimum load under straight pull at which the component or lifting assembly may break.
Safetyfactor (S.F.) = The ratio between the MBL divided by WLL, for instance 6,0
Shockload = A resulting load from impact or jerk of a static load. A shockload is generally much larger than the static load and great care should be taken to avoid such hazardous loads.

We appreciate the trust shown us when specifying, ordering and using Gunnebo shackles.
