Green Pin introduces the Green Pin Power Sling® Shackle.
The Green Pin Power Sling® Shackle lets customers save up to 20% on synthetic- and wire rope costs thanks to its revolutionary design (patent pending). It has an optimal D/d ratio and the widest crown (+10%) in the industry.
About the latest Green Pin innovation, Vice President of Sales & Procurement Evert van Beuzekom said: “The transport and installation industry continues to be focused on cost effectiveness, while obviously not wanting to make any compromises on quality and safety. The ability of the Green Pin Power Sling® Shackle to save customers up to 20% on synthetic- and wire rope costs is thus very timely and gives them a real competitive advantage”.
On top of its cost saving benefits, the Power Sling® offers unparalleled safety and ease of handling. Each shackle has been individually proofload tested to twice the Working Load Limit; more than any other competing product. Long-term performance is guaranteed by extensive fatigue testing (over 40.000 cycles). Material characteristics have been thoroughly examined, both internally and in the shackle’s surface, by MPI-tests, ultrasonic inspection and X-ray tests. Furthermore, the Power Sling® offers great handling thanks to the lower body weight, multiple handling points and RFID-chips in both shackle body and pin.
The Green Pin Power Sling® is available in a range from WLL 125T to 1250T and can be supplied with a variety of certificates.
