Lash and lift better with Synthetic Link Chains

World's strongest chain, made with Dyneema®

Synthetic link chains with Dyneema®, certified worldwide by DNV-GL, are a massive leap forward in lashing and lifting operations. Soft, quiet, easy to handle, and safe, they are simply a better way to lash or lift delicate, heavy and outsize cargo.

Versatile and user-friendly solution for operators and loads

Synthetic link chains benefit crews, cargoes, and business efficiency. They're eight times stronger and up to 85% lighter than comparable steel link chain alternatives. They even float on water, and one person can work with them all day long.

  • Easier handling and positioning saves time and money
  • Easy to shorten and less likely to damage cargo
  • Less noisy means faster work with better communication

Ideal for more and more industries & applications

Synthetic chains made with Dyneema® are already used for lashing and towing in outsized cargo transport, heavy shipping, heavy trucking/hauling, fishery, and aquaculture. And new uses involving lifting are now entering the market.

Typical industry applications include transport, building & construction, forging & casting, automotive, oil & gas, offshore, fishery, general purpose lifting, renewable energy, and engineered lifts.

Synthetic link chains for lifting outperform steel

Synthetic link chains provide a superior way to lift large, delicate and outsize equipment and components. They are just as strong as their steel alternatives, but lighter, safer, less likely to cause damage, quick to adjust on the fly, and easy to coil and store. From lifting heavy equipment, components, and timber, to general-purpose lifting and intra-plant handling, synthetic link chains do everything steel chains and slings can do, only better.

Crosby Tycan® chains: made with Dyneema® to be a better way to lash cargo

Crosby Tycan® chains can be used to lash anything from a six-tonne wind turbine blade to a 600-tonne electrical transformer. Being lighter, stronger, and easier to work with, they do this more efficiently, securely, and safely than you can with steel chains. And they don’t damage cargo either.
