UD Load ring VLBS Offers Increased Working Load Limit by 50% more than the LBS
RUD offer an extensive range of lifting and lashing applications which includes both welded and threaded types, covering a working load capacity range from 0.6 to 200 tonne. Offering over 270 different tested and certified lifting/lashing points, 210 of which are for bolting and 60 for welding.
RUD know how important safety is in lifting which is why they have produced further product improvements to one of their leading lifting points. The LBS "RUD lug", together with the RBS Eye plate has gone through a significant upgrade - the biggest change since the product line was first introduced more than 25 years ago.
To align with RUD's leading Grade 100 VIP Sling Chain system; the LBS & RBS ranges have been re-designed and released as the VLBS & VRBS. The working Load Limits (WLL's) have increased significantly and the WLL(s) now align and match in with the RUD® Grade 100 chain ratings.
The VLBS load ring is forged out of the high strength material CrNiMo. It provides up to 50% higher working load limit, is loadable in any direction, can be tilted 180°and has a safety factor of 4:1.
The two protective support lugs, inside the load ring, are patented and improve the connection with the attachment as well as protecting the clamping spring. The optimized support shape at the suspension ring enables a strong support at loads 90° to the plane of the eye.
The welding block is forged out of quality welding material 1.0577+N (St 52-3) and clearly stamped with an identification number for the permissible WLL (Working Load Limit). The patented distance lugs assist in achieving the correct root weld.
As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of lifting and lashing applications combined with their extensive range of products and knowledge in the market, RUD are continually innovating and developing their extensive product range to stay at the forefront of their customers’ demands.
