Shackles

Shackles play an indispensable role in ensuring the safety of lifting operations. Shackles are widely used in industries such as construction, maritime, manufacturing, and transportation, where heavy loads need to be safely hoisted, moved, or secured, including:

  • lifting of heavy loads using cranes or pulleys
  • stabilising cargo during transit
  • anchoring and mooring in marine environments
  • assembly and production in construction, and
  • vertical positioning of machinery and equipment.

Typically constructed from high-strength materials such as alloy steel, stainless steel, or carbon steel, shackles are engineered to withstand extreme forces and maintain their integrity under challenging conditions. They come in various designs, each tailored to specific applications and load requirements.

Choosing the right shackle for each lifting task, considering factors such as load weight, environment, and equipment compatibility, is essential to maintain a secure and efficient lifting process. Braddix offers a range of shackles for a variety of uses, including, bow shackles, D shackles, commercial D shackles, and chain shackles that adhere to stringent quality standards, offering the utmost confidence in their durability and dependability.
