What are the product advantages of our stainless steel shackles?

  1. Corrosion resistance: Stainless steel, also known as inox steel (from the French "inoxydable", meaning "non-corrosive" or "rust-free"), is known for its excellent resistance to corrosion and rust, making shackles made from this material particularly useful for applications that are exposed to the weather or salty environments.
  2. Durability: The robustness of stainless steel ensures that the shackles remain durable and reliable over a long period of time, even under heavy loads or frequent use.
  3. Cleanliness and hygiene: Stainless steel is easy to clean and disinfect, making it ideal for applications in food processing, medicine and other areas where hygiene is important.
  4. Aesthetics: Stainless steel has a clean and shiny appearance that remains attractive for years and is often preferred for visible fixings.
  5. Low maintenance: The maintenance of stainless steel shackles is minimal as they do not need to be painted or coated to protect them from the environment.
  6. Strength and rigidity: The material offers high strength, which means that stainless steel shackles are able to support significant loads without breaking or deforming.
  7. Resistance to extreme temperatures: The stainless steel used can be used at both very low and very high temperatures, making it suitable for many different corresponding applications.
  8. Sustainability: Stainless steel is 100% recyclable, which contributes to a reduction in environmental impact and more sustainable production.


What are shackles?

A shackle (also known as a shackle hook) is a U-shaped bracket that can be locked with a screw or pin to connect two parts.

Where are shackles used?

Shackles are primarily used to absorb tensile forces when transferring ropes, wire ropes or chains to fixed components. The bolts are often secured with nuts or safety pins. The use of a shackle makes it easier to replace a damaged wire rope or chain. A curved shape, for example, makes the connection more flexible. Shackles are mainly used in shipping, but also in conveyor technology and mechanical engineering as well as in many other industrial sectors.
