Van Beest Introduces New Sockets

Posted on September 17, 2012

Van Beest has expanded the Green Pin socket range with two new types: Sockets with safety bolts and Open Wedge Sockets with safety bolts. 

The sockets are used to attach steel wire rope to a fixed point. They are the strongest steel wire rope end fittings available; if they are assembled properly, they meet at least the breaking strength of the steel wire rope.     

Both the open spelter socket with safety bolt and open wedge socket with safety belt are made of high-tensile steel with a hot dipped galvanized finish. For each, the temperature range is -20°C to +200°C and certifications include a works certificate and a proof load test certificate. An EC Declaration of Conformity can be supplied upon request.

These two new models are now available from stock.
