Petersen Unveils a New Line of Stainless Steel Shackles

Petersen is pleased to introduce a new line of 316L screw-pin tested & certified CE marked stainless steel lifting shackles.

These new shackles are an extension to our popular 316L E-pin range and are available as a tested dee-shackle or tested bow-shackle with either a regular ‘A-type’ screw pin or a countersunk ‘B-type’ screw pin.

All Petersen 316L tested & certified stainless steel lifting shackles are forged at our factory in England from high-quality European stainless steel. To give you full peace of mind we:

  • Operate a full traceability quality system to the aircraft industry standard AS9100-C
  • All stainless steel lifting shackles have a minimum 6:1 factor of safety
  • Individually proof-load test all shackles to 2 x WLL
  • Etch a unique test reference number on each shackle – this also appears on the EN10204 3.1 test certificate
  • CE mark all stainless steel lifting shackles and supply with safe usage instructions

The special forging process gives you an increadibly strong shackle. As you can see in the image below, the grain structure of the high-strength drawn bar is preserved and contoured around the head. By not breaking grains as happens in the old-fashioned drop-forging process we can give you the best possible corrosion resistance and fatigue strength. Our minimum breaking loads are 6 times the WLL but in testing we regularly see shackles getting to 8 or 10 times the WLL before failure.

All Petersen 316L stainless steel lifting shackles are delivered to you with a certificate of test and examination EN10204 3.1 which states the identification number, date of manufacture, product code and description, date of test, applied load and traceability number. We can also provide you with material certificates and a declaration of conformity on request. All Petersen stainless lifting shackles are also supplied with safe usage instructions in accordance with the machine directive 2006/42/EC.

Petersen 316L stainless steel screw-pin lifting shackles are available with WLL up to 12t.
