Sling chains made by Ketten Wälder: Real all-rounders for rough everyday conditions


Not only do our sling chains comply with DIN standards – they also carry a special marking on each individual chain link. Thanks to a special process, Wälder chains are up to 20 % harder in the articulation area than usual DIN sling chains. This guarantees a noticeably longer service life. As far as the surface finish is concerned, customers can choose between many variants: black or red lacquered, natural black, bright-finished, yellow or white galvanized. It goes without saying that we use environment compatible lacquers.

We offer ring- and hook-type chains with load-bearing capacities from 200 to 26,500 kg, depending on the design and sling type (chain temperatures ranging from – 40 to + 200 degrees centigrade). Officially licensed by the German Trade Associations in 1977, we have since been manufacturing our high-strength round steel version chains as G8 chains.

To round off the equipment, we offer a large selection of components for you to choose from. These are technically designed in such a way as to even more emphasize the excellent quality of our sling chains. Our downloadable product catalogue contains detailed information, including a tabular overview of the load-bearing capacities of our products. Or just talk directly to your personal consultant, who will be pleased to answer any of your questions.
