Donghua Limited, the UK arm of one of the world’s largest chain manufacturers, is now stamping CE marking on all their leaf chain products sold across the European Economic Area (EEA).
CE Marking is a visual statement that the manufacturer takes responsibility for the conformity of the product to applicable EC Directives.
Bob Wellsbury, managing director of Donghua Limited which distributes chain across UK and Ireland, explained: “The Donghua Group is committed to producing high quality chain products. Adding CE Marking to our Donghua branded leaf chain alongside our unique manufacturer’s number, which is already etched on the chain every metre, not only provides our customers with full traceability right back to the raw materials used in production, but also the assurance that our chain has been assessed and complies with essential requirements of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and relevant EU health, safety or environmental legislation.”
He added: “Due to the industries in which leaf chain is used and the associated safety implications, we urge end-users to ensure they only buy high quality chain which is fully traceable and meets all applicable quality and safety standards.”
Donghua’s Sky Stacker leaf chain products are designed for arduous lifting applications and are engineered with press-fit inner and outer plates for high axial and radial torsion, calibrated holes which reduce pin wear, special heat-treated plates to increase fatigue life and load bearing with special lubricants to prevent corrosion. Their heavy duty lifting chain also comes coated and is ideal for damp and corrosive environments such as ports, freight terminals and harbours.
