RUD ABA / L-ABA Weldable Lifting & Lashing Point



Shows damage & wear with the innovative RUD patented wear marking indicator:

RUD offer an extensive range of lifting and lashing applications which includes both welded and threaded types, covering a working load capacity range from 0.6 to 200 tonne.

Safety when lifting or lashing heavy loads is imperative. RUD, a market leader for providing safe lifting and lashing points have introduced the ABA Lifting point for welding and the L-ABA Lashing point.

The ABA Lifting point & L-ABA Lashing point are forged out of the high strength material CrNiMo, quenched and tempered and surfaced in phosphate for improved material strength and wear resistance. They are loadable in any direction and operational to temperatures as low as -40 degrees. The ABA lifting point offers a safety factor of 4:1 and the L-ABA offers a safety factor of 2:1.


The ABA & L-ABA offer the ability to check the load ring for damage and wear, via the innovative patented wear marking indicator, on both the inside and outside of the body of the load ring. The wear marking indicator offers a distinct safety benefit over other load rings.

The patented wear marks allows the user to know if there is more than 10% wear on the item, more than 10% wear on a lifting point means the item must be removed from service. Therefore, offering an ultimate safety factor.

The wear marks serve as a dual function because they also show the angle of the sling or attachment point relative to the ABA.

As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of lifting and lashing applications combined with their extensive range of products and knowledge in the market, RUD are continually innovating and developing their extensive product range to stay at the forefront of their customers’ demands.
