RUD Chains is a leading manufacturer of lifting and lashing equipment that helps guarantee ultimate safety when lifting and handling heavy loads. Their diverse product range offers over 600 lifting and lashing points for bolting and welding covering a working load capacity range from 0.6-250 tonnes.
The RUD STARPOINT VRS lifting point for bolting has been designed to adjust to the direction of the pull. It rotates 360° meaning the working load limit is therefore always at the direction of the load. The STARPOINT removes the chance of bent eyes, backed out threads, or over-tightening which would cause unnecessary stress on the stem.
The VRS offers a safety factor of 4:1, is operational down to temperatures as low as -40° and offers a higher WLL than the DIN 580 eye bolt. It comes with RUD’s NEW ICE-Bolt which offers a higher toughness, bending strength and less wear occurance.
Complex lifts where the load has to be handled in all directions can be safely and effectively done with the use of the STARPOINT VRS. The VRS can be used across a variety of working environments from engineering, construction, rail, offshore, handling and MOD projects to name a few.
