Known as the STAR among eye bolts due to its distinctive advantages:
RUD Chains Ltd is a leading manufacturer of lifting and lashing applications that guarantee ultimate safety when lifting and moving heavy loads. Offering more than 500 different tested and certified lifting/lashing points for bolting and welding RUD have a wide product range to suit a variety of project requirements.
Anyone in the industry knows how important safety is when lifting and moving heavy loads. Many manufacturing companies are unaware that the direction of the pull can have a major impact on the working load limit of the standard eyebolt, creating a safety breach. The solution to this is to use an appropriate lifting point that can adjust to the direction of the pull to allow full engagement of the bolt, resulting in a safe lift.
RUD have developed lifting points that are designed to adjust to the direction of the pull, there are known as the STARPOINT and the POWERPOINT.
The STARPOINT VRS also known as the STAR among eye bolts offers many advantages. Firstly the STARPOINT will swivel to the direction of the load lift, 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 is adjustable 360° in the force direction and offers a higher WLL than the DIN 580 eye bolt.
RUD provide standard and tailored solutions to meet even the most demanding environments, helping to deliver applications that are catered to specific requirements, project aims and environments.
