Restricted covers a temperature range of -20 °C to +200 °C and use under normal conditions represented by non-existent automated or multi-shift handling processes, no use in combination with extended crane operations, no handling of hot or dangerous goods or no use for endless slings. The range of nominal diameter, dn, covered by this document is from 4 mm to 32 mm. These sling chains are round steel short link chains with a nominal pitch, pn = 3 × dn, electrically welded, heat-treated and tested.
