Don`t be let down by your security chain - make sure your chain has a similar level of security rating to your padlock rating...


There are many types of chain available, but each type will be designed and manufactured to perform well in a specific application.

A chain manufactured for lifting applications for instance will need maximum shear strength, whilst a mooring chain will need a level of ductility to meet the frequent strains put on it by a boat constantly moving with the tide or other moving water,

A security chain needs a balance between hardness and ductility. The hardness protects against cutting attack whilst the ductility helps protect against freezing or hammering attack.

The material or mix of materials used in the manufacture, will also have an impact on the level of security of the finished chain. A Boron Steel alloy chain will out-perform a chain manufactured from conventional carbon steel (and there are lots of grades of carbon steel!)
