Arbil Lifting Launches New Crosby Platinum Range


Lifting gear component specialist Arbil Lifting is a preferred supplier for the new Crosby Platinum 8/10 chain fittings range, incorporating both Grade 80 and 100 components. The grade 100 is 20-25% stronger than its grade 80 counterpart.

These new grade 80 and 100 components have the added benefit of dual chain use, in addition to compatibility and cross use with grade 80 chains.

Willy Caubergs, managing director, Crosby Europe, said: “We decided to develop the Platinum line to bridge the gap between premium ranges of lifting components, such as our Kuplex range and the budget brands also available on the market. Our new Platinum line has been developed by the same engineers as our Kuplex range and is being produced within the same fully equipped UK premises.”

He added that, as with Kuplex, all Platinum line components are individually proof tested to 2.5 times the WLL.

Additionally, all components in the Platinum range are quenched and forged from alloy steel, which include Quic-Check angle and deformation indicators as standard. The new line meets European chain standard EN1677 & EN818, with full traceability and certification of each of our product lines accessible.

Dave Nicholls, Arbil Lifting general manager said: “We have been selling and servicing Crosby’s Kuplex range of lifting components for over 20 years now and during this time we have established a close working relationship with The Crosby Group. We keep large stock holdings of Crosby’s products, so we can quickly cater for component requests.”
