Tycan synthetic chain gets new US distributor
Netherlands company Van Beest BV has appointed US Lift-It Manufacturing Co Inc as the North American Master Distributor for Green Pin Tycan Synthetic Chain. Tycan Synthetic Chain is manufactured from DSM Dyneema DM-20, a fibre designed for demanding industrial applications.
Weight for Weight, DM20 is eight times stronger than steel making lightweight Tycan Chain a viable alternative for appropriate load handling and load securement applications. After a very rigorous testing, auditing and verification process, Green Pin Tycan Synthetic Load Handling Chain has received DNV-GL type approval.
Chris Keffer, Van Beest’s managing director – USA and Canada said, “The Lift-It management team has done a spectacular job as our West Coast regional warehouse for Green Pin shackles and fittings. Tycan Synthetic Chain will be well served by Lift-It and their team of North American Master Distributors who will do much more than simply sell Tycan products, but provide training as well as documenting the ongoing value propositions that make Tycan Chain the adjustable option for properly trained and informed riggers and transportation professionals.
“Tycan Synthetic Load Handling Chain and Tycan Chain components are used to fabricate
single, double, triple and four leg – adjustable chain sling assemblies with capacities ranging from 3400 to 23,000lb. Load handling chain assemblies feature a 5/1 design factor. Lashing chain assemblies feature a 3/1 design factor and are available in 11,021 and 14.990 Work Load Limits.
Lightweight Tycan chain can dramatically increase productivity with less effort, injury, and time. The
value proposition of Tycan truly make dollars and sense for the rigging and transportation industries.”
Lift-It CEO, Michael J Gelskey said, “ We are honored in our association with Van Beest and are extremely excited about this revolutionary product. We are putting together a Tycan-NA Team of Master Distributors who are the crème de la crème of the North American rigging market to provide immediate service and market coverage.”
