Welcome to Leaf Chain.com
FB Chain is a leading leaf chain manufacturer and supplier. Our range of leaf chain (also known as forklift truck chain, lift chain and mast chain) for materials handling applications is manufactured to achieve the optimum combination of fatigue strength and wear resistance. We are able to supply BL (LH), AL and EL (LL) series cut leaf chain (including leaf chain with plastic inserts) and the accompanying anchor bolts (leaf chain clevises), pins and pulleys (rollers or leaf chain sheaves).
FB leaf chain manufacturing is focused on International Standards ISO4347, DIN8152, ANSI B29.8 & NFE26107 (BL-LH series leaf chain); ANSI B29.8 (ALseries leaf chain); and ISO4347, DIN8152 & NFE26107 (EL-LL series leaf chain).
We offer different materials and manufacturing methods to suit the most demanding leaf chain applications.
We supply leaf chain anchor bolts (leaf chain clevises) and leaf chain pulleys (leaf chain sheaves) individually and in bespoke OEM chain assembly kits and package solutions.
An in-house design service as well as specific heat treatments and integral bushings or bearings can be provided according to specification.
The FB Professional Chain Wear Gauge is a precision tool for the accurate measurement of chain elongation (chain wear) in imperial pitch leaf chain, forklift chain and roller chain.
It is widely used in the Thorough Examination of lifting equipment in the LOLER and PUWER regulations and allows service technicians to spot potential chain failure long before the next service.
