Safety is of paramount importance for all rigging activities in the mining industry, especially in the case of underground mining. Green Pin® shackles, turnbuckles and other rigging gear are guaranteed 100% failsafe: production follows a rigorous process starting with the sourcing of high grade materials to the automated production processes. This significantly reduces the margins of error compared to other production methods and provides you with a safe and reliable product.
As mining operations continue 24/7, metal fatigue is a real concern. Guaranteeing their long-term durability, Green Pin® Bow and Dee Shackles, Polar Shackles and Turnbuckles are fatigue-tested up to 20.000 cycles with 1.5 times the Working Load Limit. On top of this, specific Green Pin® products have many safety features.
Green Pin Tycan® Chain is a fibre chain up to eight times lighter than steel chain yet just as strong. Enhancing the safety of riggers even further, Green Pin Tycan® chain is also soft to the touch and non-conductive. Strenuous work becomes lighter as a result and cuts and bruises are a thing of the past. Injuries, disabilities and even fatalities because of rigging accidents are reduced as a result. And next to safety, workplace productivity and cost-effectiveness are improved as well.
