Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs
Where can I find the DGUV Type Approval of CHAIN?

DGUV Type Approval
Van Beest puts great emphasis on the quality of products. Recently, we have renewed our DGUV Type Approvals for many of our products. This allows us to H-stamp the components with our unique H number (H94).

DGUV (Deutsche Gesetzliche Unfallversicherung / German Social Accident Insurance) is the umbrella association of the accident insurance institutions for the industrial and public sectors, a leading certification association in Europe.

The test procedure includes verification of materials, verification of the dimensions on individual samples, tensile tests, fatigue tests and some specific tests such as a bending test, a latch lock test and a latch strength test. The results are compared to the specifications mentioned in the EN 1677 norm. With this comprehensive testing procedure and certification of both chain and components, Van Beest supplies the highest quality products that contribute to a safe working environment.

Where can I find the Working Load Limit table?

Is it allowed to weld on Green Pin® lifting equipment?

No! Green Pin® products are treated with well designed heat treatment, which results in a certain Minimum Break Load and other specific mechanical properties. These properties will be destroyed by the heat of welding. It even can initiate extreme hard spots and initial cracks, that will decrease the strength and fatigue life dramatically. An exception is made for Green Pin® GH and PAS products, as these need to be welded to a surface to function. For these items, please follow the instructions that are available at Green Pin® sales.
