Looking for a long lasting chain for use on your farm's gates and stock yards? Our zinc plated chain is made from quality steel to ensure a strong and secure chain.
Our 6mm chain is perfect for lighter duty requirements such as securing a sheepyard gate. The 8mm chain is best for the heavy duty requirements needed for a cattleyard.
Whatever you need them for, you can trust in the quality of our chains.
Ultimately, the main difference between zinc plating and galvanised is that galvanised chain is better at rust prevention.
However, zinc plating still provides good prevention against rust, except at a cheaper price. It is also easier to weld.
If you want quality rust prevention, we recommend our galvanised chain, otherwise our zinc plated chain will still do a good job at a fraction of the price.
Galvanised vs Zinc Plating

No. Our chains are not load tested.
We recommend you do not use our chains for lifting or towing heavy loads.
If you plan to use your chain for heavy lifting and towing, we recommend you purchase load rated high tensile chain.
But for everything else, our chains are perfect for the job.

A D-shackle is a great option if you want to attach your chain to other objects. However, you will want to make sure you pick the right D-shackle for your chain.
When choosing a D-shackle, you will need to find out the inside width of the chain link. The pin of the D-shackle will need to be smaller than this width in order for it to fit through your chain link.
To find the inside width of the chain, simply subtract 2x the chain link diameter from the total width. For example, here is how you would calculate the inside width of an 8mm chain:
27mm (width) - 2 x 8mm (diameter) = 11mm (inside width)
In this example, the inside width of an 8mm chain is 11mm. This means you would want to get a D-shackle with a pin diameter (Ø) of 10mm or less. (An 11mm pin might be too tight a fit).
