STATIC LOAD – The load resulting from a constantly applied force or load.
WORKING LOAD LIMIT-The maximum mass or force which the product is authorized to support in general service when the pull is applied in-line, unless noted otherwise, with respect to the center-line of the product. This term is used inter-changeably with the following terms:
- W.L.L. (WORKING LOAD LIMIT)
- S.W.L. (SAFE WORKING LOAD)
NEVER EXCEED ANY WORKING LOAD LIMIT (W.L.L.) of any DURABILT product, as you will be putting yourself and others at RISK which may result in SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH.
PROOF LOAD – The average force applied in the performance of a proof test; the average force to which a product may be subjected before deformation occurs.
PROOF TEST – A test applied to a product solely to determine non-conforming material or manufacturing defects.
MINIMUM BREAK STRENGTH (M.B.S.) – the maximum load or force applied to the product at which point the product fails to support the load, also known as MINIMUM BREAK LOAD.
SHOCK LOAD – A force that results from the rapid application of a force (such as impacting or jerking) or rapid movement of a static load. A shock load significantly adds to the static load.
DESIGN (SAFETY) FACTOR – Is a term denoting our product’s theoretical reserve capability, usually computed by dividing the Minimum Breaking Strength by the Working Load Limit. Generally these products have a minimum ratio of 3 to 1.
SPECIAL NOTE: The Durapullers (DP-T2, DP-T4, DP-T8) have a 2 to 1 ratio between the Capacity/M.B.S. and the Working Load Limit.
ALL LOAD BINDERS, STRAPS AND TIE-DOWNS:
Before the use of all lever and ratchet load binders please be familiar with State & Federal regulations and requirements. Be certain to use these load binders with the correct size and grade (GRADE 30 (Proof Coil), GRADE 40 (High Test) chain, GRADE 70 (Transport) chain, GRADE 80 (Alloy) or GRADE 100 (Alloy) chain) as they conform with the National Association of Chain Manufacturers (NACM) specifications and Federal specifications RR-C-271-C.
Be sure to conform with the U.S. Department of Transportation Motor Carrier Safety regulations, Parts 392-393 (all) and the CVSA vehicle inspection criteria. The minimum breaking strength as shown should only be used for calculating the number of chain tie down assemblies required to secure a load in conformance with D.O.T. Regulations 393, 102 (b).
