Load links

Strainstall’s load links offer a cost effective alternative to standard load cells, including cabled load links, wireless load links and built-in-display load links.

Their rugged construction makes them ideal for lifting and weighing operations in the most extreme environments, including marine, offshore and onshore applications. Manufactured from high tensile, aerospace grade aluminium, the units are anodised to protect against corrosion. The link loading holes are bevelled so that torsional effects are minimised, with an internal antenna for added protection.

Available with a range of displays to suit each application, all of our load links are environmentally sealed, easy to handle and are supplied with fully traceable calibration certificates.

Strainstall uses its expertise to custom design and manufacture load links to suit your specific applications. It also provides an in-house repair and calibration service, offering full flexibility when it comes to your lifting and weighing needs.
