Load Links

Scotload’s cost effective load links enable accurate and reliable load monitoring.

Our links are designed to minimize stress concentrations and maximise strength. The design incorporates features which increase reliability, reduce the risk of damage and ensure ease of use.

Manufactured from high tensile, aerospace grade, anodised aluminium, our links are suitable for use across all industry sectors including marine and offshore. They are fully Finite Element Analysis (FEA) optimised and destructively tested.

We have a range of load links in stock, up to 500 tonnes, for purchase or hire that are ready for immediate dispatch. Larger capacities are available on request and all of our links are supplied with full calibration and proof load certificates.
