We offer a comprehensive range of plastic chains offering varying degrees of toughness. Our Kolibri energy chain is suitable for most standard applications. However, our PKK chain is an option for more challenging applications where a more robust chain is required. The modular design of the PKK ensures that we can always get the size of the chain right.

Replacing plastic with steel

In many cases it makes sense to replace a troublesome plastic chain with a steel chain. Steel chains are infinitely more robust than plastic chains and can be manufactured to any size that is required. All steel chains are assembled at our works in the UK and available at short lead times.
