The RUD lifting product range offers many advantages to the user and equipment being lifted. RUD has earned over 500 international patents for their continuous product development and innovative approach.

RUD manufacture and supply over 700 lifting and lashing points for bolting and welding covering an impressive working load limit of 0,6 250 tonnes. RUD Chains are robust and resilient, offering a safety factor of 4:1 combined with the ability to work across varied temperatures as low as -60C to as high as 300C.

The RUD IRS-LT ICE-Eye bolt has been specifically designed for low temperature operation down to -60C to plus 200C. The eye bolt offers a safety factor of 4:1, is 100% electromagnetic crack detected and is embedded with the RUD RFID chip.

The IRS-LT eye bolt perfectly complements the RUD ICE range of chain slings which are also capable of operating down to -60c to +300c. The IRS-LT eye bolt and ICE chain is coated with RUDs innovative pink powder coating which acts as an overheating indicator, showing the temperatures in which the chain can be safely used. The chain will turn from pink, to brown, then black once the chain has reached above the operational temperature of the chain, highlighting that the chain is unsafe to use and must be taken out of service.

The RUD VLBS-U-LT welded load ring offers another low temperature option operating to temperatures as low as 45C, making it a perfect option for many specialised lifting projects. It can be supplied from 2.5t to 10tonnes, offers an increased 50% working load limit and suspension ring pivots 180.
