Steel, German Material No. 1.6541

  • forged
  • high-tensile tempered
  • 100 % electro magnetic tensile tested to EN 1677
  • phosphated

Lifting points GN 589 are distinguished for their very low dimensions. They provide high dynamic and static strength and can be load from any direction with approved safety (safety factor 4) for all loading directions.

The rated load carrying capacity listed in the above table is clearly marked on the lifting point. It applies to the most unfavourable load application of the load types listed opposite

Lifting points GN 589 comply with Mechanical Engineering Directive 2006 / 42 / EG.
