We supply AL Type, LL Type, BL Type and Accessories

They are suitable for hanging, balancing or motion transmitting applications. Leaf chains are often used as counterweight chains for machine tools, elevator and oven doors, fork lift truck masts, spinning frames and similar lifting or balancing applications. Plates are connected by pins and hold the tension loaded on the chain.

Chain & Drives supply Zexus formerly known as (Senqcia & Hitachi), Rexnord, DongBo, IWIS, Transdrive & Sedis in all types of leaf chain to suit forklifts, drill rigs and industrial equipment.  

AL Type

Plate configuration and thickness are the same as ANSI roller chain. Pin diameter is almost the same as ANSI roller chain. AL series (American Light) chain (manufactured to the ANSI B29.9 standard) is constructed from American standard roller chain components. AL series chain is lightweight chain used for light load lifting applications and machine tools.

BL Type

BL Series leaf chains consist of link plates which are thicker and larger in contour than the AL Series link plates of the same pitch. The link plates have the same thickness as the link plates of the next larger pitch size in ANSI roller chains. The pins have the same diameter as those of ANSI roller chains of the next larger pitch.

LL Type

LL series (European Light – Leaf Light) chain, manufactured according to ISO4347, DIN8152 and NFE26107, is constructed from roller chain components to European standard. Like AL series chain, EL-LL series chain is a lightweight chain used for light load lifting applications and machine tools.

Our chains batch serial numbered so it can be tracked back to the manufacturing process. All chain batches manufactured are QA checked before shipment – the material quality, heat treatment, workmanship and chain tensile strength is assured on all sets of Leaf Chain supplied

We supply 1/2″ pitch to 3″ pitch leaf chain. Including 2×2 lacing, 3×2 lacing, 3×4 lacing, 4×4 lacing, 4×6 lacing, 6×6 lacing and 8×8 lacing.
