RFID - Chains of Command

10th September 2013

"The RUD Group is a leading supplier and manufacturer of chain systems and components covering multiple industries including the international oil and gas sector. Based in Germany and owned by the Rieger family, its roots stretch back to 1875 when Carl Rieger and Friedrich Dietz established Rieger und Dietz (RUD) a company to meet local needs. Today the RUD group has expanded its presence to 14 manufacturing plants and 17 sales offices across all continents.

RUD Maxi lifting chains up to 126 tons

9th September 2013

"When handling loads with RUD VIP Sling chains in diameter 22mm at 42 t using an equalizer, the application possibility has so far ended up at 54 t. During the last years, there had been an obvious tendency versus increasing heavier loads. This higher load range has thereby mainly been covered by wire ropes and synthetic slings. The advantage of a lighter design and a cheaper price of the wire rope on one hand is accompanied by the disadvantage of a high sensitivity versus sharp edges, increased space requirement with storage and the missing shortening possibility on the other hand.

SECURETECH 'GRIP V' Snow Chains saved our lives!

12th August 2013

Thanks Richard for sending in the photos and we are glad to hear that you are all ok!

"Only got to use the snow chains a short distance on the pass but they saved our lives - before we fitted them we nearly slid off one corner and down a cliff. Stopped the slide - put the chains on and then used them to get up the last 8 corners on the ice. Worked well. Lots of people stuck there - told them all where to find you. :-)" - Richard Frost
