Certifications and homologations

Important information

RUD was the first chain factory to gain the German TÜVCERT certificate under DIN EN ISO 9001 for its company management system.

The European standard EN 16662-1 became operative in July 2020 for snow chains for passenger cars up to light duty vehicles in the whole Europe. Some of RUD snow chain models have been already tested and certified according to this standard in general safety and performance requirements.

The snow chains that meet the Austrian standard Ö-Norm V5117 are still recognized in the countries where the Ö-Norm V5117 compliance was required. RUD snow chains fulfil SAE Class “S” (USA standard).

When there is a legal obligation to fit snow chains on heavy duty vehicles, they must comply with the Austrian standard Ö-Norm V5119. RUD snow chains for heavy duty vehicles meet the Austrian standard Ö-Norm V5119.

Laws and regulations can change. Please, always check the local country laws for any obligations, restrictions or limitations regarding the use of snow chains.

All RUD snow chains are engineered in Germany. Major components of RUD chains are objects of German and European patents.

We all know by now that the impact of plastic on the environment and consequently on the human health is devastating. RUD has decided to make its contribution in reducing the plastic use in its products. Its first step is the packaging, converting the plastic cases of some of its snow chains products in totally recyclable appealing carton boxes that show features, information, image of the contained product. Inside the carton box, a waterproof sack will allow to store the chains once used.

RUD moves towards a sustainable future

Is all the plastic really necessary?

Another important contribution is the introduction of the new RUDcompact© ÖKOmat, the first ECO-Friendly snow chain! All non-metallic components are made of bioplastics produced exclusively in Germany from renewable raw materials with 100% certified green electricity, are completely biodegradable and CO2 neutral.

RUD fitting systems at a glance

The simplest and easiest to fit: RUD CENTRAX chains. Everything at a glance. No parts of the chain on the inner side of the wheel.

User-friendly, innovative quick fitting with the unique combination of textile and metal.

Easy fitting thanks to a strong spring-steel hoop. Especially easy to fit on rear-wheel drives.

Practical for front-wheel drives: Compact fitting. Just connect. Easy to tighten.
