Each grade of chain is engineered to handle different types of situations. Grade 70 chain is mostly used for the everyday jobs that require a mix of durability and flexibility. They can be used for securement purposes but never for overhead lifting applications. For those types of jobs, the Grade 80 chain is the one to go with. This stronger chain can maintain its grip on the object as it is being lifted overhead. Tougher jobs usually require the heavy-duty strength of the Grade 100 chain, which is manufactured to easily handle the tougher jobs with greater efficiency. For the toughest jobs that require optimized strength, we have Grade 120 chains, which are the strongest chains available in the industry.
