Chains & Accessories

A traditional ship's anchor gear usually consists of the anchor, the anchor capstan or anchor winch and a chain that fits on the chain wheel. The anchor chain should be standardised and certified for seagoing use. Many anchor chains from our range are calibrated and true to gauge according to DIN standard 766 A. Anchor chains are also offered in different quality classes. For example, 10mm chains of quality class 2 have a breaking load of 4000 daN. Same chains of quality class 3 can withstand 5000 daN.

… offer excellent protection against corrosion, which is essential in seawater. Stainless steel anchor chains or forerunner chains, e.g. made of material 1.4462, have very high corrosion resistance. Hardly any seabed sediments stick to the chain's smooth surface. In addition, stainless steel chains fall easily and collect nicely in the chain locker. For connecting anchor and chain, jaw and eye shackles or swivel shackles are recommended. So, when catching up the anchor, the chain cannot twist and runs into the chain sprocket without problems. When anchoring, it is also advisable to relieve the capstan. For this purpose, a rope chain stopper can be attached using a chain hook or chain gripper. In addition to chain grabbers, Toplicht offers anchor chain accessories such as chain repair links and chain markers.
