Grade-8 Lifting Eyenuts

We supply quality Australian made Grade-8 Eyenuts. Townley’s range of Grade-8  Eyenuts offer up to 4 times higher lifting capacity in certain applications.

Geometry is designed around the DIN582 which presents a larger interal eye diameter across the range

WLL (WORKING LOAD LIMIT)

Each Eye Nut is clearly stamped with the permitted F2 WLL.
F2 WLL – indicates safe use for non-axial lifts. This is where the load is not in line with the axis of the thread. The following care must be taken to ensure safe use:

  • The mechanical properties of the threaded rod or bolt to be screwed into the eyenut shall be of adequate strength. The minimum required strength shall be no less than 800 MPa.The tapped hole has adequate depth to accommodate the screwed shank of the eyebolt.
  • The undersurface of the collar of the eyenut and the contacting surface of the load are smooth and flat and at right angles to the axis of the tapped holeThe eyenut is not excessively tightened during fitting
  • The thread used with the eyenut has not been damaged in a manner likely to reduce the strengthF1 WLL is not stamped on the eyebolt, however this WLL indicates loads which are in line with the axis of the threaded end of the eyenut. F1 WLL allows up to four (4) times higher lifting capacity whilst maintaining a 4:1 design factor of safety.

This higher lifting capacity is dependent on the following:

  • The mechanical properties of the threaded rod or bolt to be screwed into the eyenut shall be of adequate strength.
  • The minimum required strength shall be no less than 800 MPa.
  • The tapped hole has adequate depth to accommodate the screwed shank of the eyebolt.
  • The undersurface of the collar of the eyenut and the contacting surface of the load are smooth and flat and at right angles to the axis of the tapped hole
  • The eyenut is not excessively tightened during fitting
  • The thread used with the eyenut has not been damaged in a manner likely to reduce the strength
  • Please refer to the user instruction for detailed information on care in use.
