Leaf Chain

Leaf Chain is the most simple of steel chains, consisting only of link plates and pins. This chain has greater tensile strength than roller chains and runs over sheaves rather than sprockets.

Leaf Chain

They are suitable for hanging, balancing or motion transmitting applications. Leaf chains are often used as counterweight chains for machine tools, elevator and oven doors, fork lift truck masts, spinning frames and similar lifting or balancing applications. Plates are connected by pins and hold the tension loaded on the chain.

Chain & Drives supply Hitachi, GB, Rex, DongBo & Sedis in all types of leaf chain to suit forklifts, drill rigs and industrial equipment.


AL Type

Plate configuration and thickness are the same as ANSI roller chain. Pin diameter is almost the same as ANSI roller chain. AL series (American Light) chain (manufactured to the ANSI B29.9 standard) is constructed from American standard roller chain components. AL series chain is lightweight chain used for light load lifting applications and machine tools.

BL Type

BL Series leaf chains consist of link plates which are thicker and larger in contour than the AL Series link plates of the same pitch. The link plates have the same thickness as the link plates of the next larger pitch size in ANSI roller chains. The pins have the same diameter as those of ANSI roller chains of the next larger pitch.

LL Type

LL series (European Light – Leaf Light) chain, manufactured according to ISO4347, DIN8152 and NFE26107, is constructed from roller chain components to European standard. Like AL series chain, EL-LL series chain is a lightweight chain used for light load lifting applications and machine tools.

Our chains batch serial numbered so it can be tracked back to the manufacturing process. All chain batches manufactured are QA checked before shipment - the material quality, heat treatment, workmanship and chain tensile strength is assured on all sets of Leaf Chain supplied

We supply 1/2" pitch to 3" pitch leaf chain. Including 2x2 lacing, 3x2 lacing, 3x4 lacing, 4x4 lacing, 4x6 lacing, 6x6 lacing and 8x8 lacing.


FB Chain Gauge

The FB Chain wear gauge enables you to track chain wear at each service and take any necessary action. The FB gauge is a ‘how much worn’ chain gauge, showing chain wear in 1/4 percent increments from 0% to 4% worn with a red warning box appearing at 2%.
