The textile chain

Better lifting, better securing with DoNova®.
Safe working has never been this easy!

The DoNova® textile chain is made of chain links consisting of several layers of high performance webbing made with Dyneema®. That creates unique advantages because DoNova® is strong as high strength steel chain grade but up to 85% lighter. DoNova® is used where quick and efficient lashing or lifting is required. Safe working has never been this easy! And as we rank the security of the working tools first, the textile chain is dekra-certified for variants PowerLash and PowerLift.

  • up to 85% less weight

  • patented construction

  • multilayered redundant system ensures safety

  • Certified by Dekra

  • abrasion and cut resistant material

  • electrically non-conductive

  • floats on water

  • non-corrosive

  • reduces the danger of injury

  • Temperature range from -40 °F (-40°C) to 158°F (70°C)

PowerLash

The textile lashing chain

 

Heavy load securement at its best

When used as a lashing chain DoNova® PowerLash challenges the grade 80 steel chain with nominal thickness 3/8”. Certified by Dekra and with a WLL of 22,000 lbs even the heaviest loads can be secured easily.

The extreme low weight of DoNova® PowerLash provides for easy handling of heavy duty load securing devices. This enables the handling of longer lashing chains with more than 60 feet of usable length even with only one operator.

The flexible textile chain-links can be connected with nearly every high-tensile chain component. In order to shorten the chain a standard high-tensile shackle is sufficient.

This chain is produced in cooperation with DSM and is suitable for heavy use since it is extremely resistant against abrasion, chemicals and seawater.

  • up to 85% less weight

  • protects the load

  • reduces noise

  • More durable since it is extremely abrasion and cut resistant

Problem-solving for all applications

Doleco lashing chain with ratchet load binder

The ratchet load binder has been specially developed for the textile chain and makes the tensioning and shortenting of DoNova® PowerLash possible. It has a widened hook support (grade 10, WLL 22,000 Lb. that guarantees a long service life. The lashing hook with the adapted clevis hook mount has likewise been developed for the special shape of the textile chain.

Doleco lashing chain with lashing strap as tensioning element

DoNova® PowerLash may be used with the lashing strap as tensioning element. In this combination the WLL 22,000 Lb. of the textile chain must be matched to the WLL of the tensioning elements employed (straight pull or loop). The hooks are hooked into the respective chain element.

Doleco head sling

Since the load has no fastening points, it is secured with a sling that runs over the edges. This is called indirect lashing. Usage of DoNova® PowerLash for this application is possible as well.

Your weight savings calculator

The physical stress Decreases significantly with the use of DoNova® PowerLash textile chains significantly. Accidents and downtime of staff can be reduced. With this useful tool you can calculate how much weight you save by using the DoNova® PowerLash instead of conventional steel chains.

The DoNova® PowerLash
Modular System

DoNova® lashing chain is offered as a modular system. This allows it to be configured flexibly for the specific application.

The customer selects the chain length (strands in lengths of 13 and 26 ft. are standard), the number of hooks and tensioner elements required and, if necessary, additional shackles for the connection or shortening of chain strands.
The additional option for the system with clevis hook is a system with coupling links, nominal size 13. The advantage: An eye hook (with at least nominal size 13 and grade 8) can then be attached.

Does DoNova® clevis hook fit your lashing point?

An adapted clevis hook has been specially developed for the textile chain. On the basis of the following figure you can check whether it fits your lashing point. If it doesn’t, an easy solution with a coupling link is possible as the modular system of DoNova® PowerLash allows the highest flexibility. Contact us for more information. We will help you further.

PowerLift

The textile lifting sling

Perfect for lifting delicate loads

When DoNova® is used as a lifting chain - besides the spectacularly easy handling - the protection of the load is in focus.

The soft and flexible webbing chain is suited perfectly to lift delicate loads or to protect sensitive surfaces from damage by the lifting device.

The DoNova® PowerLift is as powerful as a lifting chain grade 80 lifting chain with 3/8” diameter. The 1” width webbing made of Dyneema® in a single leg DoNova® PowerLift - textile chain sling reaches a WLL of 11.000 lbs.

With a 4-leg chain sling the WLL is 23.000 lbs. Low weight and best handling is guaranteed.
For lifting asymmetric loads DoNova®-PowerLift can be easily shortened with high strength shackles.

  • up to 85% less weight

  • easy handling

  • easy to shorten

  • non-conductive
