Ring: Forged steel, annealed, bright pink powder coated finish (see details of heat indicator specifications)
Threaded socket head bolt: Steel, European standard
Hex key cover plate: Zinc plated steel
GN 581 swivel lifting eye bolts
offer a high load carrying capacity and are tested to meet high
The nominal values for load capacity in the
table are for the most disadvantageous loading conditions, and are also clearly marked on the ring.
Unlike DIN 580 lifting eye bolts, the GN 581 lifting ring bolt
is captively mounted in the ring housing, yet rotates freely. The hexagon socket head bolt cannot be removed from the ring. The ring can be
positioned in the direction of the load to make use of its optimum
strength. The higher load bearing capacity as compared with
DIN 580 lifting eye bolts permits the use of smaller mounting
Hex key cover plate allows assembly without the need to use tools: inserting the hex key in the hexagon socket of the bolt allows the bolt to be turned by hand.
GN 581 lifting eye bolts comply with Mechanical Engineering Directive 98 / 37 / CE and are BG tested.
