Roller Chain vs. Cable

Sky Hook with Roller Chain

All Sky Hook models are offered in both roller chain and cable configurations. Each configuration has unique benefits which may make all the difference depending on the lifting application. From the first Sky Hooks built in 1969, roller chain has been the primary lifting tether for these one of a kind hoist lifting devices. Even though cable is definitely more of an industry standard for lifting, roller chain has benefits that have to be considered before making the determination as to which is best suited for your application.

Sky Hook with cable
Back to Top!

Roller chain offers a consistent rate of travel as the chain passes over a set sprocket size and is stored in the vertical tube of the Sky Hook. Cable on the other hand stacks up on a spool, slightly increasing the amount of force required to lift the load as more of the cable is reeled in. However cable is typically quicker and easier to inspect. Many larger corporations require cable for all internal lifting devices.

Both the roller chain and cable are load rated to meet applicable safety standards. No matter which you choose, you’re sure to end up with a compact lifting device that will have a smooth and seamless operation.
