Lofrans Grade 40 Calibrated Hot Dip Galvanised Anchor Chain

Sourced exclusively from Lofrans, renowned worldwide for their range of top quality windlasses.

Lofrans is based in Monza, Italy.

Lofrans have been producing top quality windlasses for over 50 years and now they have the chain to match.

The Lofrans manufacturing process is certified to ISO9001 quality standard 

Lofrans Grade 40 Anchor Chain is Proof Load Tested twice during manufacture.
The first proof load is conducted while the chain is still in semi-finished form and the second test is conducted after the galvanising process as a final check before it is released for packing onto pallets.

Lofrans Hot Dip Galvanising is a top quality in-house batch process which delivers a galvanising layer thickness ranging from 60 to 120 microns.


Lofrans Grade 40 chain is clearly stamped LFR at regular intervals as testimony to their belief in the quality of their chain


The LFR Logo is hallmarked into the chain using a special stamping machine as shown in the picture:

Jimmy Green Quality Control and Accountability Process for Anchor Chain

Every length of Lofrans chain is quality checked when it arrives into stock, labelled with the manufacturer, the date received to create a corresponding batch number.
The apprpriate batch number is then recorded at each point of sale.
Every chain order is therefore traceable and accountable to the manufacturer Test Certificate.

A copy of the corresponding Lofrans Test Certificate is available with your order on request
