Stainless Steel Shackles are available in a standard Dee or U shape format or a more open, rounded, pear shape referred to as a Bow Shackle.

Dee shackles tend to be narrower than Bow which may be beneficial where space is restricted.
The more open rounded configuration of a Bow Shackle is better suited to taking angled or lateral loads.
Bow shackles are therefore generally used for Anchoring and Mooring applications.

Jimmy Green Marine stock a wide range of stainless steel shackles for either general onboard purpose or load critical applications e.g. Anchoring, Mooring, Rigging

Stainless Steel generally refers to a wide range of iron alloys with a minimum of 10.5% chromium and additional alloying elements which improve corrosion or oxidation resistance, formability, strength and cryogenic toughness e.g. Nickel, Molybdenum, Titanium, Copper, Carbon, Nitrogen

Marine Grade Stainless Steel should be corrosion resistant in a sea water environment and has a much higher chromium content at 16-18%

Grade 316 stainless steel is generally regarded as the minimum standard for marine use but is not wholly resistant to staining in warm sea water
The molybdenum content in Grade 316 delivers better overall corrosion resistant properties than Grade 304
316 Grade may exhibit surface corrosion in a marine environment, normally apparent as brown staining and mainly evident in crevices or on a rough surface finish.

Grade 316L is the low carbon, higher grade version of 316
316L is immune from sensitisation (grain boundary carbide precipitation)
