'High Test' - G43
ISO High Test Chain utilizes high strength carbon steel that provides a greater strength-to-weight ratio than Grade 'L' or DIN766 G30 chains. the ISO short pitch link makes it more flexible and ideally suited as a windlass chain.
Each link is calibrated and proof tested for strength.
"Hi-Test" G4 chain is a approximately one third stronger than standard "G30" chain. G4 is fast becoming the most popular chain for use with modern High Holding Power anchors that don't require a heavy chain to work well.
High strength G4 grades of chain can be smaller and thus lighter for a given strength which offers the added benefit of less weight in the bow and the ability to carry an increased amount of rode in the anchor locker. With a large surplus of weight savings, a fraction of this weight could then be invested back into a larger anchor, so forming a system which is both more effective and lighter in terms of total weight.
Check windlass manufacturer’s specification prior to purchase.
