Load shackles

Scotload's innovative load shackles are ideal for lifting and weighing applications where there is limited headroom.

Our load shackles are manufactured from GN or Van Beest shackles as standard, but other manufacturers are available on request. We provide a fully stainless steel construction (excluding bow) up to 85 tonnes as standard, and fully stainless steel construction for 120 tonnes and above upon request.

We have a large range of shackles available in stock up to 1000 tonnes for purchase or hire, and ready for immediate dispatch. Larger capacities are available on request and all of our load shackles are supplied with full calibration and proof load certificates.

Available options:

Subsea load shackle:

Scotload's subsea load shackles are available as a 'D' or 'Bow' shackle body with load centralising bobbins, plug and socket extensions, displays and signal conditioning units with a robust carry case.

Specially designed for use in underwater applications, our load shackles are supplied with subcon connectors and deep sea protection, so they are unaffected by the outside water pressure whilst remaining sensitive in the intended load measuring direction.

How long will it take to dispatch?

Most of our stock is already in stock, available for immediate dispatch. Larger capacity load cells will often take around 2-3 weeks until dispatch. If you need it sooner than this, please contact us for more information – an express service is available.

What is the range of your wireless system?

With SmartLoad®, you can achieve 350m (direct line of sight) using our wireless handset. If you need more than this, SmartLoad® also offers a range of transmitters and receivers to enable you to receive load out information well over 3000m. And if you need further than this, our wall mounted display also offers output via Ethernet, meaning you can essentially relay this information anywhere on the globe with an internet connection.

What connections does SmartLoad® have?

None. Our system is fully wireless (we do have wired version which are not SmartLoad® variants). That being said, these can be connected to either a PC or wall mounted display (options) which offers a range of standard connections you can utilize.

Is a calibration certificate supplied?

Yes – a full calibration certificate is supplied, valid for 1 year from date of issue 

Do I have a warranty with my load cell?

Yes – a standard 1 year manufacturer’s warranty is included. For extended warranty packages, please contact us for more information. 

Is it shipped with batteries?

For UK orders, yes. For orders overseas, we recognize that often the batteries will actually delay being processed in customs and therefore we do not ship these with batteries. If you would like these however, please state this and we will ensure they are shipped along with your load cell.
