|About Maillon Rapides|
Maillon Rapides are very strong in comparison to karabiners of similar bar diameters. Their different shapes are designed to accommodate different load characteristics, i.e. multi-directional loads or wide areas of loading (webbing). Please ask for a manufacturer's specification sheet if unsure of correct usage. WLL: Working Load Limit, one fifth of manufacturers stated breaking load. Higher loadings or wrongly applied loadings will cause distortion or failure. Maillons marked 'PPE' have been certified 'CE' to the Personal Protective Equipment Directive.
