Challenge’s extensive range of Roller, Leaf, Timber, Agricultural and Conveyor chains not only offer all the manufacturing refinements and life optimising characteristics that today’s engineers and designers expect; they do so without compromise in value or quality.

A full range of attachments are also available as are many types of specially designed chain to suit customer’s specific requirements (e.g., sugar, cement, palm oil, bulk material handling etc).

One of our strongest innovations is our range of both transmission and conveyor chain featuring spin riveted pins.

This makes the Challenge chain range the ideal choice for any new build or replacement application in South Africa.

Challenge transmission chains have a longer life because:

Pins – manufactured from case hardened chrome manganese molybdenum steel. This increases wear resistance with more shock absorption ability.

Pre-stretched – “fit and forget”.

Ball swaged holes – combats fatigue failure.

Shot peened rollers and side plates – reduces fatigue failure.

Deep waisted side plates – increases breaking load and reduces stress.

Solid rollers – prolongs wear life.
