Chains for boats
The chains used for boating, can have links of different width and shape, are normally hooked to the anchor
and are offered with essential accessories, such as windlasses
, chain distributor and chain lock. They are a fundamental accessory, often underestimated with respect to its importance: it is precisely to the chain (and obviously to the anchor) that the boat is docked during the mooring phase, and it is the chain that must ensure the necessary (and high) resistance to loads and resistance over time.
In particular, if you use an adequately heavy chain, adequately long and laid on the bottom, the movements transmitted by the boat to the anchor (as well as the pitch) will be decidedly less, the fiction of the chain is in fact that of shock absorber
of these movements. This is why the chains must be chosen appropriately, both in terms of measures
(depending on the backdrops where you will moor) and the materials
used for its construction.
Anchor chains with ISO or DIN standards
European standards usually follow ISO standards. For various sizes of chains such as those of diameter 6 and 8
there are no differences between ISO and DIN, while the difference is with regard to chains with a diameter of 10 mm. In fact, for the DIN 766 chains, the pitch is 28 mm while for the ISO it is 30 mm.
