Load chains are designed to move/lift the largest loads whilst featuring the smallest possible dimensions. In contrast to drive and conveyor chains, a load chain does not run around sprockets as a closed strand but is often open, with two ends. One end is attached to the load and the other to a fixed point. Leaf chains of a fork lift truck are an example for such a design.
