 Chain Tensioners

Leverlink chain tensioners eliminate the need for a sprocket. By removing a sprocket the chain life is immediately extended as it removes the wear caused by engagement between the sprocket and chain.

Replacing a sprocket in hard to reach areas that can be several stories up is not an easy task. A polymer tensioning block weights less than 5 kg, compared to a sprocket that may be over 30 kgs.

As the Polymer tensioning blocks have an extremely low coefficient of friction, the unit can outlast a sprocket by at least 5 times. Once the block needs replacing, it can be rotated 90 degrees and the life is extended again.
