The textile chain
Better lifting, better securing with DoNova®.
Safe working has never been this easy!
The textile chain DoNova® consists of chain linke made of several layers of webbing with the high-performance fiber Dyneema®. This creates unique advantages advantages, because DoNova® is just as tear-resistent as a high-strength steel chain, but has up to 85% less dead weight. With DoNova® the Dyneema® webbing is interlocked and sewn in a so-called Möbius ring. DSM is the inventor and manufacturer of UHMWPE fiber (Ultra High Molecular Weight PolyEthylene), which is marketed under the Dyneema® brand, the world's strongest fiber™. Measured by weight, Dyneema® is 15 times stronger than carbon steel and up to 40% stronger than aramid fibers.

Textile material is gentle on sensitive surfaces
Super flexible, because easily shortenable
Particularly abrasion resistant
Chemical- and seewater-resistant
UV-resistant thanks to "Skin Core Effect"
Repair possibility by Dolezych service team
Replaceability of several steel chains by only one DoNova
The textile lashing chain
Heavy load securement at its best
The DoNova® PowerLash is tested as a lashing chain according to DIN EN 12195-3. The DoNova® PowerLash lashing chain easily takes on high-strength steel chains up to grade 12 and up to nominal size 16 mm. DoNoa PwerLash is available in the following versions, with permissible tensile forces (LC) of up to 20,000 daN. This makes it child's play to secure even heavy loads.
The extreme low weight of DoNova® PowerLash provides for easy handling of heavy duty load securing devices. This enables the handling of longer lashing chains with more than 20 m of usable length even with only one operator.
The flexible textile chain-links can be connected with nearly every high-tensile chain component. In order to shorten the chain a standard high-tensile shackle is sufficient.
This chain is produced in cooperation with DSM and is suitable for heavy use since it is extremely resistant against abrasion, chemicals and seawater.
Problem-solving for all applications
Doleco lashing chain
with ratchet load binder
The ratchet load binder has been specially developed for the textile chain and makes the tensioning and shortenting of DoNova® PowerLash possible. It has a widened hook support (grade 10, WLL 22,000 Lb.) that guarantees a long service life. The lashing hook with the adapted clevis hook mount has likewise been developed for the special shape of the textile chain.
Doleco lashing chain with
lashing strap as tensioning element
DoNova® PowerLash may be used with the lashing strap as tensioning element. In this combination the WLL 22,000 Lb. of the textile chain must be matched to the WLL of the tensioning elements employed (straight pull or loop). The hooks are hooked into the respective chain element.
Doleco head sling
Since the load has no fastening points, it is secured with a sling that runs over the edges. This is called indirect lashing. Usage of DoNova® PowerLash for this application is possible as well.
The DoNova® PowerLash
DoNova® lashing chain is offered as a modular system. This allows it to be configured flexibly for the specific application.
1. Choose the necessary Lashing Capacity for your system:
- 3.000 daN
- 10.000 daN
- 12.500 daN
- 16.000 daN
- 20.000 daN
2. Choose your tensioning element
- DoRa ratchet load binder
- lashing strap binder
3. Choose your end fittings. As standard we have different clevis hooks, which have been specially developed for our DoNova®. If you need other hooks, this is no problem for us, because our coupling links of grade 10 allow the combination of different hooks. Please do not hesitate to contact us!
The textile lifting sling
Perfect for lifting delicate loads
When DoNova® is used as a lifting chain - besides the spectacularly easy handling - the protection of the load is in focus.
The soft and flexible webbing chain is suited perfectly to lift delicate loads or to protect sensitive surfaces from damages by the lifting device.
The DoNova® PowerLift is as powerful as a lifting chain grade 80 with 13 mm diameter. The 25 mm width webbing made of Dyneema® in a single leg DoNova® PowerLift - textile chain sling reaches a carrying capacity of 5000 kg.
With a 4-leg chain sling the WLL is 10.500 kg. Low weight and best handling is guaranteed.
For lifting asymmetric loads DoNova®-PowerLift can be easily shortened with high strength shackles.
