Regal Rexnord Kette in Germany has been producing high-quality leaf chains since 1963. We supply our leaf chains to major forklift truck producers including companies like Toyota, KION Group, HysterYale, Konecranes, and others. Regal Rexnord produces Leaf Chains according to ISO 4347, including the BL and AL series (American standard heavy and light series 'LH' and 'AL'), and the European F series chains.

The success of our Rex Leaf Chains is based on an array of factors, including:
  • Use of selected material
  • Structural part design and complex part manufacturing
  • Calibration of the plate bore holes
  • Optimized hardening processes
  • Shot peening of individual parts after hardening
  • Accurate assembly lines
  • High preloading
  • Mechanical and electronical quality checks
  • High-grade initial lubrication
In addition to our leaf chains, Regal Rexnord produces standard chains with customized solutions. These chains are engineered and made to order by the Rex Engineering team. Beyond forklift trucks for transport and logistics, Rex also serves such applications as telescopic cranes, drilling machines and balancer chains between the head and counterweight in tooling machines.


Regal Rexnord also provides an Engineering and Development service. Our Application Engineering team is available for all questions concerning chain selection, chain drive design and support, and training around lubrication and maintenance during the service life. Together with our Design and Development team, we will find a solution for your lifting application.

All Rex Leaf Chains are supplied with a batch number for traceability and on request with the 3.1 certificate according EN 10204. This will declare that the leaf chain is in compliance with the requirements of the order and in which the manufacturer supplies test results. Since chains can be used as a safety element, all Rex Leaf Chains and Roller Chains are signed with the CE Marking of the European machine directive 2006/42/EG. The associated manuals and the declaration of conformity are available as downloads.
