1. Mounting bracket made of steel 2. Noise-reducing, optional –10 dB(A) 3. Glide surfaces, long travels 4. Chip protection 5. NC no camber 6. Rugged, high forcesdue to "tongue and groove" 7. Locking separator with reverse sidescale 8. Straight run due to inner-/outer-link design 9. Quiet operation due to integrated "brake"
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 100 mm (at 5 kg/m additional load), this should be observed for all types of applications.Please consult igus® if space is particurlarly restricted.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.
Pitch per link: = 5.63”(143 mm)
Links per ft (m): = 2.13 (7)
For center mount applications:
Chain length = s/2 +K
The unsupported length is dependent on the additional load X-axis: Unsupported length in m FLB/FLG
Y-axis Additional load in kg/ft
Lower scale: Travel S in ft
FLB = unsupported with permitted sag FLG = unsupported with straight upper run
starting at 12m up to max. 450mChain length = S/2+K2Long travels - gliding (up to max. 450m) In this case, the e-chain® upper runglides on the lower run in a guide trough. We recommend the project planning of such a system to be undertaken by our technicians. For travels between 10 and 12 m we recommend a larger unsupported E-Chain®.

Other installation types
Variant 1: Standard
Please maintain a lateral spacing of 1.26” (32 mm) for E-Tube and .63” (16 mm) for E-Chains® between the separators
and the side links. In the standard configuration separators are assembled every 2nd E-Chain® link
Slotted separator 6005
This separator can be retrofitted into an
existing interior separation system without
removing the shelves. The top and bottom
botches cannot be occupied by shelves
This component is used to form the basic
pattern of a shelf system.
Side plate 6002
same as separators. Allows a rack-like division up to the side links. No minimum gap necessary! This component is used to form the basic
pattern of a shelf system. Allows modular
shelving close to the side links.
Intermediate shelf 420-X
These components form the basic pattern
of a shelf system. Shelves of various
widths can be arranged at 7 different
heights in .28” (7mm) increments
