Forged steel eyebolts grade 4 for general lifting purposes

Status : Current   Published : May 2011



What is this standard about?

This is the latest edition of this international standard which relates to specific eyebolts, to be used for general lifting purposes.

Who is this standard for?

  • Suppliers, users, manufacturers and testers of forged steel eyebolts
  • The construction, structural engineering and building industries
  • Manufacturing industries, oil and gas, energy and chemical plants
  • Shipbuilding industry

Why should you use this standard? 

BS EN ISO 3266 specifies the general characteristics, performance and critical dimensions necessary for interchangeability and compatibility with other components, of forged steel eyebolts grade 4, which can be used for axial and inclined loading.

It outlines the dimensions of the eyes of the eyebolts permitting direct connection with shackles of the same working load limit as those defined in BS EN ISO 2415. These dimensions also allow designs with a large eye which can permit direct connection with sling hooks of similar working load limit. 

The standard also covers all hazards and hazardous situations relevant to grade 4 eyebolts and is applicable to eyebolts in use in the temperature range of -20°C to 200°C.

What’s changed since the last update?

  • This is the second edition of BS EN ISO 3266 and replaces the 2010 standard
  • It has been systematically reviewed by experts, who have taken into consideration recent material, technological and industry developments
