Camelback Chain | Transfer Chains


Camelback chains are manufactured in a way that allows for bulk material handling and transporting of product. The name camelback chain was used for this style of the chain because of its ability to carry heavy concentrated loads. Typically these chains will carry lumber, boxes, barrels, crates and much more! Commonly the chain is run in troughs with two or more parallel strands with only the top portion of the links protruding. We stock the widest range of camelback chains, ranging from cast, steel, and even plastic, our extensive inventory is designed so that our customers don't have to search multiple sources to find the specific camelback chain needed. We also have a Made in USA line of camelback chains and can produce custom made-to-order styles upon request.

Note: Camelbak chain is also commonly referred to as "Rooftop Chain".
