We know that many are concerned with the use of plastic materials and the effect it has on the
environment as well as our health. Mr. Chain shares that concern and has reformulated all of our colors
to be free of heavy metals. Our products still contain agents to resist fading and protect the integrity
of the product. No worries when using our plastic chain and stanchions!
Sleepy Hollow, new on Fox this season, is the modern version of Washington Irving's, Ichabod Crane. What better to contain the Headless Horseman than some 4" and 5" plastic chain from Mr. Chain! Check our chain's debut in the video below and tune in Mondays at 9/8c for all the chain action!
With all the hype about creating American jobs, we invite you to explore this avenue presented by Alex and Ana Bogusky.
As the video states: "It's as simple as this, every time you buy something, make sure its made in America. But you have to pay attention, sometimes even if you think the brand is American, even if there is an America flag on the package, it may not be made here."
Mr. Chain is proud to bring you American-made plastic chain and stanchions for 53 years. Contact us for more information today, and join the pledge to "buy 5% more US-made product and share this video with two people."
Earlier this year Keep America Beautiful (“KAB”) and the Ad Council launched the “I Want to Be Recycled” campaign aiming to motivate recycling in American households. The campaign features common household products for recycling and what they can become once recycled. These include a milk bottle becoming a park bench or a tin can becoming part of a bicycle. “The Ad Council and KAB say that other EPA data indicates only about 35 percent of the 250 million tons of trash Americans generate annually is recycled.” (Source: In the Hopper: SPI’s Business Blog).
Recycling is an initiative in Mr. Chain’s sustainability policy and we urge all customers to recycle products at the end of their life. Plastic chain and stanchions made of HDPE are #2 recyclable. Polystyrene used to make our Ground Stakes, Reels, and Edging is #6 recyclable.
Visit IWantToBeRecycled.org to learn more about the campaign and find a recycling center near you.
The 2013 NSC Congress & Expo was a huge success for Mr. Chain! Connecting with customers and showcasing the new Magnet Ring/Carabiner Kit were among the highlights. There were also many stanchions to see, including the new and improved X-Treme Duty Stanchion, and the ever popular 2" Yellow Chain. Mr. Chain also unveiled an entirely new booth as seen below.
Product development often begins with an idea and many hours of drawing and planning. When Mr. Chain’s drawings are complete we take them to local mold maker, American Die and Mold of Buckley, Michigan. We are all very excited when the finish mold is delivered to the shop and are very close to seeing the product itself. Foreman Rob Baker and Vice President Dennis Stacey run the first shot. There is always a lot to learn about a new mold. Most always, the temperature of the material needs to be adjusted. In some cases the mold will even go back to American Die and Mold a few times before we have the final version capable of producing superior products. As you can see from the series of pictures below of Mr. Chain’s Carabiner, the shots begin to look much better as adjustments are made. The product is now ready for distribution.
This American- made, original M R Products' design is strong and durable yet light for shipping. The stanchion has a variety of features for ease of use. Equipped with a water bladder that can hold approximately two gallons of water, the stanchion is ideal for heavy-duty, industrial uses. The ribbed handle combined with wheels located on the base make the stanchion highly portable, empty or full. When not in use, the stacking bases store with ease. The stanchion weighs approximately 25 lbs. when full of water.
The X-Treme Duty Stanchion will easily accommodate Mr. Chain's 2”, 2" Heavy Duty, and 3" chain. With a keyhole slot and built-in c-hooks, chain can be run in one continuous length or cut to specific lengths.
Mr. Chain will be exhibiting at the NSC Show from September 30, 2013 to October 2, 2013. Stop by booth #1100 to see the X-Treme!
