British Standard Attachment Chain

Tsubaki’s British Standard roller chains are manufactured to the following standards:

  • International Standards Organization (ISO 606)
  • British Standards Institution (BS 228)
  • Deutsches Institut fur Normung (DIN 8187)

Tsubaki produces standard attachments for sizes RS08B to RS16B in standard steel, stainless steel, nickel plated, NEP coating and self-lubricating Lambda series.  


  • Easy disassembly/cutting.
  • Ring coining that makes the connecting link as strong as the rest of the links in the chain.
  • Solid rollers, bushes and link plates resulting in improved durability at high speed and increased fatigue strength.
  • Center sink design of the rivet head.
  • Wider link plate design.
  • Pre-stressed chain to ensure all components are properly seated.
