Master Links and Assemblies

FRAM is Norway's only manufacturer of Master Links and Master Link Assemblies. We are a significant supplier to the oil and aquaculture industry in Norway. Our products exceed the requirements for the offshore industry.

FRAM has developed its own steel composition together with the best steel mills in Europe. We collaborate with the best steel mills in Europe to obtain the best steel quality. FRAM exclusively uses a peeled surface on the material for the Master Links, so we remove surface defects that will always occur during normal production of bar steel - the result is optimal quality with minimal surface cracking.

FRAM Offshore Master Links are supplied with a powder-coated surface.

FRAM has a high production capacity and good stock. This means that we usually have a short delivery time.

FRAM performs testing on 100% of Master Links in accordance with NS-EN 1677-4.

Quality of Steel

Our suppliers have strict quality standards to adhere to ensure the material we use for production is pure steel that has undergone optimal chemical analyzing. All steel used in our production comes from West European foundries.

Testing, Certification and Traceability

A comprehensive series of quality control tests are implemented in all phases of production as well as final acceptance of finished products. These tests measure strength, Impact toughness, transition temperature, chemical structure of the steel and each individual link has to pass a load test. 100% testing is also carried out on each link after a pre-determined time period post galvanization.

The factory is approved to ISO 9001:2015 standards, with production routines certified to requirements for NS 9415. We also hold additional documented approval related to equipment and procedures required for other areas of the offshore industry. All products have trace marking and can be traced back through the production process and to the material used.
