Manufactured from high tenacity 100% fibre Polyester to BS EN
1492-2 and conforming to "The Supply of Machinery (Safety)
regulations" 1992 (S1 1992/3073).
The load bearing fibres are wound together to form an endless hank.
The Working Load Limit (WLL) is determined by the number of turns
in the hank. The hank is protected by a polyester, non load
bearing, seamless cover which protects and consolidates the load
bearing fibres. Internal damage to these fibres is almost
impossible without first damaging the outer sleeve.
These slings have a high strength to weight ration and are a cost
effective lifting sling. The material is soft to touch and
therefore is less likely to cause the type of damage associated
with a wire rope sling or chain and are generally lighter in weight
than both wire rope or chain slings, therefore this type of lifting
sling is generally much easier to handle.
With a 'Factor Of Safety' of 7:1, this range of slings are colour
coded, identifying the relevant WLL (Working Load Limit) and are
individually labelled with a unique ID/Serial Number, WLL/Capacity,
length and date of manufacture.
- Colour coded to easy recognise the capacity,
- Light and flexible,
- Ability to absorb shock loads,
- Twist or kink resistant,
- Ideal for choke application,
- Easy to inspect and Low extension.
- Failure to comply with this warning may result in serious load
damage and death or injury.
- Use only if trained.
- Can fail if damaged, misused or overloaded.
- Inspect sling for damage before each use.
- Always protect sling webbing from sharp edges of load.
- Do not attempt to use sling above rated lifting capacity.
- Do not use sling if rated capacity tag is removed or unreadable.
- Avoid acid, alkali and sunlight.
- Do not tie knots in sling webbing as strength is greatly reduced.
- Do not use sling if there are any signs of cut webbing,heat or
chemical damage, excessive wear, or other defects.
- Consult sling load chart for basket hitch capacity reduction due to
- Do not try to repair sling by yourself
