Lifting slings: one of the most commonly used types of lifting equipment, and an invaluable tool for completing lifts safely and efficiently. Lifting slings can be used with many other kinds of lifting equipment, increasing capacity and helping to provide more support for a load.
There are three main types of lifting slings that you can choose: chain slings, wire rope slings, and polyester slings. Here, we will help you understand how each type of sling is used, what the differences are between them, and which type of lifting sling will be compatible with your lifting equipment.
Chain slings can be used for a variety of functions within construction and industry. You can select from 1,2,3 and 4-leg chain slings, with capacities of up to 35 Tonnes. Some of the features you might select include:
• C hooks
• Self-locking hooks
• Sling hooks with integrated safety catches
We have grade 8, 10 and 12 chain slings, available in any lengths that you might need.
Wire rope slings
We supply wire rope slings that are single leg, 2 leg, 3 leg or 4 leg, with various end fittings to meet your needs. These can include soft eyes, thimble eyes and masterlinks (standard on any sling that has 2 legs or more.) You can lift large capacities with our wire rope slings – up to 72.9 Tonnes when using a 4-leg model.
We offer two types of polyester sling: webbing slings and round slings. They can have up to a 200 Tonne capacity, and can be up to 50 metres in length. We can source slings and custom make them to your specifications with very quick turnaround times, and we can supply them in any volume that you require. We supply duplex slings as standard but you can opt for simplex slings, flat belt slings and single use disposable cargo webbing slings on request.
