Which Sling Do I Choose?

Both web slings and round slings are ideal for protecting delicate or highly finished products while lifting. Their synthetic properties make them both light weight and easy to handle. These slings are also non-conductive, making them safe for use in explosive atmospheres.

Flat Web Slings

  • Web slings adjust well to load contour.
  • Web slings are available in wide widths which provide greater surface contact aiding load control during lifting.
  • Web slings are colour coded for quick identification of Working Load Limit.
  • Locally manufactured web slings are available with various eye types (flat eyes, reduced eyes, reduced and reversed eyes) to suit the connection hardware being used or the type of lift. E.g.: flat eyes allow the web sling to be more easily passed under items such as pallets.
  • Multiple sleeve options available for protecting flat web sling fibres from damage

Round Slings

  • Round slings are constructed from a continuous loop of polyester yarn enclosed within a woven sleeve.
  • Round slings allow the wear points to be moved around to extend sling life.
  • Round slings are extremely pliable with limited stretch.
  • Round slings comply with the shape of any load to grip securely.
  • The round sling cover protects the internal load bearing yarns from UV degradation.
  • Round slings offer very good shock absorbency.
  • Round slings are light weight and colour coded for quick identification of Working Load Limit.
  • Round slings are available with considerably higher Working Load Limits than flat web slings.
