Slings are the most popular lifting equipment used for safe loading of the different goods.
Polyester round lifting slings had their origins in the Scandinavian countries and began making their way to the Western Hemisphere in the mid-seventies. There is a unique advantage endless polyester roundslings have over eye and eye configuration slings. The endless configuration is more versatile because the connection and load contact points can be rotated, enhancing sling service life. Another key advantage for polyester round lifting slings is that many slings can be made simultaneously.
Due to the manufacturing efficiencies, polyester roundslings will generally be less expensive than nylon rigging straps. Because the body of polyester roundslings is comprised of multiple windings of polyester yarn, the sling body is soft and supple. The supple body prevents the polyester roundsling from locking to the load or binding at the point of choke when polyester round slings are used in a choker hitch. Polyester roundslings are color coded, but never rely upon color to determine roundsling strength.
Round lifting slings Safety Practices
Working/loading capacity must be indentified from its identification tag. The outer sheath which encapsulates the load carrying yarns on polyester round slings is a double wall thickness material. They are provided with a contrasting color inner sheath to alert the user that the outer cover has been breached.
Remember, when you see inner load carrying yarns, you cannot use the sling. An outer bulked nylon cover can also be provided which is four times more abrasion resistant than normal polyester covers. If you see undamaged yarn it is not allowed to repair it. Equipment must be protected from ultraviolet during storage.
How to store
When your nylon and polyester equipment are not in use, store them in a dark, dry, cool location that is free from mechanical and environmental damage.
They are produced from 1 000 kg. to 40 000 kg. rated vertical capacities and can be made from 0.5 m to over 45 m in length. The length f is always measured from one end or bearing point of the body to the other.
