Lifting slings appear in a wide range of shapes, sizes and materials, here at Rope Services Direct we can manufacture and supply most types to your precise specifications. From web slings to chain slings, wire rope slings to round slings, fibre rope slings and much more.
Types of Lifting Slings
We have our own clean workshop with industrial cutting and sewing machinery which enables us to manufacture custom products. Examples include web slings, round slings, one way slings / single use slings, endless slings and more. Webbing materials come in a range of widths, and colours to suit the safe working load required. Webbing can be made into lifting slings, straps and strops which may have soft eyes or be endless. Other fittings may be stitched in during manufacture. We also produce wear sleeves or protective sleeves to suit any sling. Sleeves help with wear reduction in high stress areas and essentially extending the working life of your sling.
Fibre Rope Lifting Slings
We can supply many types of fibre ropes such as natural manila, sisal, cotton, or man-made polypropylene, nylon and polyester, we have skilled people on our team who can hand splice these ropes the traditional way. We can also add soft eyes, add thimbles and supply hooks to be used as tow rope kits.
Wire Rope Lifting Slings
Wire rope slings are another of our specialities. Options include galvanized wire rope or stainless steel wire rope. Multi-leg wire rope slings, soft eye or thimble eye wire rope slings and endless wire rope slings are just a few ore in our range. RSD can also add protective coatings to the wire for added protection for special lifting operations. Chain slings can be supplied with a termination of your choice.
People use lifting slings in a vast range of industries and environments on a daily basis. Without them simple lifting tasks would be longer, slower and much more labour intensive. Look after your lifting slings carefully and they will look after you. Using worn webbing slings can be dangerous as can using wire rope with broken wires. Checks should be completed for potential problems before every use. Competant personnel should carry out thorough inspections on lifting slings every 6 months. This is in accordance with the latest laws and guidelines. The Team at Rope Services Direct can carry out such thorough examinations by LOLER approved, trained members.
