More About Web Slings

These types of slings are utilized in a huge array of operations, from large house removals to manufacturing plants, and warehouses. They are often produced from polyester which is sewn in a specific way to create high strength slings.

There are many advantages to using polyester duplex webbing for lifting slings which include; flexibility, absorbs  shock loads, lightweight, wide load-bearing area, protects delicate surfaces, they are not affected by grease and oil, easy to inspect, virtually hazardous free to the user, they are also ideal to use in explosion hazard areas as they do not produce sparks like a chain sling. These slings are always colour coded regarding their capacity rating making them easy to recognise. Therefore reducing the chance of simple errors, by choosing the incorrect capacity for the job.

Looking after your web slings

Correctly looking after your lifting equipment is crucial. Prior to each use the sling should be checked over for any defects which may affect its performance. These include worn eyes or distorted fittings, cuts, holes, burns or broken stitching. If any of these defects are noticed then the sling should not be used under any circumstances and disposed of. Every six months or so a regularly used sling should be thoroughly inspected and tested by a qualified person and recertified if safe to use. Safety is always the most important aspect to consider when lifting and moving large objects.
