LiftingSafety Offers online in our synthetic (Man-made fibre) sling category lifting slings designed to be light weight and help prevent (minimize) damage to the items being lifted. A synthetic webbing sling is also often referred to by a variety of names such as lifting strap/strop, belt sling, polyester lifting sling, flat web/web lifting sling, belt webbing, woven sling, simplex or duplex sling, round webbing and sling endless slings. They are also sometimes wrongly referred to as nylon lifting straps/strops. Soft slings like this are either made as duplex or simplex flat web or endless round slings, both are made from the same core materials, which is typically polyester or Dyneema. Polyester and Dyneema are both synthetic (man-made) materials; polyester units are light weight and very competitively priced; Dyneema are extremely lightweight and compact offering a greater working load limit than polyester. This feature makes the Dyneema a little more expensive than a standard polyester sling, although Dyneema lifting slings start to re-pay their original extra purchase cost as soon as they are put to work lifting heavy loads increasing productivity and the time savings for heavy loads can be massive because they are so compact, lightweight and easy to handle.
LiftingSafety’s lifting shackle category offers a very comprehensive online rage. Lifting Shackles are connection link, used to make a connection between the load lifting device (hoist hook / sling) and the load to be lifted. There are two main shapes / styles of lifting shackle and they are “D” Shackles (or Dee Shackle) and bow shackles otherwise known as Omega shackles. The shackles we offer are galvanized, self colour (forged black steel) and made from stainless steel. As a general rule the galvanised steel lifting shackles tend to be US Federation specification alloy steel lifting shackles and the Black Forged steel lifting shackles tend to be High Tensile to BS3032. (This is usually the case though not always as both types can be self colour or galvanised). Dimensionally the US Fed spec anchor shackles are physically far small than the black self colour high tensile shackles while still maintaining the same safe working load. The load pin on a lifting shackle is fastened to the shackle body in different ways; there is screw pin where the pin screws into the body of the shackle like a bolt and safety pin shackles where the pin passes through the body of the shackle then is captivated by either a split pin or nut c/w split pin. We also offer a great range of stainless steel lifting shackles, ROV shackles, hydraulic remote release shackles and wide body shackles.

They are often used suspended from a hook for lifting equipment application s though just as often used for pulling applications. A number of snatch blocks can be rigged multi reeved to increase the capacity (SWL). The more times the wire line is reeved through a snatch block / crane block the greater the safe lifting capacity of the hoist or winch that is pulling the wire rope. This is why crane blocks are reeved many times, to increase the capacity. On the negative side every time the wire line is reeved the lifting speed is reduced by 50%.
