About Polyester Round Slings for Lifting
Polyester is a Synthetic man made material that is lightweight and is a certified lifting sling to conform with EN 1492-2:2000 it makes a very cost effective lifting sling that is soft to touch and much less likely to cause damage the material being lifted; it will not cause the type of injuries to the user associated with wire rope sling (cuts caused by broken wires, manual handling or impact injuries). Round lifting slings are more compact and lightweight than both wire rope or chain slings (Dyneema is lighter and stronger) and as a result is much easier to handle.
Fibre round slings are comparatively cheap compared to most alternative lifting slings and tend to be more flexible, lighter, and have a better FOS, the end result being that the customer tends to save money with the purchase and achieves greater productivity from staff operating.
On the negative side endless slings do have less abrasive resistance though this can be overcome by using a wear sleeve made from either polyester or from polyurethane (round the sling or bonded onto the sling, Secutex for example). Other alternative method to provide sling protection would be to use steel end fitting such as a Joker hook or Grade 80/100 master rings and hooks; or the use of corner protectors, contact us for further alternatives.
