Build a wire rope lifting sling to your specification with a wide choice of styles and fittings.

Our wire rope slings comply with the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations. Wire rope fittings and steel rope are matched up against each other to suit the required load. They go through thorough quality assurances and are clearly labelled to maximise safety. Slinging arrangements are made up to order, in accordance with your specifications.

End Fittings

Various end fittings and end fitting combinations are available for online quotation, where you can choose the complete configuration of the sling that you require. If you require any additional features such as fibre core, or the construction of the wire e.g. 6x36 IWRC, please add this into the additional information box at the end of constructing your wire ropes.

Working Load Limits & Safe Working Loads

The working load limits of slings made from general engineering ropes to BS EN 12385-4 should conform to BS EN 13414-1: 2003. Note that the working load limits shown are based on the assumption that soft-eyes of single-part slings are used over bearing points of not less than twice the normal diameter of the rope. All sling ropes must be ordinary lay.

The Safe Working Load will normally be equal to the Working Load Limit but in some circumstances it may be less e.g. If the sling is used in choke hitch SWL=WLL x 0.8.

BS EN 13414-1 covers only those sling assemblies that have legs of equal nominal length, diameter, construction and tensile grade. While sling assemblies with legs of unequal length may be made up generally in accordance with the requirements of BS EN 13414-1, it must be stressed that their rating requires special consideration by a competent person.

Caution

In all cases, where hooks or shackles are used, the WLL of the hooks and shackles shall never be less than the WLL of the leg which they are fitted to.

Safety recommendations

When using multi-leg sling assemblies, remember that increasing the angles between the legs will increase the load in each leg. Examine all slings before use, and discard any that are defective. Slings which are found to be unfit for use should be destroyed by cutting them up - not put on a refuse dump. ‘Hooking back’ to the leg of a sling is not recommended. The Safe Working Load of slings is affected by the method of usage. Check that the crane hook is positioned over the loads centre of gravity to prevent swinging when the load is being raised. Correct signals, according to the recognised code, should be given to the crane driver. The signals must be given by the person responsible for the lift and nobody else.

Keep the wire rope sling away from welding and flame cutting operations. The Law requires that all lifting tackle must be examined by a competent person at regular intervals. Users should not store away slings and regard them as their own private slinging assemblies, as this could lead to them being overlooked at inspection time.
