When deciding between rigging solutions and the type of sling you should use for your job, it’s important to properly address the variables at work. Do you know the exact — or at least approximate — weight of your load? Are there hazardous or corrosive materials being moved or transported? How is your load’s weight distributed? Is it top-heavy? Unbalanced? Will there be a need to perform sustained lifting? Have you used the slings you’re considering in the past?

The Benefits of Synthetic Slings

When it comes to rigging, synthetic round slings offer a distinct advantage over other rigging solutions in many situations. Unlike steel cable and chain rigging, synthetic round slings offer incredible convenience along with their strength. They are light weight and flexible, making a load much more easily rigged, maneuvered, transported, and adjusted. They are easier to store and transport, easier to set up, and often times even cheaper to purchase. Synthetic round slings can also have heavy lifting capacities and do a lot of the same jobs as steel rigging equipment effectively.

They’re not always the right solution, however. So make sure you consult with the experts. 

It’s important that you know what’s right for your job, and so it’s important that you work with expert who can equip you with the right rigging set up. Talk to Olsen Chain & Cable’s team of rigging professionals to determine if synthetic round slings from Olsen can help you do the job in front of you.
