SYNTHETIC ROUND SLINGS

A wide range of strength-tested synthetic round slings that can safely handle a variety of size, type and capacities of loads.

 USE & CARE

  • Do not use wire rope slings with loads above the rated load capacities on the tag.
  • Store slings away from potential mechanical or chemical damage, sunlight, ultraviolet light and extreme temperatures.
  • Properly hitch slings, pad sharp edges, balance loads, don’t drag slings, keep them free of knots or twists and don’t pull a sling from under a load when the load is on the sling. 
  • Inspect slings daily and according to OSHA-approved ASME guidelines. 

PRE-OPERATIONAL, DAILY INSPECTIONS

All slings must be checked daily by the sling operator before the first use of each shift.
Here are some items to check daily:

  • Check that ID tags are not missing or unreadable
  • Check for melted, charred or weld-splattered areas
  • Check for acid or alkali burns
    Check for broken or damaged fittings
  • 
Check for excessive abrasive wear or elongation
  • Check for knots or brittle areas
