WIRE MESH SLING
Perform in high-demand lifting scenarios with the ability safely grip and lift various hot materials and tolerate high-stress, abrasive wear.
Wire Mesh slings are widely used in metalworking and in other industries where loads are abrasive, hot, or will tend to cut web slings. Unlike nylon and wire rope slings, metal mesh slings resist abrasion and cutting. Metal mesh slings grip the load firmly without extensive stretching, easily maintaining balanced loads.
MAKE A THOROUGH INSPECTION OF SLINGS AND ATTACHMENTS. ITEMS TO LOOK FOR INCLUDE:
Broken wires in any part of the mesh,
Broken weld or broken brazed joint along the sling edge,
Reduction in wire diameter of 25 percent or more due to abrasion or 15 percent or more due to corrosion,
Lack of flexibility due to distortion of the mesh,
Distortion of the choker fitting so that the depth of the slot is increased by more than 10 percent,
Distortion of either end fitting so that the width of the eye opening is decreased by more than 10 percent,
A 15 percent or more reduction of the original cross-sectional area of any point around the hook opening of the end fitting,
Visible distortion of either end fitting out of its plane,
Cracked end fitting,
Sling in which the spirals are locked or without free articulation,
Fittings that are pitted, corroded, cracked, bent, twisted, gouged, or broken, Missing or illegible sling identifications, and
Other conditions that cause doubt as to continued use of the sling.
Damaged mesh is repairable - return
