Lifting Chains and Slings

Round Slings

Round slings have become an industry standard and offer great flexibility for many applications. Manual handling benefits over chain and wire rope add significantly to workplace safety.

Optimum round slings are manufactured from 100% polyester yarn hank, wound continuously together in the form of an endless sling. The hank is protected by a  100% polyester tubular sleeve. The outer sleeving is entirely non-load bearing and serves both to protect and consolidate the polyester core. The roundsling flattens in use to provide a secure grip on the load. The unique SupraPlus monofilament weft gives a longer service life due to greater resistance to wear and damage.
