Accidents caused by falls are one of the leading causes of injuries and deaths in the lifting and rigging business. When lifting large items, the lifting sling may occasionally fail, resulting in possible disasters. To avoid these scenarios, make sure you're using the proper lifting slings for the task.

Lifting slings come in various styles, including polyester or chain, endless or round sling. Each one has a distinct function.

Chains are strong, rugged, and heavy, making them suitable for lifting large equipment or metal items with a crane or hoist when surface damage isn't a concern since the heavy rough chains crashing down on the cargo as it is dropped may cause damage. In addition, the metal hooks on the chain may potentially cause the cargo to be damaged further.

Read about the three criteria to consider when selecting the appropriate round sling and the many kinds of slings available in the market.

The Weight, Strength, And Fragility Of The Load

It is crucial to know the weight and strength of the load you are lifting, as well as the sling's WLL (Working Load Limit). Make sure you offer support from all sides after you have determined the object's weight and strength. Providing support from the sides will keep the item from falling, reducing the risk of accidents and danger to the employees on the job.

The fragility of the weight you are hauling is another thing to consider. Again, the aim is to raise an item while protecting it from harm during the lifting operation. Therefore, it is essential to use round slings to carry large items or products composed of strong metals.

Load Limit, Breaking Strength, And Safety Factors

Determine the load's centre of gravity and the sling's flexibility.

When looking at the item you will be lifting, pay attention to the form and design to determine the centre of gravity. You do not want to miss the weight's centre before you start lifting since you risk damaging the load by thrusting it. If you are lifting oddly shaped items, round slings are a good choice since they are flexible and robust.

Do The Objects Have Sharp Edges?

You will be lifting items with sharp edges. Although nylon slings are ideal for weights that need flexibility, the fabric will not function well when it meets sharp edges. They will tear the sling, which will very certainly result in the item falling and being damaged.

In this case, it is ideal to use round slings or wire rope slings for lifting items with sharp edges. We also provide corner covers that may safeguard your slings and chains by covering the object's corners.

Regular safe working loads range from one to three hundred tonnes, so there's sure to be a lifting sling that fits your needs. All lifting slings may be made to the customer's specifications, including lengths, widths, and the number of legs on each sling, as well as the end fittings if a round sling is needed.
