Our own manufactured in house ‘Samson’ range of webbing slings are normally constructed from high tenacity polyester webbing and conform to BSEN 1492-1 2000 (+A1:2008)
Other materials such as Nylon or Polypropylene are available for special applications. Basic lifting slings are either Duplex (double thickness) or Simplex (single thickness) or in endless form either Simplex or Duplex. Manufactured to the latest European standards (BS EN 1492-1) all slings within that range are colour coded for easy S.W.L. identification.
Standard lifting slings are supplied with reinforced eyes to minimize wear from the hoist hook and prevent burning when used in a choked lift. We recommend the use of wear sleeves to prolong the life of these lifting slings. Specialised Cargo Nets are also available constructed from webbing using the same 7:1 safety factor.
Also available with metal end fittings.
