Simplex single thickness webbing lifting slings are manufactured by Lifting and Crane Services, in-house from high-tenacity polyester webbing and conform to BS EN 1492-1 2000 (+A1:2008)
They are basically double the width of Duplex lifting slings and are useful for spreading the load, especially on delicate items such as plastic boats or anything that could be damaged by crushing.
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 lifting 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.
