Roundslings are manufactured to BS EN 1492-2, and conform to "Machinery Directive 2006/42/EEC," with a safety factor of 7:1. Capacities are colour coded to indicate the working load limit.
Roundslings are manufactured from high tenacity 100% polyester fibre. The load bearing fibres are wound together to form an endless hank. The working load limit is determined by the number of turns in the hank.
The hank is then protected by a polyester, non load bearing, seamless cover. This protects and consolidates the load bearing fibres. Internal damage to these fibres is virtually impossible without first damaging the outer cover.
All slings are individually labelled, captivated in clear plastic sleeve, stating sling number, material, length, date of manufacture and other relevant safety information.
