Round Slings

Conforming to BS EN1492-2, and also “Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC,”  our round slings have a safety factor of 7:1.

Made using high tenacity polyester fibre, load bearing fibres are wound together to form an endless hank. The number of turns in the hank determines the working load limit. A seamless, non-load bearing polyester cover protects and consolidates the load-bearing fibres. Due to the protective cover, internal damage to these fibres is almost impossible, without first damaging the outer cover.

Slings are colour coded to identify the relevant working load limit. Customers can also use our ‘How much may I lift’ chart to identify the working load limit. The round slings are also individually labelled, located in a clear plastic sleeve. The label states the sling number, material, length and date of manufacture. In addition to any further relevant safety information.

Examination Process

1. Lay the sling on a flat surface in a well-lit area.

2. Examine the length of the sling on both sides for surface chafe, cuts or any damage to the eyes, stitching, coupling components or fittings.

3. When the sling is not in use, store in a clean, dry and a well-ventilated location at ambient temperatures and away from contact with chemicals.

4. If the outer cover is damaged, check to ensure that the load bearing fibres are intact.

5. Repairs are possible when only the cover has damage. Return damaged slings to Trans-web for a fully certified and speedy repair service.
