Specialist Lifting Slings

There are different types of specialist lifting slings and what you need lifting will depend on what type of specialist lifting sling you will want to purchase. You can see different examples of specialist lifting slings below to give you an overview and idea of what specialist lifting sling you might need for your business challenge.

  • Polyester slings: Polyester slings can lift heavy objects and because the polyester is softer it does not damage items when lifting them. For example; if you were to lift a yacht with a metal chain it may scratch the exterior. Therefore, softer polyester slings avoid this issue and avoid product damage due to lifting friction. In addition, the specialist lifting sling is also lighter in weight to carry and transport from one working station to the next.

  • Chain slings: Chain slings can come in all sizes. PEWAG, Kuplex, Crosby Cartec, and Linx are high-quality brands to look at when you're considering getting chain slings. The chain slings are great quality and certified. However, do not use these if you want to avoid scratches to the load being lifted or have delicate products to lift.

  • Bespoke slings: These swings are customized to your requirements. Therefore, these slings can fit your exact needs and are of great quality.

Regardless of what specialist lifting sling you decide to purchase, you should replace your lifting slings roughly every four years to avoid any damage and to make sure the slings are working how they should be. If you don't it can potentially end up costing you much more than what it costs to replace the lifting slings.
