WIRE SLINGS TYPES
General Purpose Sling
This is a general purpose sling. It is adaptable for basket and straight pull hitches. This type of sling is used more widely than any other type of sling for general materials handling. We recommend TRI-FLEX® Slings for sizes 1’’ diameter and larger for their economical, light and flexible durability.
We carry rope and cable grommet slings that are adaptable to a variety of fittings. Rope grommets are used for high resistance to abrasion and cable grommets are used where extra flexibility is needed.
Twin-Flex Sling System
This is a combination of three Tri-Flex ® Wire Rope slings wrapped together helically to form a nine-part finished body sling. After a heavy lift is finished, the product can be taken apart to form three individual Tri-Flex® slings for smaller lifting work. This product was developed for construction projects where there are a few heavy lifts. A superior strength sling because it has twelve parts of wire rope in the loop for greater strength than traditional nine part wire rope slings that have only ten parts of wire rope in the loops.
Tri-Flex Wire Rope Slings
These slings provide the best combination of strength and flexibility. Because of the patented TRI-FLEX® SLING construction, there is a large savings in materials and machine costs in the larger sizes; this, combined with ease and use make TRI-FLEX® SLINGS the only sling for smart buyers.
