Synthetic Web Slings

Publication Date: 
June 30 / 2016

Synthetic web slings are lightweight and flexible flat rigging usually made of nylon or polyester. They are affordable, non-sparking, and offer good protection from damaging machined parts. It is very important that synthetic web slings are regularly and properly inspected.  Even seemingly minor damage to a sling can significantly reduce its capacity to hold or lift objects and increases the chance that it may fail during use.
