Hoistech offers for sale a full range of round slings. Tube slings are manufactured with a built in factor of safety of 7:1, meaning the round sling will not fail until a load of at least 7 times its safe working load is exerted upon it. This makes tubeslings a very safe way of lifting heavy objects. All our roundslings come with a certificate of conformity detailing their safe working load.
The standard tubeslings we can offer are 1tonne, 2 tonne, 3 tonne, 4 tonne, 5 tonne, 6 tonne, 7 tonne, 8 tonne, 10 tonne and 12 tonne. As standard these roundslings come in lengths of 1meter, 2 meter, 3 meter, 4 meter, 5 meter and 6 meter. However Chain and Rope Suppliers can supply additional sizes upon request
Round slings also known as tube slings or endless slings are a versatile and popular piece of rigging equipment. They are an endless loop of strands covered in a polyester sleeve. Round slings are measured in 2 ways either by their EWL (effective working length) or CIRC (circumference) the EWL of a tube sling is half the CIRC. Round slings are use in the same applications as webslings and work with the same range of shackles, connectors and hoist equipment supplies that are available for webslings
All webslings must be manufactured to specific guide lines(EN1492-2). For example the colour of the webbing material represents the lifting capacity of the websling.
The colours are as follows:
Purple = 1T
Green = 2T
Yellow = 3T
Grey = 4T
Red = 5T
Brown = 6T
Blue = 8T
Orange = 10T
Orange = 12T
