Web slings are often used where chains may be too bulky for the lifting application. They are extremely versatile as they can be used in various configurations including vertical lift, choke lift and a basket lift. The lifting capacity of the websling will change depending on the configuration for example a vertical lift has a s.w.l (safe working load) of 1 times the S.W.L. A choke has an S.W.L of 0.8 times the S.W.L and a zero degree basket has an S.W.L of 2 times the S.W.L.
Hoistech offers for sale a full range of Polyester webslings. Webslings also known as lifting straps and lifting belts are manufactured with a built in factor of safety of 7:1, meaning the websling will not fail until a load of at least 7 times its safe working load is exerted upon it. This makes webslings a very safe way of lifting heavy objects. All our webslings come with a certificate of conformity detailing their safe working load.
The standard webslings we can offer are 1tonne, 2 tonne, 3 tonne, 4 tonne, 5 tonne, 6 tonne, 7 tonne, 8 tonne, 10 tonne and 12 tonne.
