Care & Use

  • Never overload equipment
  • Do not use if WLL tag is missing or illegible
  • Inspect sling for damage prior to use
  • Do not use if there is any sign of cuts, heat or chemical damage, excessive wear, damaged stitching, any other defects or presence of grit, abrasive materials or other harmful matter
  • Do not tie knots in a sling
  • Protect sling material from sharp edges. Use protective
  • Do not expose sling to temperatures above 90°C.
  • Do not allow abrasive or other damaging grit to penetrate fibres
  • Consult with manufacturer’s recommendations before immersing a sling in any chemicals
  • Keep away from strong alkalis and phenolic compounds 


Inspection of slings - All Lifting

Synthetic slings should be inspected for the following prior to use:

One major disadvantage of woven webbing slings is that when used to lift loads such as concrete slabs, grit can penetrate the sling causing internal fibre damage, which is not always obvious.

Internal wear can be caused by repeated flexing, particularly where particles of grit have penetrated the fibres.

Damage to the outside cover of round slings can cause damage to be much more likely to the inner sling fibres.

Melting or shrinkage of fibres can be due to exposure to high temperatures. Remember that high temperatures can result from friction as well as from a hot environment.

Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light, generally from sunlight, will weaken synthetic fibres. This may be indicated by powdering of the outer layer.

Chemical exposure may also cause fibres to break down and soften. Surface fibres may be plucked or rubbed off and there may be a local stiffening of the sling.

Operators should refer to the manufacturer’s specification criteria and the appropriate standards.


Correct Selection of Synthetic Flat Web and Round Slings

There are a few things to consider when selecting the correct sling for the lift.

  1. How many slings are required to conduct the lift safely?
  2. Select which type of sling is required
  3. Determine the load weight to be lifted and the angle of the lift
  4. Select the correct lifting mode which corresponds to the lift chart above
  5. Consider the correct length of the sling to lift the load
  6. Does the lift require other fittings eg: shackles,lifting points, etc.
  7. If the object being lifted has sharp edges, then protective sleeving should be considered. See section 11
  8. Consider the lifting environment such as chemical exposure and climatic conditions that affect the safe use of the sling
  9. If you need further assistance selecting the correct sling, contact our friendly staff at All Lifting and Safety.
