Synthetic lifting slings; the good and bad

by Pacific Industrial Supply

Synthetic slings are a good alternative to heavy and cumbersome chain and wire rope slings. Not only are they lighter, synthetic slings carry their weight when it comes to several other factors. Synthetic slings are low in initial cost; but are also susceptible to a much shorter life span due to their soft synthetic fibers. The soft synthetic fibers are a blessing and a curse, although they can be easily severed or damaged, they are also easier on more delicate loads, leaving less scratches and physical damage on the load in question. The soft fibers also allow for a higher degree of flexibility meaning that they can be used in a choker or a hitch with ease. Synthetic slings must be kept away from ultra-violet light and kept off of the ground away from hazards such as being ran over. Taking good care of your synthetic slings will drastically increase their life span, and make your money go further.
