Buy Webbing Slings

Webbing Slings

Webbing slings are usually made of polyester and are designed to lift heavy loads. In particular, our range of polyester webbing slings are suitable for loads from 1 to 40 tonnes. Webbing slings are flexible, lightweight and have a large bearing surface that helps secure the load you lift. Webbing slings are the most common type of sling, and their stretch characteristics help to mitigate shock loading problems. You’re more than likely to find polyester webbing slings in the repair department of any manufacturing setting.

As well as providing a number of webbing slings, we also sell a variety of hooks to support them.

Webbing slings come in a number of different colours, each colour represents the tonnage the sling can lift. Here is a webbing sling colour chart to assist you with purchasing the correct sling for your needs.

Buy round Slings

Round Slings

Round slings are an infinite string of yarns, lined with a woven tubular jacket. Our selection of round slings can lift anywhere from 1 to 30 tonnes, so the round sling is, of course, the best choice if you have to lift a load exceeding 6 tonnes. All load-bearing polyester yarns in round slings have a secure polyester sleeve, ensuring product longevity and protection when lifting heavy loads. Each of our round slings has a different weight capacity, so make sure you order the right product for the weight limit you need to avoid any possible risks.

Round slings are available in bigger weight sizes than webbing slings and can therefore lift heavier loads.
