The importance of using strong and flexible slings in heavy lifting industries
Endless slings/grommet slings are a crucial tool for industries reliant on heavy lifting. In comparison to other lifting equipment, endless slings are known for their superior strength, flexibility, and durability. They're constructed from various materials, but the HMPE/Dyneema® fibres used in our endless slings make them some of the most robust and flexible on the market.
One of the major advantages of grommet slings built with HMPE/Dyneema® fibres is their superior strength and flexibility. These fibres are stronger than steel, yet 10 times lighter, making them the ideal choice for lifting heavy loads while also reducing the weight of the equipment needed. Additionally, these slings are highly abrasion-resistant, providing long-lasting durability that can stand up to even the toughest conditions.
Advantages of endless slings made with HMPE/Dyneema® fibres
Endless slings made with HMPE/Dyneema® fibres offer a range of advantages over conventional lifting equipment. Here we have listed some of the basic advantages.
Lightweight and easy to handle
Endless slings made with HMPE/Dyneema® fibres are ten times lighter than steel. The low weight and the structure of the fibres, gives our endless slings very easy handling.
High strength and durability
The HMPE/Dyneema® fibres are also incredibly strong and durable, making them a reliable tool for most industries. Despite being 10 times lighter, the Dyneema® fibres ensure the same strength and durability as traditional steel wires.
Resistant to abrasion and chemicals
One of the greatest benefits of the Dyneema®/HMPE fibres is that they are resistant to abrasion and chemicals, making them suitable for use in harsh environments. This resistance ensures that our endless slings can withstand the elements and are less likely to fail due to wear and tear.
Endless slings made with HMPE/Dyneema® fibres can also increase safety in heavy lifting industries. The slings are proof loaded and have high length precision, meaning they are less likely to fail during lifting operations.
Applications for grommet slings/endless slings
Our slings made with HMPE/Dyneema® fibres are ideal for construction and material handling applications. The slings can be used for heavy lifting tasks, such as lifting steel beams and concrete blocks. The slings are proof loaded and have high length precision, which means they are less likely to fail during lifting operations. This ensures the safety of all personnel and equipment involved in the lifting process. Below we have listed some examples.
Offshore and marine applications
When setting up wind turbine parks at sea, our endless slings help to lift heavy equipment and materials, such as monopiles, jackets, towers, the nacelle and the blades. The slings are resistant to salt water and harsh weather conditions, making them the perfect tool for offshore and marine applications.
Construction and building sites
In construction, endless slings can be used to lift heavy building materials, such as steel structures, beams and concrete blocks.
Mining and quarrying operations
In mining, endless grommet slings can be used for pulling or lifting parts of heavy machinery.
Transportation and logistics
In transportation, grommet slings can be used to lift and secure cargo onto trucks, trains, and ships.
