All DYNAMICA SafeLift slings are made with Dyneema® and are manufactured according to DIN EN 1492-4. Every sling is custom-made with quality and safety in focus. The rope slings are constructed as a single, double or triple sling with a variety of options when it comes to covers and extra protection against abrasion.
What are Dyneema® fibres?
DYNAMICA Safelift slings are made with Dyneema® which is classified as the strongest fibre in the world. Dyneema® fibres are also known as Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMwPE) and are used for a wide range of different products where strength and flexibility are needed.
The same properties make Dyneema® fibres the best choice for heavy lifting slings. The low weight combined with strength make SafeLift slings the perfect alternative for steel wire slings, traditional polyester slings or other types of lifting slings. The low weight makes the slings easy to handle but also safer to use, since the amount of stored energy in the sling are much lower compared with a steel wire sling. A low amount of energy means a limited risk of backlash in case of break.
ROPE slings made with Dyneema®
DYNAMICA lifting slings are mainly used for onshore and offshore lifting operations where for example wind turbine wings, turbine parts etc. are mounted, repaired or dismounted. All sling are custom-made, but you can see a few samples below.

Cover and other types of sling protection materials
To secure a long lifetime of your SafeLift slings, it is often beneficial to apply a cover to protect the sling in the bearing point or against abrasion on the main body of the sling. The cover can be added to the entire heavy lifting sling or on specific areas, which particularly are exposed to abrasion. The most commonly used covers are made with Dyneema® or Polyester. Dynamica Ropes offers a wide range of other cover opportunities, which you can read more about here: DYNAMICA Covers.
Regular inspection of the sling is a crucial parameter and DYNAMICA Dual Lock cover and DYNAMICA Woven Dyneema® sleeve are good and durable solutions to look into. Both covers have an open and close function, which makes visual inspections possible.
