Chain, wire rope and textile slings

A sling is a type of lifting accessory that connects a load to a lifting device (crane, hoist...).  To easily lift a load, a sling is often equipped with an accessory such as a ring, shackle or hook for example. There are three types of lifting slings:

  • Chain slings: These slings have good abrasion and corrosion resistance.
  • Textile slings: They are easy to carry because they are light and flexible. However, they are generally more fragile than other types of slings.
  • wire rope slings: They are good intermediaries between chain and textile slings because they are more flexible and lightweight than chain slings and generally have a higher WLL than textile slings.
