Work faster with lightweight Heavy Lift Slings
Higher precision, efficiency, and safety
Steel wire lifting slings - typically used for general purpose and engineered lifts as well as offshore oil, gas and wind farm installation - are reliable and strong. But they are also heavy, hard to handle, rough on loads, and always potentially dangerous.
Get in front of faster handling by using slings with Dyneema®
Slings with Dyneema® offer the same strength at one-seventh the weight of steel ones. They are also easy to maintain, inspect, and repair, which increases uptime and cuts costs.
- Soft, flexible and so safer for crew, loads, and structures
- Torque-free and similar elongation to steel wire rope
- Float in water and resistant to UV, chemicals, and salt
Lightweight rope slings reduce manpower needs in wind farm installation
Using Bridon Steelite Xtra slings made with Dyneema® cut manpower requirements during the construction of the Gwynt y Môr Offshore Wind Farm. It also minimized the risk of damaging fragile components, reduced assembly times, and increased the lifting capacity of installation barges.
Grommets with Dyneema® make two-person installation safe and easy
The offshore industry is requesting Dyneema® in more and more demanding situations. Seaway Heavy Lifting, for example, used short, heavy lift grommets made with Dyneema® to install tripods at the Borkum West II wind farm development.
Grommets with Dyneema® made installation a safe and easy two-person operation.
