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
Slings made with Dyneema® help ALE’s giant mobile crane set world lifting record
When heavy lifting specialist ALE was specifying the slings for its AL.SK350 crane, it wanted something lightweight, compact and strong. Which led the company to slings made with Dyneema® SK78.
How strong – and the other benefits – ALE would discover during a major FPSO topside installation project in Brazil.
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.
