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
