As loads become greater and timescales shorter, heavy lifting operators need their lift slings to be lighter, stronger and more compact in order to streamline and safeguard their operations, whether on- or offshore.
Steel-wire lifting slings are heavy and unwieldy to operate, rough on loads and potentially dangerous to workers. Today’s operators need the guaranteed strength of the world’s strongest fiber combined with light weight, softness and flexibility to ensure faster, safer work. Heavy lift slings made with Dyneema® SK78 offer higher precision, efficiency, and safety. They are easy to maintain and repair, increasing uptime and cutting costs.
Heavy Lift Slings enable faster operations, inspection and maintenance
8x stronger than steel wire rope at the same weight
Soft, flexible and safer for crews, loads and structures, with no ‘fishhooks’ from snapped steel wire
Dyneema® SK78 fiber is renowned for its quality, consistency and performance. This has resulted in an Approval of Manufacturing Certificate by DNV GL, and in Type Approvals by Bureau Veritas and ABS. If you want to know more about our certifications, please contact us.
Take a look at our case studies to see how lifting slings made with Dyneema® proved to be very safe, reliable, and durable in the most demanding lifting operations.
“The use of slings made with Dyneema® is a proven technology for Allseas. Other vessels also use these slings for radius adjustment operations, which forms the basis for synthetic sling selection over steel slings. The lightweight specifications of the slings allowed for a relatively compact design of the winch solution, i.e. including the fore- and after- runners. This allowed for smaller winches in the forecastles of the bows of the Pioneering Spirit.”
“In the case of jacket relocations, the weight reduction means that we save at least 45 minutes on each lifting operation.”
“We were extremely pleased with the Gleistein DynaOne slings made with Dyneema® SK78. Outstanding quality and performance”
