Lifting Sling Sleeves and Protectors
Sling protectors are used to protect both your sling and your load from damage that can occur during an overhead lift. In order to properly secure a load, lifting slings often must be wrapped around sharp and/or protruding edges. Without proper sling protection, your lifting sling may be subject to excessive cutting and abrasion forces. Sling protectors are also useful for picking up fragile or highly finished parts which are susceptible to damage when being lifted.
The number one cause of sling failure, especially regarding synthetic slings, is cutting, making sling protection a vital part of any overhead lift. Sling protectors come in many different materials, styles, and shapes. Some of the different types of sling protectors are:
- Edge Guards
- Wear Pads
- Sling Sleeves
Depending on the lifting application, you may need one type or a combination of different sling protectors, to ensure your load is lifted safely without any damage to the sling or the load.
