Rigging slings and lifting slings are made of cable, chain, rope or webbing, and are used with a lift or crane to safely move large loads. Chain slings handle odd-shaped, hard-to-position loads or hot materials. Teacup pipe lifting slings are used with heavy concrete water and sewer pipes. Round slings are color-coded for quick identification of weight ratings. Wire mesh slings are used in metalworking and other industries where loads can be too abrasive or hot for web slings. Wire rope slings hold up to heavy-duty use in rigging and lifting applications. Web slings provide stability and balance when lifting bulky objects, and are used with vertical, basket, and choker hitch types. Web sling wear pads protect against property damage and personal injury.
