Wire rope slings are strong and an great choice for heavy duty jobs for not only lifting, but hoisting, towing, or anchoring down loads. Wire rope slings offers excellent abrasion-resistance so they can be used in almost any conditions and temperatures. Its flexible design can conform to just about any shape for a more secure application.
Wire rope slings are manufactured in a variety of configurations each steel wire rope configuration will offer different benefits and will be better suited to certain applications.
A good general rule of thumb is that a smaller number of large outer wires offers better wear and corrosion resistance, while a larger number of small wires provides a better level of flexibility and fatigue resistance.
