Lifting sling


What Is Webbing Lifting Sling Used For


Like most slings, Webbing Lifting Sling are designed to be used to help aid in the lifting of heavy Duty objects that cannot be lifted with just your hands. Woven and made from polyester, webbing slings are far lighter and easier to use than their chain and wire counterparts, making attaching and removing them to the object at hand far easier, which is particularly helpful if the object is an odd shape or is particularly wide.


Their versatility also means webbing slings are useful for towing, meaning they can come in very handy should your vehicle breakdown. They’re also useful should your vehicle become stuck in either mud or snow, as webbing slings are great for towing vehicles that have become stuck.


Elsewhere, you’ll likely find webbing slings used by those who enjoy mountain climbing, as they make a great piece of climbing protection during tricky climbs to help climbers secure themselves onto rocks or trees.

Now that you understand what makes this gear so useful, below we have looked at the two primary uses below, which account for the majority of applications for this type of equipment.


1)    Lifting and lowering tasks

Starting with the most common application for webbing slings; they are extremely useful for lifting and lowering tasks.

3)    Mountain climbing

Webbing slings are actively used in mountain climbing, and are recommended by The British Mountaineering Council. Webbing slings protect the lead climber by placing it around rocks or trees or to thread holes. Slings attach other pieces of climber rope protection. Should a longer link be needed, then a longer webbing sling can be used.


4)    Boats

Webbing slings are ideal for lifting boats safely, which is occasionally a requirement when storing a boat or docking. Specialist slings are available with extra eyes, sleeves and lead weights for helping to sink the sling.


5)    Vehicle towing

Slings are perfect for towing of vehicles such as cars, lorries, diggers, trucks, caravans, horseboxes as well as trailers. When used as vehicle recovery straps they are ideal where de-bogging is necessary, i.e. vehicles stranded in mud, snow, ditches, sand, etc.

The Safety Factor of A Webbing Sling


Due to their versatility, webbing slings are designed to be used with slightly lighter loads than a chain or wire sling. To understand what is the maximum load size a webbing sling can handle, it’s helpful to refer to the webbing’s safety factor.


A webbing sling’s safety factor is expressed in the form of a ratio. For example, if a webbing sling has a ratio of 4:1, this means the sling can handle a load of up to 4 times its safe workload.


To help with this, all our webbing adheres to the universal colour coding for slings, making it easy and simple to know which sling is best suited for the role. Webbing slings comes in 8 different colours, which are:
