Features, Advantages and Benefits Environmental Considerations
Promotes Safety

Wire mesh slings shall not be used at temperatures above 550ºF

Steel construction resists abrasion and cutting

Store in a clean, dry area to avoid corrosive action

Each sling permanently stamped with capacity
   and serial number

Good flexibility - grips load's contours

Do not edge load. Full width of mesh must contact load.

Each sling proof tested and certified
How To Order
Saves Money

Specify:

Grips load firmly without stretching -
   reduces load damage
1. Mesh Gage (10 or 12)
2. Mesh Width - inches
Resists abrasion and cutting for greater sling life 3. Length - Feet (Bearing point to bearing point)
Low stretch and flexibility reduce load damage
Wide bearing area distributes load to help
    avoid load damage

Repairable - thus very cost effective
Alloy steel end fittings - plated for long life
(Choker and Triangle End Fittings)
Wire mesh is zinc plated - resists corrosion
Saves Time
Width of mesh helps control and balance load

End fittings fit most large crane hooks

Call to order
Wire mesh slings with normal usage will eventually need repair and parts replaced. This can be done for relatively
small cost. Wire mesh slings that are repaired are guaranteed to meet or exceed original specifications. Five factories
are strategically located in the U.S. to insure prompt service. We repair all types and brands of mesh slings.

INSPECTION CRITERIA FOR WIRE MESH SLINGS
All slings should be inspected for damage prior to each use
to assure that their strength has not been compromised.
The following photos illustrate some of the common
damage that occurs to indicate that the sling must be taken
out of service.
type 1 roughneck wire mesh slings
THE DAMAGE: Overloading / Uneven Loading

WHAT TO LOOK FOR: Mesh does not lie flat, appears
distorted and/or will not bend easily.

TO PREVENT:
Do not load in excess of rated capacity.
Load edges must be straight / flat and in contact with full
width of mesh at bearing points.
type 1 roughneck wire mesh slings
THE DAMAGE: Wear

WHAT TO LOOK FOR: Flat areas on the individual wires.
When wires have lost 25% or more of their original diameter,
the sling must be taken out of service.

TO PREVENT: Do not drag sling on the ground and do not
drag loads over slings. Pad high wear areas.
THE DAMAGE: Corrosion / Heat Damage

WHAT TO LOOK FOR: Areas of discoloration.
Remove slings with wire diameter reduction of 15%
or more. Slings exposed to temperatures of 550° F
or more must be removed from service.

TO PREVENT:
Hang slings for storage away
from moisture.
Do not use mesh slings above 550° F. Consider
using stainless steel mesh.
type 1 roughneck wire mesh slings
type 1 roughneck wire mesh slings
THE DAMAGE: Broken Weld or Brazed Joint

WHAT TO LOOK FOR: A cracked or separation of the
wire at the edge or in the body of the mesh.

TO PREVENT: Do not side load mesh. Tension on sling
must be distributed evenly across the entire width of the mesh.
THE DAMAGE: Distortion or Wear of End Fittings

WHAT TO LOOK FOR: Fittings that do not lie flat
or have obvious areas of wear.

TO PREVENT: Never lift with fitting against a load
edge or set load directly onto sling. Reduce wear by
keeping loads within the rated capacity of the sling.

Effect of Angle of Lift on a Sling's Rated Capacity
DEFINITION
serves to alert users to potentially hazardous situations which often occur in the use of these products.
Failure to read, understand and follow the accompanying instructions on how to avoid these situations
could result in death or serious injury.

Using slings at an angle can become deadly if that angle is not taken into consideration when selecting the
sling to be used. The tension on each leg of the sling is increased as the angle of lift, from horizontal,
decreases. It is most desirable for a sling to have a larger angle of lift, approaching 90°. Lifts with angles
of less than 30° from horizontal are not recommended. If you can measure the angle of lift or the length
and height of the sling as rigged, you can determine the properly rated sling for your lift.
What would be the rating of each sling
rigged at this angle?
choker hitch vertical hitch What capacity sling do I need?
1. Determine the weight that the sling
    will be lifting [LW].
1. Calculate the Reduction Factor [RF].
a. Using the angle from horizontal,
    read across the Angle Chart to the
    corresponding number of the
    Reduction Factor column.
2. Calculate the Tension Factor [TF].
a. Using the angle from horizontal,
    read across the angle chart to the
    corresponding number of Tension
    Factor column.

b. Divide sling height* [H] by sling
    length* [L].

b. Divide sling height* [H] by sling

2. Reduction Factor [RF] x the sling's
    rated capacity for the type hitch that
    will be used = Sling's Reduced Rating.

Example:
Vertical Choker rating of each sling = 6,000 lbs.
Measured Length (L) = 6 ft.
Measured Height (H) = 4 ft.
Reduction Factor (RF) = 4 (H) ÷ 6 (L) = .667
Reduced sling rating in this configuration = .667
(RF) x 6,000 lbs. = 4,000 lbs. of lifting capacity
per sling

Example:
Load Weight = 1,000 lbs.
Rigging - 2 slings in vertical hitch
Lifting Weight (LW) per sling = 500 lbs.
Measured Length (L) = 10 ft.
Measured Height (H) = 5 ft.
Tension Factor (TF) = 10 (L) ÷ 5 (H) = 2.0
Minimum Vertical Rated Capacity required
for this lift = 500 (LW) x 2.0 (TF) = 1,000
lbs. per sling

Sling capacity decreases as the angle
from horizontal decrease. Sling angles
of less than 30° are not recommended.
