Flexible textile slings, are perhaps the most functional. They are excellent for imposing or light loads, including and especially fragile, say, lumber, because it does not distort the objects. In addition, they are cheap, really weigh less than other lines and are extremely resistant to the environment and chemicals. Naturally, the solid advantage of this type of sling is flexibility. The next type of sling – rope, mainly of interest for its durability. Primitiveness and ease of use, resistance to temperature extremes, low cost rope slings can be used in virtually all suitable jobs.
Very important condition is that the failure of slings noticeable almost immediately, so you can fix before starting work without problems for the cargo. Significant negative – sensitivity to chemical reagents. Compared with the rope slings chain more flexible and functional. In the freedom of use they look like the textile and need to perform construction work and lifting. Meanwhile, the chain model enough 'Tenacious' and no problem can withstand repair. If competently take care of the chains and keep doing preventive maintenance, they will be as good as new for many years. Jr.
Many experts draw attention to the safety of these sling because of smooth surface and ease of transportation. The scope of sling can be controlled with modern details. Robust steel rope is needed not only in construction and industrial sectors, but also in everyday directions, say, for today's elevators. Varieties are classified by the thickness of the rope lay. To protect the cable from damage its coating is treated with corrosion inhibitor. It should be pointed out that ropes remarkably resistant to changes in temperature – not cold, nor, conversely, hell do not make an impression on them.
