Introduction to Our Heavy Duty Round Lifting Slings
Round slings are used in various industries to lift loads and provide support without the risk of damage. In particular, their softness and flexibility allow them to mould around configurations of irregular loads and offer sufficient protection. At Equip2Go, we have synthetic round slings available in lengths of up to 10 metres and capacities of up to 10 tonnes. Given that lifting equipment helps improve workplace efficiency and safety, your employees can work at their best knowing that they are safe using our industrial round slings.
Rounds Slings Industrial Uses
Cargo slings are used in a number of industries to assist in lifting equipment and goods. For example, they commonly function as warehouse slings, factory slings, construction slings, manufacturing slings, mining slings, dock slings and many more. Regardless of the environment, you work in, our rigging straps can enhance the safety and productivity of your workplace.
What to Consider When Choosing Round Slings for Your Workplace
When choosing synthetic lifting slings for your work environment, it is important to be aware of a few things. Since our heavy-duty round slings are separated based on their capacities, you should check to make sure the capacity of the sling belt you choose aligns with your workplace’s needs. At Equip2Go, our round slings range from our 1 Tonne Rated Round Slings to our 10 Tonne Rated Round Slings. As a result, each of our round slings has been colour coded to signify their different load capacities.
Moreover, the lengths of our round slings that we have available also vary depending on the load capacity. For example, our 3 Tonne Rated Round Slings are available in lengths from 1 metre to 10 metres, whereas our 6 Tonne Rated Round Slings are available in lengths from 2 metres to 10 metres. Along with capacity, it is also important to verify that the round lifting sling’s length matches how you intend to use it.
Safety Features of Our Industrial Round Slings
Our synthetic slings are equipped with multiple features to ensure your safety when using them. These include the following:
- Our round slings are made from 100% polyester, meaning the internal fibres are protected and these slings are lightweight while maintaining strength and durability.
- Our round slings have internal load-bearing strands that are covered with a protective cover and are wound in a continuous coil to form an endless sling.
- The safety tags on our synthetic slings are robust and made with un-rippable material, all of which is further protected by a continuation of the fabric sleeve.
- Our industrial round slings are fully certified to meet Australian Standards AS4497-1997 and have a safety factor of 7 to 1.
All of these safety features help increase safety conditions in your workplace when using our round slings.
Measures You Can Follow to Preserve Your Safety When Using Our Round Slings
There are a number of additional safety measures you can carry out to further ensure workplace security and productivity when using our round slings. Firstly, it is a good idea to check the sling for any damage or wear and tear after each use. You should also have a certified inspector to come and perform a sufficient inspection of your lifting slings at least once every 12 months. Seeing as synthetic sling belts cannot be repaired in most cases, it is best to replace them once damage and/or deterioration have been identified.
Secondly, make sure that you are choosing the right lifting slings for the right applications. While synthetic round slings are strong enough to lift heavy loads, chain slings are better alternatives when it comes to enduring abrasion and cuts. Additionally, synthetic slings have a low heat-resistance and you should avoid using them for high-heat operations. It is important to keep these in mind when using lifting slings.
Finally, when it comes to the actual lifting, avoid lifting loads over other people and leaving suspended loads unattended. By following these precautions, you can preserve workplace health and safety for all employees when using industrial round slings.
