A wire rope sling is often used in crane lifting because of its strength. A braided wire sling offers you even more strength because of the wire ropes braided together. This makes a braided sling the perfect choice for heavy-duty, high-capacity lifts.
Braided slings are advantageous because they have increased strength, increased flexibility, and the right friction to grip loads. This type of crane sling is often used in projects where the load needs to be turned because this sling offers you the right friction to grip the load and it resists rotation. A braided sling can be used in a basket hitch, choker hitch, or vertical capacity to give you the right blend of strength and balance for your job.
This 8 part braided sling is one of the most popular braided sling options. This has 8 parts braided together to form a rounded body. The rounded shape can help with even stress distribution, as well as resistance to rotation and kinks. This keeps your load safer. The 8 part braided sling is made with an Independent Wire Rope Core (IWRC), and it offers you better rated capacities than a 3 or 6 part braided sling. You can get this sling in a variety of diameters, lengths, and eye sizes to give you the specific capability you need for your high-capacity lifts.
