Wire rope slings can help with heavy-duty crane lifts, but braided wire slings can offer you even more capability. A braided sling is formed by plaiting or braiding wire ropes together to form the sling body and an eye at each end.
This type of sling has many advantages over a regular wire sling, including its increased flexibility, increased friction to grip loads, even stress distribution, increased rated capacity, and kink resistance. That means you can perform high-capacity lifts in a safer and easier way. A braided wire sling also is often used when loads need to be turned because the braid offers the right friction and kink resistance to turn loads safely.
Our braided wire rope slings are made with Extra Improved Plow (EIP) steel, and they have an Independent Wire Rope Core (IWRC) to give you more strength. The IWRC is the strongest type of core for wire rope, so you can get the high performance you need for heavy-duty lifts.
