Braided Wire Rope Slings
Braided wire rope slings are excellent for heavy duty, high capacity lifts, because the braided design of the wire ropes offers superior strength and flexibility. The configuration of cables on braided wire slings also offer additional benefits:
- Can conform more snug to a load in a choker hitch, resulting in better balance.
- Wider surface area of the rope creates superior load control.
- Flexibility of the rope makes it easy to handle.
Our most popular braided slings are the 8 part round braided slings. The rated capacities can be found in the table below. Have questions or would like custom quote for a braided sling? Give our sales specialists a call.

How to Calculate the Length of a Wire Rope Sling
Wire rope bridles are measured by the length of the sling leg only. The length of the oblong master and eye hooks should not be included in the overall measurement.
Our slings are available in a variety of lengths, but can also be customized to any length you need. Give our sales team a call for more information or to place a custom order.
Sling Proof Testing Certificates
Proof testing certificates can be supplied with your order for a nominal fee and must be requested at the time of order. Proof tests are performed in the factory where the sling is pull tested to 2x the vertical rating and officially recorded as proof for governing bodies. During the standard manufacturing process, only random slings during a production run are tested for compliance; in order to provide proof testing certificates with your order, every sling must be pull tested at the time of manufacture.
All of our wire rope lifting slings are inspected, certified and tagged with metal tags displaying capacity, care, and instructions.
