Choose wire rope slings by diameter based on capacity ratings. Then shop by length.
Cable laid slings are in a 7 x 7 x 7 wire configuration to offer more flexibility and resistance to kinking than regular wire rope. Also sometimes known as aircraft cable, it’s narrow profile and pliability makes it ideal for applications that require the rope to bend easily. Cable laid slings are also galvanized to offer protection from corrosion.
Standard cable slings are manufactured in a traditional single leg design, but other fittings are available to allow for complete customization. Call our sales team to ask about thimbles, hooks, crescent thimbles, slip-through thimbles, and other options to create the custom steel strand lift sling you need.
How to Calculate the Length of a Wire Rope Sling
Wire rope bridles are measured by the length of the sling leg plus the end hook. The length of the oblong master 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.
