You can see all the technical details about the flat web slings we stock in the table below.

As already mentioned, the polyester which is used to produce our flat web slings is equipped with a surprisingly high tensile strength. Its fibres not only allow for a range of load capacities, but also have the ability to fight fatigue and remain safe and effective for longer.
Another important asset of this material is its general resilience in the face of environments which might create problems if you were using a natural fibre in place of a synthetic one. Mould and mildew will not accumulate quickly or threaten the integrity of the sling, so you can lift with complete confidence, time and time again, whether indoors or out.
These perks of polyester go hand in hand with its sturdiness when exposed to sunlight on a regular basis. Some materials will degrade when UV rays come into the equation, but our flat web slings will not suffer in this way.
The colour coding that is applied to this line up of slings is not only about improving productivity, but also about enhancing safety. You will never be confused about the load capacity of each sling because the colour gives a clear indication as to its capabilities. A similar system is used for our round slings, so you may already be familiar with its codification and intentions.
At the lower end of the scale, our basic black slings will be suitable for between 400kg and 700kg of load bearing. The configuration of the sling itself will determine the safe working load, so be sure to check carefully to buy the right product. Meanwhile the sturdiest slings around are orange in colour and are available in a variety of widths to give you that optimal 80 tonne capacity.
As we touched upon in the quick feature overview for this range, when you buy flat web slings from Lifting Gear direct you can also include extra features, such as wear sleeves. These sleeves cover the surface of the sling, sitting between it and any load it is supporting or equipment it is being used in conjunction with.
A wear sleeve does exactly what the name suggests; prevents wear and tear that could otherwise occur as a result of friction and abrasions during lifting operations.
Customisation of Flat Web Slings
Wear sleeves are just the start when it comes to your customisation options for ordering flat web slings. We can make adjustments to the length of the sling so that it has exactly the dimensions you require. We can add components to the end of slings as well, pulling from our line of lifting accessories that cover every possible eventuality.
This level of control over the products we offer applies across many of our ranges. From chain slings to tailor made jib cranes, you can ask us to create something that is made to measure and manufactured using the latest technologies and techniques.
Other Products to Consider
If you have specific lifting duties to take care of, then you will find a lot of excellent options on our site, all priced affordably to meet a variety of budgets. If you are concerned about corrosion resistance, our stainless steel lifting chains and components could be a good investment. If you want to restrain loads effectively but do not want something so permanent as a metal chain, then our disposable one way slings will meet your requirements.
You can even ensure safety with our load and force calculation equipment, work effectively at height with our kits and keep everything running smoothly with our lifting equipment inspections and testing.
