What makes Wear Sleeves Necessary?

The usefulness of wear sleeves is outlined fairly effectively in the name of the product itself; it is intended to withstand wear and tear, rather than allowing it to take its toll on the material that makes up the lifting sling beneath.

This type of product makes particular sense for use with flat web slings. While the polyester of the sling itself is very strong, it is not completely incapable of being worn down over time. Abrasions which build up as it rubs over different surfaces can make early replacement a necessity. With a wear sleeve to take the brunt of the punishment, the sling will be in good condition for as long as possible. This also has benefits in terms of lifting safety; a topic that every business should consider carefully.

What are the Different Options for Protective sling sleeves?

Wear sleeves themselves are available in different materials and in different configurations. Heavy or light duty webbing will be produced using a similar material to the sling beneath, providing a level of resistance and durability that is relative to its thickness and composition. Sewn webbing is literally stitched around the sling, so it can cope with endless slings, including round slings.

Can you add Wear Sleeves to Slings?

This is a popular option, since it saves you the trouble of installing the wear sleeve yourself. Our ability to customise our lifting slings is one of the things that sets us apart from the competition. You can come up with a completely bespoke order, including the equipment, accessories and shackles that you need.
