Our factory can offer both Hand spliced and our methods of terminating cable laid slings. The Wire Rope Sling offers the following advantages:

  • Slings can be manufactured to closer length tolerance than those normally quoted for hand splicing.
  • The Stretch of the eye and termination is reduced because there are no splicing tucks which will pull down under load.
  • Slings of shorter length can be produced. again because there is length of splice to be considered.
  • Wire Rope Sling offers 90% terminal each efficiency as against 75% with conventional hand spliced cable laid slings.
