  • Guidance Notes forSlinger/CC’s using Web Slings

    Advantages of Fibre Web Slings

    l High wear resistance

    l High load carrying capacity verses sling weight

    l No or minimal electrical conductivity

    l Easy to carry and transport

    l Colour coded for easy identification

    Disdvantages of Fibre Web Slings

    l Fibre slings cab especially vumerable to friction and sharp edges (if required a frictionprotection sheath should be used)

    Types of Fibre Web Sling

    There are various different types of Web Slingsand various capacities. Being able to identifythese types is essential. Each SWL (Safe Work-ing Load) is denoted by coloour. Slings can bemade of materials such as - nylon, polyester,kevlar etc.

    Lifting With Web Slings

    Fibre slings are suitable for a large number oflifting activities awhere large lifting capacity isrequired, but a low weight of LLT (Loose LiftingTackle). It is deal for delicate equipment, forexample, S&C components that are required tobe installed whist maintaining a high level offactory build integrity. There are severalmethods that can be used to sling componentsusing fibre web slings and it is vital that duringthe sling and subsequent lift, care is taken tomake sure that the risk of damage to the slingand component is mitigated. This could bethrought the use of protective sleeves, notinstalling excessive sling eyes to hooks, usingthe correct couplings (shackles / hooks). NB thislist is not exhaustive.

    Re Rating Slings when Choaked/Clutched orBasket Configuration

    As with most lifting tackle, the angles of liftand configuration will affect the capacity of thetackle. As opposed to lift chains/brothers.Slings can, in some cases, increase their capa-bility in various configurations. Slingers MUSTbe aware of this when slinging loads.

    Inspection of Slings

    ALL slings should be inspected prior to EVERYuse to ensure that their strength and integrityhave not been comprimised. As with all otherlifting equipment they are required by law(LOLER) to be inspected at periodic times.They must also be identified as being tested.With slings this is by way of a fabric tag woveninto the sling (usually near the eye).

    Types of damage to be inspected for - cuts,heat/friction wear, fraying etc.
