Type: QQuad Leg Nylon Bridle Sling with Hook - Sling Width - 1 inch - 1 Ply - Length 12 ft
Application: This nylon webbing sling is for crane hoisting, general purpose rigging, overhead lifting, and material handling. The nylon sling is a versatile sling adaptable for use in a vertical hitch.
Description: This quadruple leg nylon sling is a (Class 7) web sling, made from nylon material, with an oblong master link at top and a hook at bottom. The quadruple leg nylon web sling is lightweight, flexible, relatively soft and suitable in applications were minimal damage to the load's surface finish is important. Exposures to certain chemicals and high temperature are important considerations when choosing a sling. Nylon webbing is resistant to most regularly encountered chemicals with the exception of moderate strength acids and bleaches. Elevated temperatures (above 200 degree F) significantly reduce the rated load capacity of the nylon webbing sling. While not as much of a problem, prolonged exposure to sunlight results in UV degradation of the sling.The capacity is reduced as the angle of use declines. The capacity of the web sling is always highest at a 90 degree angle (vertical hitch) of use and smallest at an angle of 30 degrees (or less). Please refer to the education section (see “Educational” tab below) for learn information.
Quality: The nylon web sling is sewn in the USA with the name of the manufacturer sewn-in for traceability and quality assurance. Each bears a tag displaying the rated capacity. The nylon sling meets or exceeds overhead lifting safety standards under ASME B30.9.
The difference: Low quality products can cause injury and damage. A look-alike nylon sling often found at lower prices is also often advertised to conform to the same safety standards (if at all). Be aware that it may refer to safety ratings in effect decades ago. So for example under the same safety standard a decade ago, a nylon sling may be rated to 100% without proof load testing while today it may be 300% with proof load testing. Be assured that we only sell the highest quality nylon slings and our advertised safety standards conform to the current ASME standards.
Industry name: A nylon sling for lifting is also called a web sling or webbing sling.
