Wire Rope Slings

Single Leg Slings

Single Part, Mechanical Spliced Slings

Eyes are formed using the flemish eye splice. End are secured by pressing a metal sleeve, either steel or aluminu, over the ends of the strands of the splice. Pull is directly along the centerline of rope and eye. Gives most efficient use of rope capacity, is economical.

Flemish eye splice – In the standard flemish eye mechanical splice, rope is separated into two parts – 3 adjacent strands, and 3 adjacent stands and the core. These two parts are then re-laid back in opposite directions to form an eye, and ends are secured with a pressed metal sleeve.

*Rated Capacities basket hitch based on D/d Ration of 25 * Rated capacities based on pin diameter no larger than natural eye width or less than the nominal sling diameter * Rated capacities based on design factor of 5 * Horizontal sling angles less than 30 degrees shall not be used * Rated capacities show apply only to 6 X 19 and 6 X 37 classification wire rope ** When angle of choke is less than 135°, capacity is reduced.

Single Part, Hand Spliced Slings

The end of a single wire rope is bent back along the rope to from the eye, and strands are hand tucked into the body of the rope. This splice is tapered and concealed by tucking strands end into the rope. ** Warning: Hand- Spliced sling should not be used in lifts where the sling may rotate and cause the wire rope to unlay.
