Description: This Class 7 nylon sling with triangle end fittings is a heavy-duty web sling made from nylon material. The Type 2 fittings consists of two small metal triangle eye fittings on both ends, commonly referred to as a triangle and triangle nylon sling or "TT" sling. This arrangement cannot be used in choker hitches. It can be used in vertical and basket hitch lift arrangements only.
The flat eye and eye nylon 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° (degrees) 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.
Working load limits vary depending on the angle of use. 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 more information.
Quality: Sewn in the USA with the name of the manufacturer sewn-in for traceability and quality assurance - Bears a tag displaying the rated capacity - Meets or exceeds overhead lifting safety standards under ASME B30.9
The Difference: Low quality products can cause injury and damage. Look-a-like nylon slings, often found at lower prices, are 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 Names: A Nylon Sling for lifting is also called a 'webbing sling', 'web sling', or 'synthetic web slings'. A Nylon Strap is referred to as a tie-down.
