Product Description

WIRE ROPE SLINGS – HARDWARE

When selecting rigging hardware to be connected to wire rope slings, we encourage that the hardware have a diameter greater than the rope diameter so as to achieve D/d ratio in the eye of the sling greater than 1 to 1. We need to make sure that the WLL of the rigging hardware is greater than the sling tension.

  • All rated Capacities are based on a D/d ratio of >25:1
  • Rated Capacities are based on a D/d ratio of >25:1 and choking angle greater thant 135°.
  • All sling angles refer to the HORIZONTAL angle.
  • All Rated Capacities (WLL's) on multiple leg slings are based on EQUAL loading of all sling legs.
