Trust the world’s strongest slings for more precise lifts.
A look at lifting today. It’s happening all over – on the docks and offshore. At construction sites, logistics centers, warehouses, utility companies, chemical plants and throughout heavy industry. It’s the growing need to lift heavier loads of all shapes and sizes… and to lift them faster, more precisely and with fewer people. At the same time, it’s important to maintain absolute safety for the cargo and the crew. Clearly, for lifting larger, heavier loads, the slings need to be reliably strong, yet easy and safe to handle. The slings need to be absolutely predictable and precise, especially for one-of-a kind items. The crane operator must have the same confidence that he gets when using slings from steel wire or chain. Faced with these demands, an increasing number of operators have placed their trust in slings made with Dyneema®.
Lift any load with confidence… with Dyneema®.
Whatever lifting job lies ahead, there’s one way to be certain that the job will be a success. By using lifting slings made with Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fi ber™. Weight-for-weight, Dyneema® fiber is 15 times stronger than steel. Its superior strength-to-weight ratio makes it ideal for a wide range of applications. Slings made with Dyneema® are of similar diameter as slings from steel wire, yet are a fraction of the weight. This means the same cranes can lift heavier net loads. In addition, a sling made with Dyneema® is about 75 percent of the diameter and less than half the weight of an equally strong polyester sling -which makes it much easier and safer to handle.
Economic lifting… with Dyneema®.
Using slings made with Dyneema® is also good for your bottom line. Being easier and faster to handle, they can boost productivity with fewer personnel. And being durable, slings made with Dyneema® make a good investment for multiple operations.
Other excellent properties. Slings made with Dyneema® also outperform steel wire and synthetic slings in terms of tension and bending fatigue as well as abrasion resistance. Compared to polyester slings, they have minimal stretch for more precise lifting. In addition the Dyneema® fi ber will fl oat, is resistant to most chemicals, has good UV resistance, is not affected by salt water and does not absorb water.
The world’s strongest slings for faster take-off and delivery.
Time is money in any industry. That’s why more and more operators rely on slings made with Dyneema® for faster, safer, more efficient lifting. All of which can contribute to a more productive and profitable operation.
The many aspects of faster lifting. Lifting slings made with Dyneema® are ideal for repetitive operations – for example, those faced typically by stevedore companies. Because the slings are lighter and less bulky than polyester slings, they are easier to transport to the job site and can easily be handled and quickly be placed on the load. For deep-water operations it’s much easier for divers to properly position the slings. This ensures that the lift is completed quickly, according to plan. Adding a cover with Dyneema® to the sling provides extremely good cut and abrasion resistance, thereby minimizing the need for time-consuming placement of protection pads.
Due to their low weight and durability, slings with Dyneema® enable you to use just one sling for a broad load range, instead of requiring multiple slings made of polyester or steel. This helps save time and extra inventory costs.
Avoid downtime due to injuries. Of course, nothing slows down an operation more than accidents and injuries. Working with softer, lighter, easier to handle slings made with Dyneema® can significantly reduce downtime related to accidents and injuries.
The world’s strongest slings to safely lift anything, anywhere.
Avoiding accidents to cargo and crew also can contribute to a more efficient and profitable operation. Lifting heavy loads always presents a danger. In every case, working with slings made with Dyneema® can enhance safety… and help ensure that the lift is successfully completed.
Safety first – for the crew and the load.
Using slings made with Dyneema® provides an extra level of confidence. Because they are lightweight, they are exceptionally easy to handle and present significantly less danger to the crew handling them. There are fewer back injuries, for example. And in contrast to steel wire, which can fray and leave sharp edges, slings made with Dyneema® have a very smooth surface. Due to their overall ease of handling, slings made with Dyneema® can be more easily placed in the ideal positions on the heaviest of loads to further enhance safety.
When water presents an extra challenge. Whether the job is offshore, deep-sea or right next to the docks, slings made with Dyneema® can make a signifi cant difference. They are strong and lightweight. Most important, they do not absorb water. Whether wet or dry, they have the same low weight and remain easy to handle – unlike polyester slings, which will take up water and become heavier. This makes it easier in salvage jobs, for example, for divers to safely position the sling around the load. Slings with Dyneema® are also less likely to break in harsh conditions, since they are highly resistant to salt water, chemicals and UV radiation – further enhancing safety of the operation.
Trust the world’s strongest slings to be invincible.
Above all, whatever the challenge, you can depend on slings made with Dyneema® to lift the most demanding loads.
This is not only because slings made with Dyneema® are exceptionally strong, lightweight and easy to handle. It’s also because they are virtually indestructible. This is due to the inherent properties of Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fi ber™. By adding special covers from Dyneema® to these slings, you end up working with slings that are highly resistant to abrasion and tearing. So when lifting loads with rough or sharp edges – such as rolls of sheet metal or large prefab concrete parts traditionally lifted with chain – the same slings can be used for many lifts. Without ripping or shredding. This certainly compares favorably to other synthetic slings, which are good for only a few lifts when working with metal rolls.
Extreme performance in extreme situations.
Lifting slings made with Dyneema® can be found worldwide in a range of harsh, highly demanding situations. Utility companies and chemical plants, for example, rely on these slings for their resistance to wear and tear, as well as to chemicals. They also trust the slings’ strength, which can lift loads up to several hundred tons. Slings made with Dyneema® have minimal elongation – almost the same as steel wire, and significantly less than polyester or nylon slings. And for military and emergency operations throughout the world, slings made with Dyneema® can be used to quickly, safely and efficiently airlift in supplies and equipment.
Trust Dyneema® to help deliver every load right on target.
Clearly, slings made with Dyneema® provide an intelligent, cost effective alternative to other types of lifting slings or wire available today. In fact, many kinds of wire rope or cable have already been replaced with those made with Dyneema®. Furthermore, lifting lines made with Dyneema® are excellent replacements for steel lines on cranes. Due to their low stretch, it’s easy for operators to accurately position any load. Lines with Dyneema® also have excellent tension and bending resistance, even at small bending diameters, making it possible to work with smaller, lighter sheaves.
