When calculating the proper sling for your application, please allow our experienced staff to assist you in choosing the right type, size and load. It is vital for your efficiency, productivity and most of all, your safety.

Hercules SLR has always fabricated our wire rope slings with heavy duty, permanently attached sling tags. The user should maintain this identification so that it is legible during the life of the sling. All persons using the sling should read the tag and understand the information on it.

Regulations require that all wire rope slings be tagged with the name or trademark of the manufacturer, the rated capacity for specific configurations and the diameter or size of the sling. Under no circumstances should you lift more than a sling’s rated capacity.

Advantages of wire rope slings:

  • Steel construction resists abrasion and cutting
  • Least expensive, by capacity, of all steel slings
  • A wide variety of sling configurations and terminations
  • Heat resistant to 400 degrees F

Two major characteristics of wire rope slings are flexibility and resistance to abrasion. In general, these traits are a direct function of the number of wires in the component wire rope. Fewer wires means larger diameter wires, with better abrasion resistance, better resistance to crushing and reduced flexibility. More wires result in decreased wire diameter, reduced resistance to abrasion and crushing but increased flexibility and kink resistance.
