by Arctic Wire Rope and Supply
A very heavy duty set of van or container lifting lugs with easy activating spring locks that can be quickly released but very secure when engaged. Rated at 80,000 lbs for the set and every one is tested to 2 times the working load limit at the factory.
Extremely popular, lightweight, easy to use, won’t rotate under load, don’t kink and have stretch to them (Nylon is 6%, Polyester is 3%) minimizing shock loading, come in a variety of widths, plies and configurations. Since they are fabric, they will cut more easily than wire rope and chain slings, have a lower max temperature use of 196F and will break down due to UV exposure. However because of they are lightweight, easy to use and have nasty broken wires to cut open you hand like wire rope slings, there is a tendency to use web slings past their useful life so always check for cuts, abrasion wear and fading from ultraviolet exposure.
Arctic Wire Rope and Supply is Alaska's longest established and largest manufacturer of slings, chokers and bridles made of wire rope, cable, nylon web, polyester round and grade 10 chain. We do it all right here in Anchorage and were awarded the Alaskan Manufacturer of the Year in 2006.
