Type 5 EN Web Slings
Type 5 slings - also known as endless slings (EN) - are the most versatile of web slings and can be used in vertical, basket, and choker hitches. Simply by moving the contact area of the nylon sling, the wear and tear on the sling can be decreased dramatically, increasing sling life. Type 5 Seamless slings may be used to increase load balance when used in a choker or basket hitch. The lightweight material and flexibility allows the endless sling to be quickly and safely handled. A treated nylon sling stretches approximately 10% at rated capacity. Nylon’s extra stretch helps avoid shock loading. Nylon web slings should not be used around acids or bleaching agents. A treated polyester sling stretches approximately 7% at rated capacity. Polyester's lesser stretch makes load control easier by reducing bounce. Polyester web slings should not be used near aldehydes or ethers. Don't see the size you are looking for? Need wear pads, coverings, or tags?
