Type 6 RE Web Slings
Type 6 slings - also known as reverse eye (RE) - are built for rugged use. Both sides of the body are protected with abrasion resistant Cordura to give longer life in rough applications. The eyes of the type 6 slings can be turned inside-out to give a new wear resistance. The lightweight material and flexibility allows the reverse eye web sling to be quickly and safely handled. Type 6 web slings can be manufactured from nylon or polyester. 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?
