COMPARING NYLON TO POLY
Synthetic Polyester Slings
• Allows for more load control during a lift, less bounce – Approximately 3% stretch at rated capacity
• Polyester is a softer material which is less abrasive to delicate & sensitive finishes on loads
• Non-conductive, and lower liquid absorption compared to nylon
• More resistant to acidic environments and interactions with bleaching agents
• Good for low headroom lifts, due to lack of stretch
• Not recommended for alkaline environments including ethers, aldehydes, and strong alkalis
• Must not be used in environments in excess of 194°F or below -40°F
Synthetic Nylon Slings
- Can help reduce shock loading but must be accounted for in low headroom lifts
8-10% stretch at rated capacity
- Unaffected by oil & grease
• Resistant to ethers, aldehydes, and strong alkalis
• Not recommended for acidic environments or for use with bleaching agents
• Holds moisture which can add to or cause stretch under load—however moisture does not affect capacity
• Can conduct electricity because they absorb moisture/water
• Must not be used in environments in excess of 194°F or below -40°F

Our heavy-duty industrial sewing machines are equipped to sew web slings up to four plies thick, 1” thru 12” wide, and can be sewn with CORDURA® buffer on the edges or in the eyes of the sling to act as a buffer.
Need a specialty-lifting sling designed for a technical lift but not sure what you are looking for, we also offer made-to-order custom nylon & poly slings. Our made to order slings have a short lead-time of 1-3 days for sewing prior to shipping.
Certificates Of Conformance, Proof Testing
Certificates of conformance can be provided with your order for a small fee and must be requested at the time of order. Proof tests are performed in the factory where the sling is pull tested to 125% of the vertical rating and officially recorded as proof for governing entities. During our standard manufacturing process, random slings are chosen during a production run and are tested for compliance. Please note that in order to provide proof testing certificates with your order, every sling must be pull tested at the time of manufacture.
TYPES OF SLINGS
Nylon Triangle Choker Sling - Type 1
The Triangle Choker sling is very similar to the standard Type 2 triangle sling as they both have steel triangles to help prevent wear and tear on eyes, which extends the life of the webbing sling. The difference between the two is that the triangle choker web sling has a larger, slotted triangle on one end that allows it to be used in a choker hitch. The Type 2 triangle sling can only be used in vertical and basket hitches, while the Type 1 triangle choker can be used in all three different hitch types. This versatility make the Type 1 triangle choker slings extremely economical lift all web slings.
The triangles are made of steel but can be made in aluminum (in sizes up to 6″ wide and 1-ply capacities) by request. The triangle choker nylon lifting sling is available in 3-ply and 4-ply also for increased strength.
Triangle Sling - Type 2
A triangle sling strap is sometimes referred to as a Type 2 sling. These nylon or poly lifting slings can be used in a vertical hitch or basket hitch only. If a choker hitch is required, a triangle choker sling (Type 1) is a better choice as it is fitted with a slotted triangle on one end allowing the other end to pass through for the choker hitch. Triangle lifting slings are a good alternative for an eye & eye sling as the ends are fitted with steel triangles, or d-rings, which keep barbs from rough hooks rubbing against the nylon sling. Over time, a hook’s rough surface may rub and wear on the nylon, causing abrasion damage and shortening the life of the lift sling. By using a triangle web sling, the problem is solved by acting the same way an anchor shackle would for an eye & eye sling. Aluminum triangles are also available upon request. The triangle fittings are made from alloy steel, but can be made from aluminum (in limited sizes) upon request.
Flat Eye & Eye Sling: Type 3
Eye & Eye nylon or poly lifting slings are very versatile as they can be used in choker, vertical or basket hitches. Our nylon and poly eye & eye lifting slings come in various widths ranging from 1″ to 12″ wide and can be made with 1-ply, 2-ply, 3-ply or 4-ply thickness. We can also custom make an Eye & Eye slings to your specifications.
Twisted Eye & Eye Sling: Type 4
Similar in widths and ply thickness to the Type 3 Flat Eye & Eye sling, but these rigging & lifting slings have a twist design. This modification does not affect the break strength or working load limit of the lifting sling, but a twisted eye lifting sling works better when used in a choker or basket hitch. These can also be made in custom sizes.
Endless Sling: Type 5
Endless slings are the most versatile of all rigging & lifting slings because it can be used with any of the three most common hitches: vertical, choker, or basket. Also known as a continuous loop sling, this lifting sling is formed by joining the ends of the webbing together with a load-bearing splice. This simple design makes them extremely economical as well as durable since you can easily change the contact area when you use it, which dramatically decreases the wear and tear on the fabric.
When measuring for an endless sling lift strap, keep in mind the sling is laid flat and measured end to end or bearing point to bearing point, not measured as a circumference.
Reversed Eye Slings - Type 6
Reversed eye slings are durable hoisting straps that have the eyes and the body covered with tough CORDURA®® fabric wear pads. This feature helps resist cutting and abrasion to extend the life of the sling. The design also lets you reverse the eyes, so the other side can be used as a second wearing surface, doubling the service life of the sling.
Reverse eye sling lift slings have the reversed eye at both ends equal to 1/2 the body width. The eyes of this lifting sling stand at 90 degrees to the sling body to prevent any twisting of the eye or sling body when using a basket or choker hitch. In addition to a basket and choker hitch, the reversed eye sling can also be used with a vertical hitch, making it extremely versatile. Reverse eye slings generally work better in a choker hitch than a straight eye sling due to the twisted eyes.
These rigging & lifting slings are also available with flat eyes, also known as Type 7 sling, upon request, although the reverse eye is typically most common. If you are unsure which would work best for you needs, call us, we will be happy to help you find the best lifting slings for the job.
The reverse eye web sling is most commonly manufactured in 2″ to 6″ widths. If you need a wider sling, try either the light duty cargo basket or continuous eye wide heavy duty cargo sling. These wide body slings come in widths up to 12″. They offer a wider body for stability, but can only be used in basket hitches only.
Continuous Eye Wide - Type 8
The continuous eye wide lifting sling, sometimes called a wide body heavy duty basket, is great for extra heavy loads that require a wide body for stability. Please note that these rigging & lifting slings can only be used in basket hitch applications, they can be an ideal web sling as the body can be as wide as 24″ and up to 2-ply thickness to allow up to 108,000 lb basket rating. As opposed to the Attached Eye Wide Body Sling, the Continuous Eye Wide Body Sling has eyes that are a continuous part of the body to provide added strength.
Continuous eye nylon rigging & lifting slings are very similar construction pattern to the Type 6 Reversed Eye Sling, but has a heavier load bearing capacity and tapered eyes due to the wider nylon webbing involved.
The length of continuous eye wide web lifting slings is determined by laying the sling flat and measuring from one end of the nylon sling to the other including the eyes.
Attached Eye Wide - Type 9
These nylon lifting straps are designed for lighter loads that require a wider surface area for load stability, so they’re perfect for hauling delicate or finished surfaces. Need a lifting nylon strap with hook ends? Try the Type 9 Attached Eye Wide- the eyes are constructed with thinner webbing than the body to accommodate smaller fittings for attachment such as hoist hooks (hooks and other nylon strap accessories are sold separately). Also known as a light duty cargo basket sling, this style is for use with basket hitches only. Due to the smaller eye design, this light duty cargo sling ratings max out in the basket hitch at 10,000 for the 12″ wide up to 24″ wide. For a similar design but higher load capacities, check out our Continuous Eye Wide Body Web Sling. It can have basket ratings as high as 108,000 lbs. in a 2-ply 24″ wide size.
Nylon or poly bridle slings (multiple – legs) offer the versatility of a chain or wire rope bridle sling with the lightweight and easy-to-handle appeal of nylon or poly. Because they are more ergonomic and lighter weight than wire rope or chain, the overall weight is reduced when lifting. Other benefits of a nylon or poly bridle sling include a longer sling because the points can be rotated, and shock absorption due to the stretch of the material. Sling configurations available: single leg, double leg, triple leg, and quad leg, which can be fitted with master links (oblongs), hooks, or sewn loops.
Marine Rigging & Lifting Slings
Nylon & Poly lifting slings work very well in the marine lifting industry. Because of the variety of vessel sizes and shapes, our boat lifting slings are also available in all shapes and sizes. Economy boat slings can be made of 1- or 2-ply nylon or poly and have end fittings such as pear links or triangles. These types of heavy duty lifting slings are perfect for smaller boats such as runabouts, kayaks, canoes and other smaller boats. We also offer heavy-duty boat slings up to 4-ply in design. We can customize nearly any boat lifting sling you need.
Strap care and maintenance
Our durable, heavy duty nylon & poly lifting slings will offer years of safety and efficiency cared for properly. To extend the life of your rigging & lifting slings, keep these procedures in mind:
- Improper Loading Use: Overloading, unbalanced loading and shock loading can affect the overall strength of lifting slings. This includes not maintaining a proper sling fleet angle during use. The sling fleet angle is measured between the sling leg and a horizontal line. If the angle decreases, the load on each leg increases. Angles of less than 30 degrees must be avoided to maintain the integrity of the lifting sling.
- Abrasions and Other Foreign Matter: Punctures and damage to the material of the lifting sling can reduce its strength. Web slings can hold foreign material like metal shavings, weld splatter and grit, which can seriously limit the working life of the sling.
- Light and temperature : Repeated and prolonged exposure to sunlight or even light from an arc welder can stiffen and bleach a lifting sling. Nylon degrades at temperatures at or above 194 degrees F, so keeping your equipment protected from extreme temperature and light conditions is important.
- Cuts: Nylon and Poly lifting slings are susceptible to damage from load edge movement against the material. Sling manufacturers suggest inspecting your lifting sling carefully before, during and after use for any signs of cuts in the fabric due to abrasion from the load.
