Chain slings are ideal when extra strength is required and environmental conditions may be extreme or hazardous. Resistant to both abrasion and cutting, the sling’s capacity can also be maintained under special conditions, such as high temperatures (up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit/204 degrees Celsius), with no strength reduction. Chain slings also have the ability to adapt to the shape of a load for safer transport. Chain slings are also a good choice when a custom assembly is needed.
The type, size, length, and end fittings are all determined by the user, for a variety of configurations.
