TUFLEX BRAIDED ROUNDSLINGS

For the ultimate in big load - (up to 612,000 lbs. in vertical basket)
or for the security of multiple part sling lifting.
Redundant Safety Braided Tuflex Features, Advantages and Benefits
Maintains all the basic Tuflex features plus ...
Tuflex Braided Roundslings are made from three [6 part]
or four [8 part] individual Tuflex. Should one of these
component slings be damaged while in use, the remaining
undamaged slings should be able to safely return the load
to the ground.
Promotes Safety
Braided construction offers redundant safety
User friendly compared to steel slings
Saves Money
Large capacity slings are generally purchased for one
   major lift, then rarely used again. Braided roundslings can
   be disassembled into component slings for general
   purpose lifting, if individual slings are correctly tagged.
braided tuflex roundslings
Can be returned for disassembly, inspection and
   retagging as individual slings.
Saves Time
Easy to transport and hook-up.

braided tuflex roundslings How To Order
Ordering length should be based on sling at rest.
Braided length tolerance is +/- 5% of the ordered length
(sling at rest).
At its rated capacity, braided will stretch approximately 9%
and have a length variance of +/- 2%.

Do not exceed rated capacities. Sling capacity decreases as the angle from horizontal decreases.
Slings should not be used at angles of less than 30°. Follow instructions below.

THE TUFLEX DIFFERENCE
All Lift-All slings meet or exceed OSHA and ASME B30.9 standards and regulations.
What is a Tuflex Roundsling? • Conforms to shape of load to grip securely
• Load bearing yarns protected from UV degradation
• Red striped white core yarns provide added visual
   warning of sling damage
• Color coding provides positive sling capacity
   information
It is an synthetic sling made from a skein (continuous loop
or hank) of polyester yarn covered by a double wall
tubular jacket. The roundsling body can also be compared
to sling webbing with the tubular jacket face yarns woven
without binder yarns; this allows the core yarns to move
independently within the jacket.
Saves Money
• Double wall cover for greater sling life
• Soft cover won’t scratch load surface
• Conforms to shape of load for reduced load damage
• Seamless - no sewn edges to rupture prematurely,
   requiring removal from service
• EN360 and larger Tuflex feature Tufhide wear resistant
   nylon jacket for extra sling life
• Tuff-Tag provides required OSHA information for the
   life of the sling, not just the life of the tag
Tufhide Jacket
Made from bulked nylon fibers, the double wall Tufhide
jacket offers better abrasion resistance for our larger
capacity Tuflex (EN360 and larger). In addition, Tufhide
reduces the heat buildup that can damage other high
capacity roundslings when used in a choker hitch.
Tuflex Roundslings
Features, Advantages and Benefits
Saves Time
• Color coded capacities for quick identification
• Light weight and pliable for easy rigging and storage
• Independent core yarns choke tightly, but release
   easily after use
• Easy to carry - high strength to weight ratio for easy
   transportation
Promotes Safety
• Light weight reduces fatigue and strain on riggers
• Synthetic materials won’t cut hands
• Consistent matched lengths for better multiple sling load
   control
• No loss of strength from abrasion to cover
• Tuff-Tag provides serial numbered identification for
   traceability
• Low stretch (about 3% at rated capacity) - reduces
   sling and load abrasion - good for low headroom lifts

Effect of Angle of Lift on a Sling's Rated Capacity
DEFINITION
serves to alert users to potentially hazardous situations which often occur in the use of these products.
Failure to read, understand and follow the accompanying instructions on how to avoid these situations
could result in death or serious injury.

Using slings at an angle can become deadly if that angle is not taken into consideration when selecting the
sling to be used. The tension on each leg of the sling is increased as the angle of lift, from horizontal,
decreases. It is most desirable for a sling to have a larger angle of lift, approaching 90°. Lifts with angles
of less than 30° from horizontal are not recommended. If you can measure the angle of lift or the length
and height of the sling as rigged, you can determine the properly rated sling for your lift.
What would be the rating of each sling
rigged at this angle?
choker hitch vertical hitch What capacity sling do I need?
1. Determine the weight that the sling
    will be lifting [LW].
1. Calculate the Reduction Factor [RF].
a. Using the angle from horizontal,
    read across the Angle Chart to the
    corresponding number of the
    Reduction Factor column.
2. Calculate the Tension Factor [TF].
a. Using the angle from horizontal,
    read across the angle chart to the
    corresponding number of Tension
    Factor column.

b. Divide sling height* [H] by sling
    length* [L].

b. Divide sling height* [H] by sling

2. Reduction Factor [RF] x the sling's
    rated capacity for the type hitch that
    will be used = Sling's Reduced Rating.

3. Lifting Weight [LW] x the Tension
    Factor [TF] = Minimum Sling Rating

Example:
Vertical Choker rating of each sling = 6,000 lbs.
Measured Length (L) = 6 ft.
Measured Height (H) = 4 ft.
Reduction Factor (RF) = 4 (H) ÷ 6 (L) = .667
Reduced sling rating in this configuration = .667
(RF) x 6,000 lbs. = 4,000 lbs. of lifting capacity
per sling

Example:
Load Weight = 1,000 lbs.
Rigging - 2 slings in vertical hitch
Lifting Weight (LW) per sling = 500 lbs.
Measured Length (L) = 10 ft.
Measured Height (H) = 5 ft.
Tension Factor (TF) = 10 (L) ÷ 5 (H) = 2.0
Minimum Vertical Rated Capacity required
for this lift = 500 (LW) x 2.0 (TF) = 1,000
lbs. per sling

Sling capacity decreases as the angle
from hjorizontal decrease. Sling angles
of less than 30° are not recommended.
