Note:
Length Tolerances  Single Part Wire Rope Slings  Standard
length tolerance is plus or minus two rope diameters, or plus
or minus
0.5% of the sling length, whichever is greater. The legs of
bridle slings, or matched slings are normally held to within
one rope diameter.

Other
fittings and latches are available upon request. 


















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 directions listed below.

Cells
with RED prices indicate shorter than recommended lengths and
may require
reduced capacity ratings and/or eye lengths. 


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? 







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].

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
for the type of hitch that will be used.

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 horizontal decrease. Sling angles
of less than 30° are not recommended.
