EYE
& EYE WIRE ROPE & SLINGS

TYPE
IMP PERMALOC WIRE ROPE SLINGS

Our
Permaloc Slings are made using the flemish splice technique
to form the eyes. Unlike the simple return loop
method that places 100% of its strength on the swaged sleeve,
Permaloc slings have reserve strength should the
sleeve become damaged in use.

1 Ton = 2,000 lbs. 
²
Minimum sling length when using standard eyes. 






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°. Refer to
Effect of Angle chart. 







Above
rope prices are domestic, for imported rope call us. 

Slings
shorter than min. lengths listed may require reduced capacity
ratings and/or eye lengths. 













Effect
of Angle of Lift on a Sling's Rated Capacity 















DEFINITION



as
used throughout this catalog, 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]. 


2.
Calculate the Tension Factor [TF]. 

a.
Using the angle from horizontal,
read across the Angle Chart to
the corresponding number of the
Reduction Factor column.

Divide sling height* [H] by sling

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






Example: 


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




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) = 1000 lbs. per sling 
Reduced
sling rating in this
configuration = .667 





(RF)
x 6,000 lbs. = 4,000 lbs. of lifting
capacity per sling
