Synthetic web slings are cost effective, lightweight, versatile and easily stored. They come in a variety of widths and thicknesses, and are constructed of flat webbing that can be layered into plys. The more plys, the stronger the sling. The most common sizes are usually vary in widths of 1″, 2″, 3″ and 4″.
Type 3 Slings are furnished with an eye or loop sewn on each end of the sling in a flat configuration to allow for passage through narrow spaces. Type 3 Slings 3″ or wider have tapered eyes unless specified otherwise.
Type 4 Slings are the same as Type 3 Slings except the eyes are twisted before sewing. This twisting allows for better choker hitch and lets the eyes of the sling nest together better on a crane hook when it is used in a basket hitch. Rated capacities in lbs. Type 4 slings 3″ or wider have tapered eyes unless specified otherwise.
