What are textile slings and what are they used for?
Heavy loads pose a great challenge for manual workers and can take loads of time to move around without the help of loading equipment. Textile slings are designed to make this work easier and they have been largely effective on this end. They are hooked to hoists and provide handling capabilities for heavy loads. They are used extensively on construction sites especially when the building under construction is bound to have at least a couple of floors.
Colour code of lifting slings
The colour coding system is part of the numerous regulations that the lifting operations industry has put in place to manage the use of different equipment. The regulations require that suitable marks are placed on the lifting equipment for safety purposes. One should know the safe working load limit to reduce the risk of injury they are exposed to. The sling cannot lift any load that is more than the working load limit. Different colour codes are used to indicate the limits of lifting slings.
Do textile slings expire?
Time does not single-handedly affect the durability of textile slings. Weather, use of slings as well as environmental conditions all play an active role in determining how long the slings will last. Storage conditions also influence the overall strength of the string and manufacturers to encourage consumers to provide optimum storage conditions.
