Round Slings Manufactured in the UK

Simple flat web slings are made from 100% polyester, a strong durable material which also has benefits that a chain or wire rope cannot offer due to its type of material, fabric slings are much softer and lighter than chain or wire rope. Simple soft webbing slings will not scratch or dent your load, neither will it rust or weaken with age (unless subject to corrosive environments). A webbing sling also includes reinforced becket style eyes (other eye styles are available upon request). All slings colour co-ordinated to indicate the safe working load or capacity.

Fall Arrest and Fall Restraint Equipment- What’s the difference? This is a very common question we hear almost everyday, there is a fine line but one to very much consider before making any purchases of height safety equipment or lanyards.

Fall Arrest Equipment- is used when there is a risk of the wearer falling at height, a fall arrest lanyard or block will include a shock absorber of some form which deploys and breaks a fall when it occurs.

Fall Restraint Equipment- is used to restrain a wearer from having a fall, the idea is to secure the user to an area of protection and prevent them from being at risk from a fall. In simple terms for example if there is a flat roof one would use a restraint lanyard to prevent the user from reaching the edge and there for restrains the user from a risk of falling. This type of equipment is not to be used to arrest a fall and could result in serious injury.
