Lifting Slings

At Lifting Equipment Store, we are specialist suppliers of Lifting Slings - Made-to-Order right here in the UK.

We have been supplying lifting slings to multiple industries with exceptional success from day one. All of our slings conform to current EN standards and are delivered complete with printed declarations of conformity, giving you total peace of mind that you're purchasing only the best, most compliant products on the market. In addition, all of our Webbing Slings and Round Slings come complete with an easily visible and identifiable label, detailing the serial number, date of manufacture, safe working load limits, and specifications of the sling.

It's common practice for many lifting associations to recommend that you replace your slings every four years for safety reasons. The last thing that you want in your workplace is an accident, so we suggest that you take the necessary precautions by inspecting your slings before every use to ensure that there on no rips, tears, kinks, or snags, and that everything is how it should be. By Law, an examination is required every 6 months.

Simple flat Web Slings are made from 100% polyester - a robust and durable material with benefits that a Chain Sling or Wire Rope Sling cannot offer. Due to the type of material, Fabric Slings are much softer and lighter than chain and wire rope. Simple soft slings will not scratch or dent your load, nor with they rust or weaken with age (unless subject to corrosive environments). They also include reinforced becket style eyes - with other eyes available on request. All Webbing and Round Slings are colour-coordinated to indicate their safe working load or capacity.

Round Slings are even softer, and offers reassurance to cause less damage to your load if any at all), so they're perfectly suited to lift smooth and polished objects. Even though they look weak, they are very strong and feature very low stretch. They are the most cost-effective sling on the market right now. They also come in a range of different colours to provide easy identification of Safe Working Load. They are also offered in black to suit customers in the theatre, exhibition, and stage performance sectors.

Disposable/One-Way Slings - these propose the most cost-effective simple lifting sling for loading and unloading loads such as timber for roof trusses or walls from one end of a factory/warehouse to another. This type of sling can also be built into structures and either detached or hidden at its final location. We do offer both Endless Slings and slings that can come with eyes at either end to suit your requirements. Our range of high-quality products are the superior choice when it comes to safety and quality, with all of our Polyester and Wire Rope Slings being manufactured in a regulated, quality-controlled environment, just five miles from our HQ in the United Kingdom.

Guide to Lifting Slings

Lifting heavy goods and loads that could be easily damaged using rough Chain Wire Rope Slings is now no longer a problem. Polyester Lifting Slings were specifically developed to lift objects where surface damage would be unacceptable (such as a mega yacht or newly painted surfaces). The soft polyester significantly reduces friction and damage to surfaces, ensuring your goods remain in tip-top condition when being transported. Another clear advantage of Soft Slings is the huge reduction in the actual weight of the sling itself.

Polyester Webbing Slings can be purchase as standard with an eye each end, or they can be customised to your specifications - all of our custom-made slings are webbed in the UK.
They can be used in a number of different ways, such as choking or to create a basket. Please note that there can alter the safe working load of the slings depending upon which method you use for lifting. Our range includes tags that show all safe working load limits of the sling for safety purposes.
