SYNTHETIC WEB SLING TYPES
Whitelaw Rigging manufactures and stocks a wide variety of lifting and tie down products. We can supply you with standard slings to lift most loads. Or we can work with you in the design and fabrication of special design slings. Synthetic web slings are available in either medium or heavy duty webbing.
TYPE I—TRIANGLE/CHOKER Type I slings have steel or forged aluminum fittings. One end of the sling has a combination fitting that can be used for a choker or basket sling hitch. The other end of the sling has a triangle fitting.TYPE II—TRIANGLE/TRIANGLE Type II slings have steel or forged aluminum triangle fitting on both ends of the sling. They are used when using the basket hitch.
TYPE III—EYE & EYE Type III slings have an eye on each end of the sling. Three inch and wider slings come standard with tapered eyes for improved hook fit. A general use sling that can be used in vertical, choker and basket hitches.
TYPE IV—EYE & EYE (TWISTED EYE) Type IV slings have twisted eyes on each end . The twist provides for improved service life when the sling is used in the choker hitch.
