Instructions for use of flat webbing and round slings

  • Before use, select the correct flat webbing or round sling with regard to its application, capacity and the surface conditions of the load(see designation on the labels).

  • Examine the condiyion of the webbing sling or the round sling(improperly maintained or repaired slings, including unreadable labels, must be excluded from further use).

  • The permissible capacity of the slings must not be exceeded. (WLL in accordance with the applied lifting method)

  • Never shorten a sling by knotting.

  • Flat webbing slings and round slings must not be placed around shap edges or over rough surfaces. Use wear sleeves and edge protectors where necessary.

  • Flat webbing slings should be applied in such a way, that they carry the load over the full sling width.

  • Loads may only be placed on slings if damage is precluded . Do not drag slings from under loads-position the sling to correctly to ensure easy removal after use.

  • Position slings in such a way, that they hold the load securely. (displacement of the centre of gravity must be avoided)

  • In "choker" or direct lifts the round sling should be positioned so that it can from its "natural"  inclination angle of 60 and that heat due to friction is avaoided.

  • Avoicd sharp jerks and jolts.

  • Do not drag the load across the floor with the sling ot drag the sling across tough surfaces.
