Kinedyne has expanded its full line of lifting slings to include new Type 4 twisted eye-to-eye lifting slings engineered to be tough, flexible, secure, and lightweight.
According to Kinedyne, the new slings are made of two-ply polyester webbing for less stretch, greater abrasion resistance and improved moisture resistance. Typically used with lifting devices, such as hoists, cranes, and pullies, the company states these slings are rated for use in choker, vertical, and basket hitches. Vehicle fleet repair shops use them to lift engines, axles, and other heavy parts. Slings also see heavy use in construction industry applications, the company says.
The eyes of a Type 4 sling are twisted 90 degrees to allow for a smoother choker hitch and a better fit in a basket hitch. Kinedyne says its slings feature wrapped bearing points to provide additional wear protection for greater durability. Available in 1-in., and 2-in., sizes, they meet or exceed Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) B30.9, and Web Sling & Tie Down Association (WSTDA) standards and regulations.
“Adding eye-to-eye slings to our lineup gives us one more lifting solution to offer our customers,” says Bob Dissinger, Kinedyne director of sales – United States. “Whether an application calls for the strength and durability of a wire rope sling or the unmatched flexibility of an eye-to-eye polyester sling, Kinedyne has the solution.”
The eye-to-eye polyester slings require no hardware to operate and can be removed easily from beneath a load. Kinedyne says they retain their flexibility throughout their lifespan without stretching out, offering reliable support for a variety of lifting applications. They are manufactured, rated, and tested per the WSTDA specifications for synthetic web slings, the company adds.
