Well-known British manufacturer of round and flat webbing slings, and height safety equipment, Trans-web is extending the size and capability of its round sling range to accommodate more demanding applications. Based in Oldham, Lancashire, Trans-Web is an established leader in the design and manufacture of textile lifting and lashing systems and personal protection equipment when working at heights.
The enhanced range is manufactured by the company in the UK, and designed with a lifting capacity up to 100 tonnes in weight. They can be produced up to 36m in circumference on newly installed machinery.
Like all Trans-web’s slings, the new large round sling range is manufactured from 100% high tenacity polyester yarn. This, together with its heavy duty, high quality non-load bearing sleeve, enables these large slings to deliver a remarkably high strength-to-weight ratio. They are light, flexible, twist and kink resistant, and have the ability to absorb shock loads, within the usual safety constraints. Because the slings have been designed to wear evenly along their full length, they deliver, like all other Trans-web products, a longer life-span.
"Our large round slings are ideal for choke lifting cylindrical objects," says Trans-web’s Lee Wrigley. "They also offer flexibility for the user, providing a wide choice of lifting modes, and the polyester sleeve offers a significant degree of protection when lifting smooth objects without causing damage. All our products are fully tested, and the large round slings are no exception, being certified to current standard BS EN 1492-2:2000 + A1:2008. This gives them the full safety factor of 7.1."
Each sling is individually labelled and numbered with fully encapsulated, reinforced labels providing clear indication of all relevant safety details.
Trans-Web products are used widely in a range of industries throughout the UK and abroad including transport, construction, marine and offshore engineering, offering quality products at competitive prices. It is a member of the Resolute Corporate Holdings Limited, a family-owned holding company that includes other textile based manufacturing businesses.
