Flat Webbing Slings - Equip2Go
Introduction to Our Heavy Duty Flat Slings
Flat slings are an all-purpose lifting sling that enables strong non-damaging lifting of a load. Used in various industrial environments, flat webbing slings are made from polyester webbing is sewn into a continuous length with an eye on each end. This design allows the sling to cover a broad support area, cushioning particularly delicate loads against damage, as well as reducing slippage. At Equip2Go, we have flat slings available in lengths of up to 10 metres and with load capacities of up to 10 tonnes. With our industrial lifting slings, you can enable your employees to work in a safe and productive environment.

For example, they can function as warehouse slings, factory slings, construction slings, manufacturing slings, mining slings, dock slings and many more.

What to Consider When Selecting Flat Slings for Your Workplace
Since our flat lifting slings are available in an array of load capacities and lengths, it is important to make sure that you choose one that is suitable for your intended application.

Safety Features of Our Flat Webbing Slings
Our synthetic flat slings have a number of safety features to ensure you can work at your safest when using them. Not only are they manufactured with super bright dense fabric, but they also have low stretch features that prevent ‘load bounce’ when lifting. They also have reinforced eyes and robust un-rippable protected tags that extend the working life of these flat slings. Additionally, they have an 8 to 1 safety factor, are fully certified and are compliant with Australian Standards AS 1353-1997. It is because of safety features like these that our synthetic webbing slings can provide durability and stability when lifting.
Measures You Can Follow to Workplace Safety When Using Our Industrial Flat Slings
There are a number of safety measures you can carry out to ensure safe and reliable lifting with our rigging straps. Firstly, it is a good idea to periodically have a certified inspector come and perform a sufficient inspection of your synthetic slings at least once every 12 months. On top of this, your employees should also be checking the flat sling for any damage or wear and tear after each use. Since webbing slings cannot be repaired in most cases, it is best to replace them once damage and/or deterioration have been identified.
Secondly, make sure that you are choosing the right lifting slings for the right applications. While synthetic flat slings are capable of lifting both delicate and heavy loads, chain slings are better alternatives when it comes to enduring abrasion and cuts. Additionally, synthetic lifting slings have a low heat-resistance and you should avoid using them for high-heat operations. It is important to keep these in mind when using flat slings.
Finally, when it comes to the actual lifting, avoid lifting loads over other people and leaving suspended loads unattended. By following these precautions, you can preserve workplace health and safety for all employees when using industrial flat slings.
