8-Part Braid - Single Leg Wire Rope Slings
Multi-Part slings are flexible, snug up tightly around the load in choker hitches, and quickly regain shape after a lift. They also offer outstanding handling characteristics, particularly in the large rated capacities. When loaded, stress is equally distributed to all rope parts in the sling body due to the helical manner in which rope are laid together.
Braided slings are formed by continuously plaiting, or braiding several ropes together to form the sling body and both in a single fabrication operation. Ends of individual roes are usually hand-tucked or mechanically spliced into component ropes of the body.
Braided slings are often selected where loads must be rolled or maneuvered, since the design creates friction to grip loads and resist rotation.
