Magnetic Sling Protectors
Magnetic Sling Protectors are a solution to many of your rigging and material handling nightmares. Lightweight and easy to use, these wear protection devices enhance the service cycle of the rigging and help to “soften” edges that could damage slings. These plastic protectors attach with magnets to steel corners and keep the sling from contacting the load. For use with synthetic, wire rope and synthetic rope applications. Just snap in place and put the sling on top of the protector. This product is not for use at temperatures below negative 20 degrees Fahrenheit or above temperatures of 220 degrees Fahrenheit. The maximum loading is 12,500 PSI. Made of nylon, the Magnetic Sling Protectors are only 1/7th the weight of steel, no tools are needed since magnets allow for quick and easy attachment and removal. Available in 9-inch, 12-inch and 18-inch models.
The CornerMax™ Sleeve is the latest in rigging solutions from Slingmax® Solutions. The CornerMax™ Sleeve is the ideal solution to protect synthetic slings from cutting when it is not practical to use a CornerMax™ Pad, whether due to curvature of the load edge or repetitive uses such as unloading steel coils. Independent field and laboratory testing has shown the CornerMax™ Sleeve to be extremely cut resistant. The CornerMax™ Sleeve is made with Dyneema® Fiber and is proven tough. To prevent sliding, the 6″ wide CornerMax™ Sleeve has been sewn down the middle (5″) on each end of the Twin-Path® Extra Sling (pictured). The true benefits of this revolutionary material far outweigh the costs and now provide for the use of synthetic slings in applications previously dominated by heavy chain, mesh and wire rope slings.
Exposure of a sling to load edges or corners requires protection that is not susceptible to cutting because of touchness or zero contact. As shown in the photo, the CornerMax™ Pad forms a tunner between the load edge and the pad. This geometric separation is essential in protecting the pad itself from contacting the load edge, which provides maximum protection to the sling.
