Rigging equipment such as flat and round slings often represent a good alternative to chains and ropes: They are lighter, easier to handle, protect the surface of the conveyed goods and can be stowed in the smallest of spaces.
Round slings adapt flexibly to the conveyed goods and are therefore particularly suitable for surface-sensitive loads; among other things, they are an ideal solution for lifting rolls of sheet metal.
Round slings from norelem comply with DIN EN 1492-2. They consist of high-strength, endless polyester fibre strands, which are covered with a durable protective sheath. The latter is made of seamless woven polyester and has a polyurethane-impregnated, abrasion-resistant surface. In addition to the round slings, matching round sling hooks and connecting links are also available from norelem.
Flat slings are used wherever there is a wide and clean contact surface. Due to the wide contact surface, the load pressure is distributed and the goods are protected. Especially practical: Flat slings can simply be slipped under a load, making handling easier.
The products from norelem comply with DIN EN 1492-1. They consist of a high-strength polyester webbing with a polyurethane impregnated, abrasion-resistant surface.
Round and flat slings from norelem stretch significantly less than 7 % under full load. They are tested to a 7x safety factor and have the CE mark according to the European Machinery Directive. All slings have a high UV resistance and low moisture absorption. They can be used in an extended temperature range from -40 °C to +100 °C.
