Wire ropes are made up of several strands of metal wire twisted together to form a composite rope. These strands of wire are twisted around a core, which helps support the strands so that they do not jam up against or contact one another under normal loads. Wire ropes are available in a wide range of diameters and are mainly made up of steel. Some of the different types of wire rope available include:
- Air-craft cable (GAC)
- Bulk wire rope
- Crane lines
- Galvanized wire rope
- Hoist cables
- Lifting slings
- Load lines
- Logging wire ropes (main lines, haul backs, and guy lines)
- Scrow bridles
- Swage wire rope (Western Swage)
- Tow lines
Chain slings tend to be the ideal choice for operating rigging and material handling equipment in high temperatures or rugged conditions that would abrade or destroy other types of slings. This type of sling is long lasting, durable, and flexible, as well as easily inspected and repaired. Chain slings are completely collapsible, making them convenient to store, and are strong enough to securely adhere to the contours of a load. Some of the different types of chain slings available include:
- Bridles (2, 3 & 4 legs)
- Decorative chain slings
- Galvanized chain slings
- General purpose chain slings (grade 30 and grade 43)
- Lifting chain slings (grade 80 and grade 100)
- Tie down chain slings (grade 70)
Web slings are the perfect tool for lifting delicate equipment. This type of sling is made from high-quality, durable polyester and nylon fibres for a higher level of strength, excellent abrasion resistance, and minimized elongation for absorbing the effects of heavy shock loads. Web slings are available in a range of different tensile strengths, making it easy to find the right fit for your specific needs.
Round slings, also known as tubular slings, are made up of a continuous loop of synthetic polyester yarns that are fully enclosed in a protective cover. This type of sling is popular for its versatility and strength, as it can be used in choker, vertical, and basket hitch applications. All round slings are colour coated to indicate the load capacity and come with a durable tag, making it easy to identify the proper round sling for the job.
Synthetic rope is a great alternative to steel cables when it comes to winching vehicles that are sensitive to weight, especially over the front axle. This is because synthetic rope has a higher flexibility and lower weight than steel, making it easier to handle. Synthetic rope will also not kink or develop burrs that can occur on steel cables.
Yellow Poly Rope
Yellow polypropylene rope is highly versatile, as it offers very little stretch and is perfect for use in both wet and dry conditions. This type of rope offers a sure gripping surface, providing strength that you can depend on. Yellow poly rope is available in a wide range of diameters and lengths, making it easy to find the right rope for the job.
Industrial rope is an ideal alternative to yellow poly ropes because it is more UV resistant and offers a higher level of strength. This type of rope is designed to offer superior handling, as it softens with use rather than hardening over time. Industrial rope is perfect for both dry and wet conditions, suffering no loss of strength when wet.
Marine rope is the perfect choice for boat applications, such as anchoring, rigging, docking, sailing, and racing, as well as some boat accessories. This type of rope offers high durability and strength in wet conditions and is available in a wide range of materials. Some of the different types of marine ropes available include:
- Double braided nylon and polyester marine rope
- Multiline composite marine ropes
- Nylon marine rope
- PolyDacron marine rope
- Polyester marine rope
In order to properly ensure that all wire rope and chain sling products are being used as safely and securely as possible, it is important to use the right hardware. Some of the different types of hardware for wire rope and chain sling products include:
- Load binders
- Master links
- Quick fix knobs
- Tie downs
- Wire rope clips
