Lifting Gear UK supplies a complete range of loose gear from Shackles, Eyebolts and Chain Slings, to Webbing Slings, Round Slings and Wire Rope Slings. Chain slings offer a robust, cost-effective lifting solution and can be safely used in a wide range of circumstances.
We provide chain slings in a single leg, 2 leg, 3 leg or 4 leg versions to which the capacity varies depending on the number of legs per chain sling. There are different grades of chain which also affect the capacities. Our Grade 8 and 10 lifting slings are available in various lengths from 3m up to 10m as standard.
All chain slings are fitted with shortening clutches and either ‘C’ Hooks, Sling Hooks or safety Hooks. Any size SWL is available upon request. It is very important to ensure that the angle that the chain sling is set to the load is correct or the loading can increase and lead to failure. The correct angle should be indicated on the lifting chain certification or off a chart.
We hold an extensive range of webbing slings, kept at the branch for hire or sale. Web slings are available in lengths of up to 24 meters and widths up to 600mm. They have a safe working load (SWL) of up to 24 tonnes. Round slings are available at up to 24 meters in length and have an SWL of up to 60 tonnes! Both webbing slings and polyester round slings are colour coded to easily identify the SWL of each sling.
We have access to the largest stock of Heavy Lifting Wire Ropes in the UK. Wire Rope circular slings are also available. See below product items for our full range of chain slings, web slings and loose gear. As ever, our specialists are always on hand to provide advice on all aspects of lifting equipment including compliance with all the latest regulations.
