Aluminum and Copper Sleeves (Crimped Assemblies)

Choose from a wide range of duplex sleeves – made with either 99% pure copper or high-quality aluminum alloys – as well as aluminum oval sleeves.  All are economical terminations for your non-critical applications. Each has been heat-treated to offer maximum cold-forming properties and long service life.

We do not recommend using return loop eye slings with duplex sleeves for any lifting, hoisting or overhead lift systems, or where the full development of the component rope’s minimum breaking force is required.

With aluminum oval sleeves, the smaller sizes (1/4” through 7/16”) are drawn-tube extrusions, while the larger sizes (1/2” through 1 1/2”) are extruded from a high-grade aluminum alloy and are seamless.
