Nine-Part Body

  • Flexibility and handling ease
  • Sling body formed with nine parts
  • Greater lifting capacity
Nine-Part Body

Flexibility and handling ease for rigging large lifts are the main benefits of the 9-PART SLINGS. The 9-part sling is made by laying wire rope continuously through both eyes and the sling body. This results in a body formed with nine parts.

The improved efficiency of the 9-Part Super-Flex slings is backed with a proven design that provides internal adjustment to distribute the load among all nine parts of the sling body. The 9-part sling is made by laying wire rope components continuously through both eyes and the sling body. This results in a body with improved flexibility and handling ease for rigging large lifts. Only two splices occur in the entire sling – where the component rope ends are spliced at the eyes. The sling construction makes it possible to easily inspect all parts of the sling before and after each lift, which is important to remember if the sling is to be used many times.

When a sling body must conform to a tight choke hitch or must bend in a tight radius, such as around a pin or post, a 9-part construction may be the most suitable since it can develop greater lifting capacity from a smaller component rope.
