Wire Rope Slings
All of our wire rope slings are crafted right here in the heartland using only the highest-quality, American-made rope. We’ve matched the science of design with skillful and experienced execution to bring you some of the most well-crafted wire rope slings around.
Eight-part braided slings are flexible and can snug up tightly around the load in choker hitches. They also offer outstanding handling characteristics, particularly in the larger rated capacities. When loaded, stress distributes to all rope parts in the sling body due to the helical manner in which ropes are laid together.
A grommet is a special type of sling which forms a continuous loop. Grommets have a wire rope body made up of six strands which are laid helically around a strand core. Either a handsplice or a mechanical splice then forms an endless sling body. The minimum circumference of the sling is 96 times the grommet’s body diameter.
Chain slings are made from high-strength alloy steel made specifically for the lifting industry. They have numerous configurations and end fittings. Standard slings are available in two grades of steel: Grade 80 and Grade 100. Chain slings are the most rugged slings available.
Flat Web Slings
To meet growing demands, the start of 2012 marked the opening of Mid-America’s new Synthetics Center. The fully operational division is dedicated to the design, manufacturing, research and testing of nylon and polyester web slings, synthetic ropes and polyester and high-performance roundslings.
Roundslings offer the user the ultimate in lifting security and rigging ease. They are constructed from a continuous loop of 100% polyester fibers. Every roundsling is covered with a double polyester woven jacket to protect the load-bearing fibers from damage.
