Round Sling

Round Slings are particularly useful for lifting loads of a fragile nature and which may be damaged by the harder webbing.

Round Slings are manufactured to BS EN 1492-2:2000 with a safety factor of 7:1 from 100% polyester.

The outer cover is a seamless polyester sleeve which has excellent abrasion resistance.

The core consists of a continuous hank of high tenacity polyester yarn which is immensely strong and durable.

Due to the parallel fibres in the core the stretch experienced with a round sling is less than 3% at the safe working load.

Round slings, as with flat webbing slings, are colour coded for ease of identification and are available in a complete range of sizes and strengths. Allsafe supplies round slings with a capacity of up to 125 tons.

Advantages of Webbing Slings and Round Slings

  • All slings are individually numbered for traceability and safety.
  • Lighter than chain or wire rope – less likely to cause injury if left swinging from crane.
  • Less weight – less risk of back injuries, lower transport and shipping costs.
  • Supple – can adapt to fit the load without damaging the lad or the webbing. Chain may kink and cause damage to both the load and chain.
  • No hidden corrosion – can be easily checked by eye for damage – if it looks all right, it is all right.
  • Does not weaken with age.
  • Ability to absorb shocks.





  • Failure to comply with this warning may result in serious load damage and death or injury Use only if trained.
  • Can fail if damaged, misused or overloaded.
  • Inspect sling for damage before each use.
  • Always protect sling webbing from sharp edges of load.
  • Do not attempt to use sling above rated lifting capacity.
  • Do not attempt to use sling above rated lifting capacity tag is removed or unreadable.
  • Avoid acid, alkali and sunlight.
  • Do not tie knots in sling webbing as strength is greatly reduced.
  • Do not use sling if there are any signs of cut webbing, heat or chemical damage, excessive wear, or the other defects.
  • Consult sling load chart for basket hitch capacity reduction due to sling angle.
  • Do not try to repair sling by yourself.
