You Should Know Before Buying a Web Sling


Web slings are one of the most popular types of lifting sling on the market. They’re strong enough to support heavy loads and are versatile enough to be used in several different applications and industries.

Web slings are also popular because they’re relatively inexpensive—if one gets damaged or gets removed from service after an inspection, replacement slings can be easily found at a reasonable price.

We often find that customers contact us to order a new web sling, they aren’t aware of all the different configurations that exist and may not know how to order a direct replacement. Even if they have the sling with them, it can be difficult to understand the part number on the tag, or decipher the abbreviations and specifications on the tag to order a direct replacement.

In addition to the weight of the load you'll be lifting, there there are several things you’ll need to know to get a web sling that meets the needs of your lifting application, including:

  • Material – polyester or nylon
  • The type of eye or fitting needed on each end
  • The number of plies in the body
  • Width of the sling body
  • Overall length of the sling
  • Additional cut, wear, or abrasion protection
