TREMENDOUS LABOR SAVINGSTime is money and the ease of handling the ultra-light Twin-Path Extra Slings adds up to substantial labor savings, each and every time that the sling is used. There’s no longer the need to have an extra crane, forklift, or extra personnel to handle the sling. Twin-Path Extra Slings have documented labor savings and prove to be the least expensive sling you can buy.SUPERIOR ABRASION RESISTANCETwin-Path Extra Slings feature polyester or Cordura covers. These seamless covers are specifically woven to provide abrasion resistance. Testing done by Dupont indicates that the Cordura cover is a minimum of four times more abrasion resistant than other conventional fibers. Twin-Path Extra Slings with the Cordura cover will outlast and outperform all other synthetic slings. When abrasion resistance and longevity are a consideration and when only the best is good enough – choose Twin-Path Extra slings with the Cordura cover.SAFETY IN LIFTING AND PULLINGTwin-Path Extra Slings are without a doubt the most safety conscious product available. Tests have shown that these slings, featuring high performance fibers, recoil very little at break, thereby eliminating most of the devastating whiplash effects, characteristic of chain, wire rope, synthetic web, and rope.LITTLE OR NO STRETCHA Twin-Path Extra Sling (TPXKS 11000 x 27 ft.-4 in.) was proof tested to 220,000 lbs. in a vertical hitch. The sling was held for a ten minute period. A total elongation of 2 inches was recorded. Low elongation works for you because Twin-Path Extra Slings are not abraded like other synthetic products, as they stretch “over” the load when the load is being lifted.THE PERFECT PRODUCT FOR NUCLEAR ENVIRONMENTSInformation on the properties of Aramid fiber’s performance in nuclear environments is detailed in a report titled, “Radiation Effects on Organic Materials in Nuclear Power Plants” (Report No. EPRI NP 2128, dated November 1981). When Aramid fibers were exposed to radiation at the level of 1,000,000,000 rads, there was no effect on the performance characteristics of the fiber.USER FRIENDLYTwin-Path Extra High Performance Slings are easy to handle. Lightweight Twin-Path Extra Slings help eliminate back, hand, foot and head injuries that occur when handling wire rope and chain slings that are heavy and awkward.SPACE SAVERSometimes space is a scarce commodity. Storage problems are easily resolved as Twin-Path Extra Slings require substantially less storage space than the cumbersome wire rope and chain slings that they replace.MAINTENANCE FREETwin-Path Slings do not corrode and do not require lubrication or reannealing.
Twin-Path Extra High Performance Sling
SUPER STRONG – ULTRA LIGHTTwin-Path Extra Slings are manufactured with high performance Aramid and High Density Polyethylene fibers, incredible materials that are many times stronger than steel. A TUFXKS 7000 x 35 ft. would weigh a mere 60 lbs. and has a basket work load of 140,000 lbs. A wire rope sling of equal length and strength would weigh 588 lbs.
