THOR-TEX USA Polyester Web Slings FAQs

When using lifting slings, always inspect them for wear or damage and remove any defective ones. Adhere to the manufacturer’s Working Load Limit (WLL) and never exceed it. Use the appropriate sling for the load and ensure it's evenly distributed and secure. Maintain proper sling angles to prevent undue stress and use the right hardware for different hitches. Store slings in a cool, dry place away from sunlight and chemicals, and hang them to prevent damage.

Lifting slings are versatile tools used in various industries. They are essential for moving heavy materials on construction sites, in warehouses, and manufacturing plants. In industrial settings, they lift and transport heavy machinery. In marine and offshore environments, they handle cargo and equipment. Logistics operations rely on slings for efficient loading and unloading, and maintenance tasks use slings to lift and position components securely.

OSHA mandates that slings must be made from high-quality materials like nylon, polyester, steel wire, or alloy steel chains. Slings must be marked with the manufacturer’s ID, load capacity, and type. Regular inspections are required to identify and remove damaged slings. Slings must be used according to the manufacturer’s guidelines and within their rated capacities, with proper configurations and hardware to prevent overloading and stress. Following OSHA standards ensures safe lifting operations.

Lifting slings should be inspected before each use for any signs of damage. In addition to daily checks, regular thorough inspections by a qualified person are recommended at least annually. Lifting slings should be discarded if they show any signs of significant damage, such as:

  • Cuts, tears, or burns in the webbing
  • Broken wires or excessive wear on wire rope slings
  • Bent, cracked, or damaged links in chain slings
  • Melting or weakening of synthetic fibers due to heat exposure
The frequency of these inspections can vary depending on the sling type, usage frequency, and working conditions. For more information about Sling Safety see our Web Sling Bulletin."
