Types of Slings
Flat Eye & Eye Lifting Slings
Flat Eye & Eye (EE) lifting slings are made with a flat loop eye on each end and with a loop eye opening on the same plane as the sling body. This type of sling goes by a variety of names including flat eye & eye, eye & eye and double eye sling. Versatile and flexible, this sling can be used with all three hitches: vertical, basket and choker.
Twisted Eye Lifting Slings
Twisted Eye (TE) lifting slings are made with a loop eye on each end that is at a right angle to the plane of the sling body. This type of sling is commonly referred to as a “twisted eye” sling. A Twisted Eye sling is suitable for all hitches, but is recommended particularly for choker hitch application.
Endless Lifting Sling
Endless(EN) lifting slings are made with a continuous loop that is formed by joining ends of the webbing together with a load-bearing splice. It is extremely versatile as the design allows for the rotation of bearing points, which allows Endless Lifting Slings to avoid using one constant bearing point thereby increasing the life of the product. They are suitable for use with all three hitches: vertical, basket and choker.
