Our Gripper Slings are strong, safe and gentle. Their versatility and durability help you save time and money.
The GRIPPER® Sling’s all steel metal mesh construction tolerates even the most abrasive loads without fear of sling failure. In addition, its environmental tolerance permits use at temperatures of up to 550 degrees F., and even higher when made of a special alloy.
Proof-tested at 200 percent of its rated work load, every GRIPPER® Sling’s wide bearing surface improves load balance and gripping power. And since it won’t kink or tangle in use like wire rope or chain slings, loads won’t shift or slip. What’s more, its woven spiral construction eliminates the danger of sudden failure such as can occur with a rotting core in a synthetic sling or a weak link in a chain sling. All GRIPPER® products are manufactured in accordance with OSHA and ANSI B-30.9 requirements.
The GRIPPER® Sling’s interwoven, smooth spiral wires offer complete flexibility. So the sling conforms to the contours of its load, eliminating the dangers of gouging, marring, crushing or cutting so common with wire rope or chain slings.
Easy to rig in either a choke or basket hitch, the GRIPPER® Sling greatly reduces rigging and unhitching time, and often eliminates the need for two-legged slings or spreader bars.
The GRIPPER® Sling’s ability to outlast wire rope and synthetic slings will cut your costs in the long run. And, of course, you’ll also reduce the costs of damage to your loads. Finally, GRIPPER® Slings can be repaired or restored at a fraction of the cost of a new sling.
The GRIPPER® Sling is ideal for handling all types of products, such as coiled strip, thin walled tubing, polished shafting, hot rolled flat bar stock, round bar stock, sheet steel, lumber, paper machine rolls, precast hollow core concrete beams, pre-stressed concrete, structural beams, cold drawn flats, irregularly shaped objects, and loads subjected to hot or corrosive environments.
