In most material handling and lifting applications, industrial lifting slings are used with a crane or lift to promote the safe lifting and balancing of a variety of load capacities. Crane lifting slings either consist of chains, ropes, or webbing and are used together with an attached metal slinging device, such as a ring or hook. With such a diverse range of industrial lifting slings on the market, ensuring that you use the proper lifting sling for your heavy-duty lifting applications is critical. In some cases, a synthetic lifting sling made from polyester will be enough to meet your lifting needs. However, in many cases, a metal chain sling will provide you with the versatility to handle any industrial lifting application. At Crane Depot, we carry a large assortment of crane lifting slings for material handling and industrial lifting applications, and we are ready to provide you with the perfect lifting sling to meet your lifting needs.
