Dawnerz Lifting Sling - Type 3 Eye to Eye Flat - Polyester

WHAT ARE TYPE 3 WEBBING SLINGS?

Type 3 slings, also known as eye and eye slings or double eye slings, are a specific kind of webbing sling featuring flat loops at each end. These flat eyes allow for easier connection to lifting points compared to other sling configurations. They are typically made from high-strength polyester for durability and are popular for their versatility in various lifting application

Softness and Flexibility: These slings are easy to maneuver around loads and effectively absorb shock, reducing the risk of damage to both the sling and the load.

Wide Load-Carrying Area: They offer an even distribution of weight, minimizing stress on specific points and enhancing load stability.

Easy Damage Inspection: The design allows for quick identification of potential wear or tear, ensuring timely maintenance and replacement.

Durable Construction with Reinforced Eyes: Each sling is equipped with a flat loop eye on both ends, often referred to as "flat eye and eye" or "double eye." The reinforced webbing eyes provide added protection and extend the sling's lifespan by preventing wear at the connection points.

Type 3 Eye to Eye Sling Hitch Techniques

Type 3 eye and eye slings, renowned for their versatility, excel in various lifting scenarios. Unlocking their full potential hinges on selecting the right hitch configuration for the job. The three most common hitches are vertical, choker, and basket

The vertical hitch, also known as the straight hitch, is the most fundamental and widely used configuration for Type 3 slings. It involves attaching both sling eyes directly to the lifting point, creating a single, straight suspension. The vertical hitch reigns supreme for its simplicity and stability. Straightforward to set up, it offers exceptional control for general lifting tasks. This configuration also utilizes the full rated capacity of the sling, making it ideal for handling heavy loads. An added benefit is the reduced sling wear thanks to the straight suspension minimizing abrasion compared to other hitches.

Applications:

  • Lifting prefabricated building materials like concrete panels.
  • Securing machinery components during installation or maintenance.
  • General lifting tasks where stability and maximum capacity are crucial.

The choker hitch involves passing one sling eye through the other, creating a loop that encircles the load. This effectively "chokes" the load, providing a secure grip. The choker hitch thrives in situations with limited headroom due to its compact profile requiring less vertical space than other configurations. This tighter grip, achieved by the choker action encircling the load, proves particularly beneficial for uneven or unstable objects. Additionally, a choker hitch allows you to maximize lifting capacity with limited sling length compared to a vertical hitch.

Applications:

  • Lifting pipes, beams, or logs where a tight grip is essential.
  • Securing cylindrical objects like tanks or spools of cable.
    Lifting in confined spaces with limited headroom.

Choker hitches can significantly reduce the sling's working load limit (WLL). Always consult the manufacturer's derating chart to determine the safe lifting capacity for a specific choker hitch configuration.

The basket hitch involves passing each sling eye around opposing sides of the load and connecting them at a lifting point above. This creates a basket-like configuration that cradles the load securely. The basket hitch shines when exceptional stability and control are paramount. It distributes the load evenly across a wider area, making it the go-to choice for lifting unbalanced or oddly shaped objects. This wider lifting point also unlocks increased lifting capacity compared to a single vertical sling. An additional benefit is damage prevention, as the wider load-bearing surface minimizes pressure points, reducing the risk of harm to delicate materials.

Applications:

  • Lifting machinery components with uneven weight distribution.
  • Securing crates, boxes, or pallets for transport.
    Lifting fragile objects requiring a wider, more even distribution of lifting force.

By understanding the strengths and applications of each hitch configuration, you can maximize the lifting potential of your Type 3 eye and eye slings. Remember to consult the sling's user manual and capacity charts for safe working load limits based on the chosen hitch type.

Safety Information - Inspect Before You Lift

For safe and reliable lifting, regular inspection of your Type 3 web slings is crucial. Even minor damage can significantly impact a sling's strength and lead to potential hazards.

Here's a reminder of the importance of sling inspection:

  • Worn or damaged slings pose a serious safety risk.
  • Regular inspections can identify potential issues before they escalate.
  • Proper maintenance extends the lifespan of your slings and saves you money in the long run.

We recommend following a comprehensive sling inspection program as outlined by industry standards. For detailed information on proper sling inspection and safe sling use, please refer to our informative resources:

This web sling safety bulletin provides valuable guidance on:

  • Identifying common signs of wear and tear on Type 3 web slings

Essential Information for Responsible Lifting

Our guides are packed with crucial safety information regarding the proper use of synthetic lifting slings and rigging straps. However, it's important to understand that they cannot encompass every aspect of safe material and load handling.

Your Responsibility: A Thorough Risk Assessment

  • Before utilizing any lifting or rigging equipment, it's your responsibility to conduct a comprehensive risk assessment of the specific situation. This includes factors like:
  • Load weight and type: Accurately assessing the weight and characteristics of the load is essential for selecting the appropriate sling capacity.
  • Lifting environment: Consider any environmental factors that might impact the lifting operation, such as extreme temperatures or uneven surfaces.
  • Sling selection and inspection: Choose slings with the appropriate weight capacity and inspect them thoroughly for any signs of damage before use.
  • Lifting techniques: Ensure proper lifting techniques are employed by qualified personnel to avoid accidents.


Safety Beyond the Guide

We strongly recommend seeking additional training and familiarizing yourself with best practices for safe material handling and load control. Resources such as industry standards, safety certifications, and qualified lifting professionals can provide valuable insights.

Consequences of Neglect

Failing to conduct a thorough risk assessment and neglecting proper safety procedures can have serious consequences. Ignoring these precautions could lead to equipment failure, loss of load, and potentially severe injury or even death.

By prioritizing safety and taking responsibility for a comprehensive risk assessment, you can ensure the safe and successful operation of your lifting equipment.
