Benefits of Slingmax’s Check-Fast Inspection System
Also known as the Check-Fast Inspection System, the Slingmax Check-Fast Inspection System is designed to improve on-the-job safety by offering simple, speedy, and reliable sling inspection. No longer does inspecting a sling require labor-intensive techniques and subjective guesswork that can be unreliable. The Check-Fast Inspection System saves valuable time and ensures job site safety by making sling inspection easier and faster before and after each use.
External Warning Indicator (EWI)
The Check-Fast External Warning Indicator measures each sling’s safety with a “GO/NO-GO” inspection device. A visible string that hangs next to the sling tag, the EWI provides objective pass/fail criteria that clearly indicates to the sling inspector whether or not the internal load-bearing core yarns may be damaged or are in good condition. For example, if a sling is severely overloaded beyond its capacity rating, the EWI is designed to retract before the sling fails. If the EWI isn’t visible, the sling is a “NO-GO.”
The Check-Fast Inspection System’s External Warning Indicator can also detect:
- ultraviolet (UV) light degradation
- fiber-on-fiber abrasion
- sling fatigue
Check-Fast System-Equipped Slings
Slingmax single-path slings are high-performance roundslings built to industry leading standards. They are the only single-path roundslings to feature an overload indicator courtesy of the Check-Fast Inspection System. The dependable slings are available in two options:
- High Performance K-Spec Fiber Round Slings with optional fiber optic inspection
- Polyester Round Slings with a polyester cover and polyester core yarn
Convenient Color-Coded Covers
While each single-path sling includes a Covermax cover (the most durable cover for any synthetic sling) the single-path polyester roundsling’s Covermax covers are color coded based on their capacity rating. From SPF 300 (purple) to SPF 2200 (blue), the sling color-coding allows crewmembers to quickly gauge the sling’s load capacity for each specific lift. Sling covers SPF 2600 and above are green.
