Twin-Path® Extra Slings with Covermax® and K-Spec® Core Yarn

Twin-Path® Extra Slings with Covermax® and K-Spec® Core Yarn

US Patent #4,850,629 #5,651,572 CN #1,280,458 #2,195,393 Italy #97300367.6 Japan #2929431 Australia #707924

Twin-Path® synthetic roundslings have Check-Fast® Inspection overload indicators, Covermax® Covers for superior abrasion resistance, and inner red covers as an aid to inspection.  Twin-Path® slings are used worldwide in place of steel rigging for heavy lifts.  They are approximately 10% of the weight of a steel sling and are repairable.  The Twin-Path® sling design, which has two individual paths of fiber working as one sling, gives the rigger confidence.  These slings have less than 1% elongation at rated capacity.  If productivity, safety, and precision are important, then Twin-Path® high-performance roundslings are your best choice.  Independent testing shows that K-Spec® core yarn is the longest lasting load-bearing core yarn in any sling.

Check-Fast Inspection System

Check-Fast® Inspection System

US Patent #7,661,737

The Check-Fast® Inspection System is designed to improve job site safety.  The Check-Fast® External Warning Indicator (EWI) provides a criteria for pass/fail inspection when the internal load-bearing core yarn may be damaged.  The Check-Fast® Inspection System can also indicates ultraviolet (UV) light degradation, fiber-on-fiber abrasion, fatigue, and severe overload.  If the sling is overloaded beyond its rated capacity, the EWI is designed to retract before the sling fails.  The sling inspector now has an objective “GO/NO-GO” inspection device rather than relying on subjective and labor-intensive inspection techniques to guess if the load-bearing core yarns are in good condition.

Sparkeater Synthetic Slings

SparkEater® Synthetic Slings

US Patent #4,850,629 CN #1,280,458

The Sparkeater® sling (SE) is the sling to use when the job site is in a hot environment (up to 300°F or 150°C).  These slings are made with high-temperature core yarns and a high temperature cover.  Sparkeater® slings, as with all Twin-Path® slings, come with an inner red cover that provides an early warning for damage, as well as the patented Check-Fast® Inspection System.

Twin-Path Two Leg Bridles

Twin-Path® Two Leg Bridles

US Patent #5,727,833 & #4,850,629

TL Simply the lightest and strongest synthetic bridles in the world today. These are perfect to replace existing chain and wire rope bridles. This makes the Twin-Path® Two Leg Bridle extremely versatile on the job.

Twin-Path® Eye & Eye Synthetic Slings

Twin-Path® Eye & Eye Synthetic Sling

US Patent #5,727,833 & #4,850,629

EE Usually an eye and eye sling is made from a round sling with a sleeve over it to form the eyes at each end. But our TPXCEE is a single-bodied sling with integrated eyes. It can be manufactured using either K-Spec® core yarn or polyester.

Twin-Path Adjustable Bridle Slings

Twin-Path® Adjustable Bridle Sling

US Patent #4,850,629 CN 1,280,458

The Twin-Path® Adjustable Bridle (TPXA with K-Spec® fiber core yarn or TPA with polyester core yarn) is a two-leg bridle made with a Twin-Path® roundsling and adjustable bridle ring.  When tension is applied to the Twin-Path® Adjustable Bridle, it self-adjusts until the lifting point is over the center of gravity (COG). This allows the two legs to be adjusted for a level lift without the need for custom slings or hardware.

Fiber Optic Inspection

Fiber Optic Inspection

US Patent #4,850,629 #5,651,572 CN #1,280.458 #2,195,393 Italy #97300367.6 Japan #2929431 Australia #707924

Fiber Optic Inspection is an optional add-on for Twin-Path® slings. If crushing or heat damage has occurred to the sling, the fiber optic cable will no longer have the ability to transmit light from one end to the other. This indicates to the inspector that the sling should be removed from service and returned for factory inspection. The fiber optic cable will conduct light using natural, overhead, or flashlight sources.

Shackle Pin Pads

Shackle Pin Pads


The pin area of a shackle can damage synthetic slings.  Placing synthetic slings on the pin should be avoided.  Shackles have a sharp edge where the pin goes through the shackle ear.  If the sling is rigged on this area, it can become severely damaged.  If you must rig on the pin, protect your sling with a Shackle Pin Pad.  The Shackle Pin Pad is sized for the model of shackle and protects the sling along the entire pin.

Cornermax Pads

CornerMax® Pad

Patent Pending

CornerMax® Pads are one of the engineered cut protection options developed by Slingmax® Rigging Solutions.  The CornerMax® Pad is designed to be used on loads that have a 90 degree straight edge.  The pad creates a “tunnel” of cut protection known as the “no-touch zone”.  The edge of the load does not come in contact with the pad or sling, thus protecting the sling.  Note that the sides of the load must completely support the pads in order to create and maintain the “tunnel”. CornerMax® Pads have a rated working load limit of 25,000 pounds per inch (4464kg per cm) of sling width.

Cornermax Sleeves

CornerMax® Sleeve

The CornerMax® Sleeve is the ideal solution to protect synthetic slings from cutting when it is not practical to use a CornerMax® Pad. This can be due to the geometry of the load edge not allowing space for a pad or repetitive uses, such as unloading steel coils.  The extreme cut resistance of the sleeve is attributed to its proprietary weave design and is unmatched in the rigging industry with a cut protection rating of 25,000 pounds (4464kg per cm) per inch of sling width. The CornerMax® Sleeve is made with high-tech fiber and is laboratory tested for cut resistance.  In some applications, the CornerMax® Sleeve may be attached to the sling to prevent sliding of the pad between lifts.  The true benefits of the revolutionary material far outweigh the costs and now provide for the use of synthetic slings in applications previously dominated by heavy chain, mesh, and wire rope slings.

G-Link Connectors

G-Link™ Connectors

US Patent #5,651,573 CN #2,198,821 Italy #97302680.0 Japan #Hei9-94730 Australia #710067

The magic of one piece hardware that does so many things. You can use it on Twin-Path®, web and single path round slings, for attaching hooks or rings, connecting two slings together, as sliding choker connection, as an adjustable sling, as a choke lock connection or to shorten a sling’s reach.

Gator-Flex Nine Part Grommets

Gator-Flex® Nine Part Grommets

US Patent #5,561,973

Gator-Flex® Grommets are endless for heavy lifts that require short connection lengths.  These slings can be made shorter than standard multi-part slings, but maintain all of their advantages.  They are the most flexible grommets in the industry.

Hydraulic Pad Eye Tester

Pad Eye Tester – Hydraulic

Testing of the hardware, slings and hoist are commonplace before making a lift. However, testing the connection from which the hoist is hanging is rarely part of the prelift testing. This pad eye tester weighs as little as forty pounds and attaches directly to the pad eye in the ceiling deck, or bulkhead. Test with up to 25 tons of force to verify that the pad eye will hold to the surface. This idea came from a discussion with riggers in a shipyard who had been involved in accidents when pad eyes broke from their welds and the rigging gear and load dropped.

Chain Saddle Ring

Chain Saddle Ring

US Patent #4,241,575 CN #1,086,510; British #2,029,370

This product gives a chain bridle, length adjustment capabilities in each chain leg. It aids the rigger in placing the lifting point over the center of gravity so the load will lift in a level manner. Different length chains or chains with different attachments can be interchanged in the Saddle Ring for added utility.
