The big bang recorded on video – used lifting sling undergoes tensile test

What remains of the original 280t breaking load?

Gleistein Ropes wanted to know exactly what effect internal abrasion can have on lifting sling performance when the slings have been exposed to dirt, the elements and general wear and tear over time. A lifting sling that had been heavily used for wind turbine installations over seven years was put to the test. How much of its original 280t breaking load could still be delivered? And is there a solution to extend maximum performance and service life? Check out this new video and find out!  

The latest GeoLift brochure can also be downloaded here. It provides an overview of Gleistein Ropes solutions for lifting – including the GeoProtect Jacket.
