Making light work of heavy lifting

UPDRAFT lifting slings, made by Gleistein

At around just 1/7th the weight of their steel wire rope counterparts and boasting even greater strength, textile fibre lifting slings by Gleistein Ropes subsidiary UPDRAFT enhance handling and safety for all lifting operations. Their extremely low weight also ensure that transportation, connection and removal is far easier than when using conventional solutions. Made of Gleistein DynaOne® HS rope with the highest quality Dyneema® fibres and featuring elongation characteristics that are on par with wire rope, reliability and strength is assured – while service life is often significantly higher too.

Take a look at the following video to see UPDRAFT lifting slings in action at a Toyota production facility. More information can also be obtained on the UPDRAFT website.
