3/8" X 12' Wire Rope Sling, Eye & Eye, 6 X 19 IWRC, Made in
Wire Rope Slings are popular at construction sites because of their low cost
and resistance to abrasion in rugged work environments. High tensile strength
steel wires are combined in various constructions to form ropes with specific
characteristics. Standard constructions for slings are referred to as 6 x 19 or
6 x 36, designating the total number of wires being used. The greater the
number of wires, the greater the flexibility and the lower the resistance to
abrasion. Typical sling ropes use 6 x 19 in the smaller diameters and 6 x 37 at
1 1/4” diameter and larger.
Eye & Eye style slings are the most popular, but numerous end fittings
are available to suit specific needs. Lift-All Permaloc wire rope slings use a
Flemish Eye Splice to form the sling eyes. This method provides an additional
measure of safety over the Return Eye style, should the steel sleeve used to
form the eye become damaged.
