Superflex Wire Rope Slings
Superflex slings are made from a high tensile plaited wire rope laid in a four by three sinnet configuration. Superflex slings are extremely flexible and have excellent applications in general lifting and slinging particularly where choking of the load is required. The flexible nature of Superflex ensures a friction grip that is superior to standard wire rope slings in most applications.
Superflex slings should be discarded when there is more than one cord broken at one place or more than 60 wires are broken in any length equal to four diameters of the cable. Superflex slings should also be discarded if there is a detrimental condition such as excessive corrosion, heavy impact loads, severe overloading or the sling has been subjected to heat above 400 degrees C.
