EYE & EYE WIRE ROPE & SLINGS

TYPE IMP PERMALOC WIRE ROPE SLINGS

Our Permaloc Slings are made using the flemish splice technique to form the eyes. Unlike the simple return loop
method that places 100% of its strength on the swaged sleeve, Permaloc slings have reserve strength should the
sleeve become damaged in use.

Note: Larger diameter slings available. Basket ratings are based on a minimum D/d of 25.
¹ 1 Ton = 2,000 lbs.
² Minimum sling length when using standard eyes.
Do not exceed rated capacities. Sling capacity decreases as the angle from horizontal decreases. Slings should not
be used at angles of less than 30°. Refer to Effect of Angle chart.
Above rope prices are domestic, for imported rope call us.
Slings shorter than min. lengths listed may require reduced capacity ratings and/or eye lengths.

Effect of Angle of Lift on a Sling's Rated Capacity
DEFINITION
as used throughout this catalog, serves to alert users to potentially hazardous situations which often occur in the
use of these products. Failure to read, understand and follow the accompanying instructions on how to avoid these
situations could result in death or serious injury.

Using slings at an angle can become deadly if that angle is not taken into consideration when selecting the sling to be
used. The tension on each leg of the sling is increased as the angle of lift, from horizontal, decreases. It is most desirable
for a sling to have a larger angle of lift, approaching 90°. Lifts with angles of less than 30° from horizontal are not
recommended. If you can measure the angle of lift or the length and height of the sling as rigged, you can determine
the properly rated sling for your lift.
What would be the rating of each
sling rigged at this angle?

1. Determine the weight that the sling
   will be lifting [LW].
1. Calculate the Reduction Factor [RF].
2. Calculate the Tension Factor [TF].
a. Using the angle from horizontal,
     read across the Angle Chart to
     the corresponding number of the
    Reduction Factor column.

b. Divide sling height* [H] by sling

b. Divide sling height* [L] by sling
   length* [H].
2. Reduction Factor [RF] x the sling's
   rated capacity for the type hitch that
   will be used = Sling's Reduced Rating
3. Lifting Weight [LW] x the Tension
   Factor [TF] = Minimum Sling
    Rating  for the type of hitch that
    will be used.

Example:
Vertical Choker rating of each sling
= 6,000 lbs.
Measured Length (L) = 6 ft.
Measured Height (H) = 4 ft.
Reduction Factor (RF) = 4 (H)
÷ 6 (L) = .667
Example:
Sling capacity decreases as the angle
from horizontal decreases. Sling angles
of less than 30° are not recommended.
Load weight = 1,000 lbs.
Rigging - 2 slings in vertical hitch
Lifting Weight (LW) per sling =
500 lbs.
Measured Length (L) = 10 ft.
Measured Height (H) = 5 ft.
Tension Factor (TF) = 10 (L) ÷
5 (H) = 2.0
Minimum Vertical Rated Capacity
required for this lift = 500 (LW) x
2.0 (TF) = 1000 lbs. per sling
Reduced sling rating in this
configuration = .667
(RF) x 6,000 lbs. = 4,000 lbs. of lifting
capacity per sling
