Manufacturing Efficiency and Cost Holloway Endless & Eye and Eye Round Slings are manufactured using a state-of-the-art process that ensures high quality and consistency. The slings are made from the highest quality polyester webbing sourced from reputable suppliers. Skilled craftsmen weave and sew the slings together to ensure durability and reliability. These slings are generally more cost-effective than nylon rigging straps due to manufacturing efficiencies.
Storage and Length Considerations When not in use, it is recommended to store Holloway Endless & Eye and Eye Round Slings in a dark, dry, cool location free from mechanical and environmental damage. The slings come in various lengths, ranging from 18 inches to over 150 feet, depending on the capacity. It is important to measure the sling length from one end or bearing point to the other.
At Holloway, we offer a variety of slings made by our own manufacturing process. These slings can be fabricated from conventional fibers like nylon and polyester, as well as more exotic fibers like Honeywell Spectra®. Custom rope slings, some of which are adjustable, provide added convenience and flexibility in rigging operations.
Endless and eye and eye round slings are typically made from polyester webbing known for its strength, durability, and resistance to abrasion, cutting, and chemicals. They are lightweight and easy to handle. Endless slings have a continuous loop, while eye and eye slings have a loop at each end, making them ideal for connecting to hooks, shackles, and other rigging hardware. These slings are available in a wide range of sizes and capacities to meet various application needs.
Endless and eye and eye round slings offer superior rigging efficiency compared to conventional round slings, wire ropes, and braided ropes. They can be reshaped to fit perfectly on load-bearing surfaces, resulting in a more efficient load transfer and reduced risk of damage to the sling or the load.
To achieve the loads, they were designed for the endless and eye and eye round sling system that needs to have a minimum D/d ratio of 3:1. The sling ratings are based on a standard wide-body shackle (or equivalent bearing surface) of equal or greater capacity. The slings are typically rated in pounds, tons, or metric tons, with a design factor of 5:1, meaning they can withstand a load five times greater than their working load limit before breaking.
Holloway Endless & Eye and Eye Round Slings are a versatile and durable lifting solution for a wide range of applications. When used properly and following recommended safety practices, these slings provide a safe and efficient way to lift and rig heavy loads.
