Multiple Leg Slings
Many loads cannot be handled by a single leg sling, so over the years special purpose, Multiple Leg Slings have been developed. in its simplest form, the Multiple Leg Sling consists of two, three or four single leg slings connected at the lifting end by a common lifting link. Typical slings of this type are included in this catalog. Some applications require custom designed slings, unique to the job or type of load to be lifted. When specifying any sling, consider the load to be lifted and the conditions to be met on the job. The most important factor is the sling’s Rated Capacity. Other considerations include: the importance of flexibility; whether the sling will be subjected to high abrasion; how it is to be attached to the load; and type of splice required,
