New Website Pages for Wire Rope and Winch Strap Products

We’ve been doing a little work on our USCargoControl.com website, with a goal of making it easier for customers to choose exactly what they need. Some products are available in so many sizes and configurations it can be difficult to wade through them all to find exactly what you’re looking for. Our winch straps and wire rope categories were the first to be updated.

Winch straps are now first narrowed down by color selection (yellow, blue, red, green), then by hardware type (flat hook, wire hook, etc.). There is also still an option to shop for truck winches by sizes as well, with links that show all 4″ winch straps, 3″ winch straps, and 2″ winch straps.

What’s Happening at US Cargo Control

While the big news around US Cargo Control lately has been the completion of our new warehouse addition, a few other exciting things have been taking place over the last few months that we’d like to mention.

Web Sling & Tie Down Association

In October, US Cargo Control became members of the Web Sling & Tie Down Association (WSTDA). The association is a non-profit organization that voluntarily publishes recommended standards, education and training materials, and warnings for businesses in the web sling and tie down industry.

Tim Guenther, CEO, and Tim Sanders, VP Warehouse Operations, attended the association’s fall meeting, which included presentations and committee meetings on the standards development process for operating manuals, labels, and other warning products.

Guenther says the development of USCC’s newest line of straps, BlackLine, was eye-opening in terms of technical specifications, testing, etc., that go into to ensuring the safety and integrity of tie down products.

“The WSTDA is the gold standard when it comes to equipment testing, manufacturing procedures, and proper end use of web sling and tie down products,” said Guenther. “We’re pleased to be a part of such a great organization that has the best interests of both customers and suppliers in mind.”

The WSTDA includes 116 member organizations, including manufacturers and suppliers of synthetic web slings and tie downs, polyester round slings, synthetic webbing, fibers, thread and related companies throughout the United States and Canada.

How to Choose a Lifting Sling

Choosing the right sling for lighting can be confusing, but it’s important to take the environment and conditions where the lifting sling will be used into consideration.

Nylon lifting sling

Nylon lifting slings are a popular choice because of their multi-purpose uses. A nylon web sling is unaffected by petroleum products like grease and oil. Nylon slings are also resilient to specific chemicals including ethers, strong alkalies and aldehydes. Nylon webbing is not a good choice for uses involving bleaching agents or acids, or for use in temperatures over 194 degrees Fahrenheit (90 degrees Celsius). Nylon also stretches at approximately 8-10%, so it should not be used when elongation is not intended.

 

Polyester lifting sling

Polyester Round Eye & Eye Lifting Sling

Like a nylon lifting straps, polyester round slings also have temperature guidelines, and are not advised for use in temperatures over 194 degrees Fahrenheit (90 degrees Celsius). Unlike nylon, they will stretch only approximately 3% of its rated capacity. A polyester round sling can handle acidic environments because the fabric is not affected by bleaching agents or common acids. Polyester webbing, however, should not be used if it will come in contact with sulfuric acids or alkaline.

 

Chain lifting sling

Chain lifting slings are ideal for rugged environments and jobs. They resist abrasions, cutting and can maintain their strength and integrity even in extremely high temperatures up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (204 degree Celsius). Chain slings are generally constructed in Grade 80 steel, but a Grade 100 chain is usually available on request. Grade 100 chain offers more strength (about 25% more) for lifting chains, yet weighs less than traditional Grade 80 lift chains. Another benefit of a chain sling is its ability to be customized for almost any type of lift. However, a chain hoist can be expensive and the prices can vary due to the market fluctuations.

 

Wire rope lifting sling

Wire rope slings are similar to a chain sling in that it offers excellent durability, strength and resistance to high temperatures. Wire rope, however, is more cost-efficient than chain so it’s a great choice is price is a concern. Because abrasion-resistance and flexibility of the wire rope can change depending on its configuration, a chain sling can be manufactured using a specific type of wire rope. Typically, wire rope is made from either 6×19 or 6×37 classes of rope. A 6×19 is the most widely used because of its ideal combination of flexibility and abrasion resistance. A 6×37 class rope is more flexible, but offers less resistance to abrasion.

 

Other factors will go into determining which lifting sling type is best for your specific job, such as the item(s) being lifted, capacities needed, etc. For help choosing a lift sling, call our product specialists at 800-660-3585. They’ll be happy to any answer questions you may have.
