LiftAlloy BASKET TYPE CHAIN SLINGS






LiftAlloy Grade 80 chain slings
are recommended for rugged
industrial applications in harsh environments where flexibility,
abrasion resistance and long life are required. OSHA required
annual inspections can be performed by our trained personnel.
NOTE: Proof Coil Grad
30, High Test Grade 40 and Grade
70 transport tiedown chain and their fittings are not
recommended for listing or hoisting per ASME B30.9. 



FEATURES,
ADVANTAGES AND BENEFITS

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 chain
chart and Effect of Angle chart below. 

Effect
of Angle of Lift on a Sling's Rated Capacity 








DEFINITION 








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? 






What
capacity sling do I need? 












1.
Determine the weight that the sling
will be lifting [LW]. 







1.
Calculate the Reduction Factor [RF]. 
















a.
Using the angle from horizontal,
read across the Angle Chart to the
corresponding number of the
Reduction Factor column. 




2.
Calculate the Tension Factor [TF]. 















a.
Using the angle from horizontal,
read across the angle chart to the
corresponding number of Tension
Factor column.

b.
Divide sling height* [H] by sling
length* [L].

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
Reduced sling rating in this configuration = .667
(RF) x 6,000 lbs. = 4,000 lbs. of lifting capacity
per sling 




Example:
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) = 1,000
lbs. per sling 

Sling
capacity decreases as the angle
from horizontal decrease. Sling angles
of less than 30° are not recommended.
