Permaloc™ Wire Rope Slings

Lift-All Permaloc slings are made using the Flemish Eye 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.

Maintains all the basic Lift-All wire rope sling features plus...


Eye/Eye Style Slings

  • Reserve strength: Integrity of eyes not solely dependent upon steel sleeves.
  • When specified, thimble eyes protect wire rope from wear for increased life.
  • Good abrasion resistance for longer life.
