Lifting slings are something that is at the heart of every lift.
Conversations are had days, weeks and even months in advance so that the correct lifting slings are available at the time of the lift. Most companies will have a base stock of lifting slings in their inventory to cover off on most lifts which may be a combination of a chain sling, wire rope sling, or synthetic slings (or softies as they are commonly known). A lot of times a last minute addition to the rigging arrangement is required.
With individual employees being involved in the Lifting and Rigging Industry across Australia for over 25 years, the team at LiftQuip Australia understand the process and our stock levels and approach reflect this understanding. We are involved with our valued customers at the early stages of lifts and can advise on what lifting equipment is readily available and what items might have a longer lead time, as well as giving valuable information with alternatives that might be a better fit for purpose.
Our general approach to lifting slings is as follows:
Synthetic Lifting Slings – LiftQuip Australia stock a wide range of Round and Flat Webbing Slings. Capacities are commonly stocked from 0.5 metre length increments in the lower capacities and 1 metre increments in larger capacities
Wire Rope Lifting Slings – LiftQuip Australia purchase our wire rope in 1000 metre reels and stock the required fittings to make wire rope slings. Wire rope slings are then all made to order and tested, with quick turnaround times guaranteed
Chain Lifting Slings – LiftQuip Australia purchase lifting chain and fittings in bulk and can manufacture and test to fulfill any specific requirements. We also carry a range of premade and tested chain assemblies of common sizes and configurations
Lifting is a team effort, and we always work closely with our customers. If there is a specific requirement that is required on a regular basis we will happily stock that item.
