Pacific Gulf Round Slings hug and grip many unusual loads.
Pacific Gulf Round Slings aren't made like other types of slings. As a round sling, it features multiple loops of polyester fibers encased in a double-layer jacket that's very flexible and supple. Perfect for hugging many uneven and odd-shaped loads. It's soft design also grips many loads tightly -- especially when used as a choker -- to reduce slipping during the lift. By simply adjusting the flexible sling, you can lift a variety of loads of different sizes and shapes.

Low-stretch design makes rigging easier.
Pacific Gulf Round Slings feature a 100% polyester constuction that stretches approximately 3% at its rated capacity and still returns to its original length. That minimizes adjustments for stretch and reduces head room problems of your lift.

Light in weight, but high in strength.
Pacific Gulf Round Slings may have a soft, pliable appearance on the outside, but they contain high-strength polyester fibers on the inside. These fibers run throughout the sling's body for high load-bearing capacity. Choose from several rated capacities to match your lifting requirements (see chart above).

Two layers of protection.
A double-layer polyester jacket helps protect the Pacific Gulf Round Sling interior from two major enemies: abrasion and wear. It also serves as an effective barrier against ultraviolet degradation of the internal load-bearing fibers as well as harmful dirt and debris. Protection like this pays off in long-term performance for your sling.

Polyester offers loads of advantages.
The all-polyester construction virtually eliminates moisture absorption, rot and mildew for long service life. It also offers good resistance to common industrial acids (except concentrated sulfuric acid) and hot bleaching solutions. You can use Pacific Gulf Round Slings in the presence of many common chemicals such as alcohol, dry cleaning solvent, hydrocarbons, haolgenated hydrocarbons, ketones, crude oil, lubhricating oils, soaps, detergents, seawater and weak alkalis.

Be careful.

  • Do not expose Pacific Gulf Round Slings to strong alkalis at elevated temperatures, and never use at temperatures above 194° F (90° C) or below -40° F (-40° C).
  • Avoid sling contact with any kind of sharp surfaces.
  • Do not overload any sling beyond its rated capacity to prevent permanent stretch and weakening.
Warning: Failure to follow proper care, use and inspection criteria may result in personal injury. Do not exceed rated capacities.

Pacific Gulf Round Sling options.
Pacific Gulf Round slings are also available in three configurations:

  • Endless-type slings that double the lifting legs in every application.
  • Multi-leg bridles.
  • Eye and eye slings formed by enclosing the body of an endless sling in a tubular jacket for extra protection and durability.

Moveable wear pads made with durable polyester buffer or leather are also available to help protect against lifting hooks and corners of loads.

Inspect your slings regularly.
Before each lift, visually inspect your Pacific Gulf Round Sling for any damage. Remove sling from service if you see:

  • Missing or illegible identification tag.
  • Melting, charring or weld spatter on any part of the sling.
  • Holes, tears, cuts, embedded particles, abrasive wear or snags that expose the sling's core yarns.
  • Broken or worn stitching in the cover that exposes the core yarns.
  • Fittings that are damaged, stretched, cracked, pitted or distorted in any way.
  • Knotting in the sling.
  • Acid or alkali burns.
  • Other visible damage that causes doubt as to the sling's strength.
  • Loading a sling beyond its rated capacity.
