The life span of an Extreema® round sling depends on the lifting situation. Every lifting situation is different, and it also depends on the protection being used. When a round sling is damaged after intensive use, normally it is possible to repair the sling.
According EN1492, and comparable standards, the technical requirements are “to minimize the hazards (e.g. listed in EN1492 §4) which can arise during the use of roundslings when carried out in accordance with the instructions and specifications given by the manufacturer or authorized representative.”
For example: in some applications Extreema® has a proven track record of over 37.500 lifts before the slings are rejected according to general work methods and guidelines in relation to wear and depreciation in general. After research, the slings deemed in an acceptable state and had a minimum remaining strength of 93%.
