According to the EN-1492 regulations for safe use of round slings the sling should always be protected on the anchoring point (shackles,pins,axis,trunions,etc.) as well as the lifting appliance (cranehook). Extreema® protection comes in 100% Dyneema® or 100% Cordura®. We also offer polyester wear pads, suitable for rather smooth and clean surfaces. The main application for our EP-series is the protection of lifting equipment and the object that will be lifted for a safer lifting operation. It can be mounted on synthetic round slings, webbing slings, steel wire rope & chains, lashings and synthetic ropes. With Extreema® protection round slings and webbing slings have a significant longer life span and they will make your working conditions a lot safer.
According to EN 1492-2:2000+A1:2008
Paragraph D.3.7 Round slings should be protected from edges, friction and abrasion, whether from the load or the lifting appliance. Where reinforcements and protection against damage from edges and/or abrasion is supplied as part of the sling, this should be correctly positioned. It may be necessary to supplement this with additional protection.
The lifetime of a round sling will be significantly longer and much safer with Extreema® EP-L series protections on the bearing points and angles, sharp edges. You will also comply with the EN Standard 1492-2 for round slings!
