Eye-and-Eye Slings High Performance slings – up to mbl 728 ton

Slings made from High Modulus Polyethylene (HMPE) have set new standards for lifting gear.
The Acera™ slings are made from Acera™ Amundsen 12 strand ropes.

Acera™ Amundsen are high performance ropes made from genuine Acera™ HMPE yarns, which are individually coated through a rotating 360° Kiss-roller process.
Single yarn coating is proven to significantly enhance internal and external abrasion resistance, and extend service life and strength. The sling eyes have Protech™ cover. A proprietary braided protection made from Acera™ yarn.  The splices are protected by a weaved polyester Y-cover.
All Acera™ slings are produced in accordance with own technical file based on ISO 18264:2016 standard. The eyes are hand-spliced with our own positive locking tuck variant, ensuring anti-slip under all circumstances. Acera™ slings are the alternative to cumbersome steel wires. They are stronger and safer. The corresponding weight is more than 7 times lower. Compared to conventional fiber ropes, the resulting reduction in diameter leads to significant savings in weight (60%), space and handling. Acera™ slings provide a safer and more productive lifting operation. The light weight, ultra strong Acera™ slings are available at a market competitive price and can be customised to suit numerous applications.

Nominal diameter as per definition in ISO 1968. Minimum strength defined as MBF/ MBL (Minimum Breaking Force, minimum breakload) of spliced application, and measured in kilogram force/kp, tested according to ISO 2307 and verified by DNV GL. Work Load Limits ( WLL ) is measured in metric tons and kilonewtons based on a safety factor 7:1, as defined by the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.
