Roughneck Mesh Slings

Roughneck CHAIN MESH SLINGS
Specialty Slings for rugged applications.
Widely used in metalworking shops, and stevedoring when abrasive conditions or hot environments damage and destroy synthetic slings.

Features, Advantages and Benefits
Promotes Safety
  • Each sling permanently stamped with capacity and serial number for traceability.
  • Steel construction resists abrasion and cutting.
  • Each sling proof tested and certified
 
Saves Time
  • Width of mesh helps to balance and control loads Rated Capacity (lbs.)*
  • End fittings fit most large crane hooks
 
Saves Money
  • Alloy steel end fittings and Grade 80 Alloy chain resists abrasion and cutting for greater sling life
  • Repairable - thus cost effective
  • Low stretch and good flexibility reduces load damage
  • Wide bearing area distributes load to help avoid load damage

WARNING
Do not exceed rated capacities. Sling capacity decreases as the angle from horizontal decreases. Slings should not be used at angles of less than 30°. Refer to Effect of Angle chart page 10.

 

How to Order

 

Specify:
1. Chain size - ( 7/32", 9/32", 3/8" or 1/2" )
2. Type 1 (Triangle & Choker) or Type 2 (Triangle & Triangle)
3. Number of parts of chain
4. Length - Feet (Bearing point to bearing point)

Inspection Criteria
for Roughneck Chain Mesh Slings

Remove sling from service if any of the following are visible:

  • Wear, nicks, cracks, breaks, gouges, stretch,
    bends or weld spatter on chain or attachments
  • Discoloration from excessive temperature
  • Chain links and attachments won’t hinge freely with adjacent links
  • Visible distortion of either end fitting out of its plane
  • Distortion or any collapse of eye width on either end fitting
  • 15% reduction of original cross-sectional area of metal at any point of either end fitting
  • Cracked end fitting

 

Environmental Considerations

  • Rated capacities of chain mesh are reduced at temperatures above 400°F. (See table page 82)
  • Store in clean, dry area to avoid corrosive action

WARNING: These products may contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and/or birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Roughneck Mesh Slings

Roughneck WIRE MESH SLINGS
Specialty Slings with Particular Properties and Uses
Widely used in metalworking shops and steel warehouses where loads are abrasive, hot or tend to cut web slings.
Features, Advantages and Benefits
Promotes Safety
  • Steel construction resists abrasion and cutting
  • Each sling permanently stamped with capacity and serial number
  • Good flexibility - grips load’s contours
  • Each sling proof tested and certified
 
Saves Time
  • Width of mesh helps control and balance load
  • End fittings fit most large crane hooks
 
Saves Money
  • Grips load firmly without stretching - reduces load damage
  • Resists abrasion and cutting for greater sling life
  • Low stretch and flexibility reduce load damage
  • Wide bearing area distributes load to help avoid load damage
  • Repairable - thus very cost effective
  • Alloy steel end fittings - plated for long life
  • Wire mesh is zinc plated - resists corrosion

WARNING
These products may contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and/or birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Roughneck Wire Mesh Sling Construction
Standard Construction: Alloy steel end fittings, zinc plated. Mesh is galvanized high tensile steel. 10 gage is standard, 12 gage is available upon request .
Optional Construction: Stainless steel mesh is available for corrosive and hotter environments.

Inspection Criteria for Roughneck Wire Mesh Slings
Remove the sling from service if any of the following is visible:

  • A broken weld or brazed joint along the sling edge
  • A broken wire in any part of the mesh
  • Reduction in wire diameter of 25% due to abrasion or 15% due to corrosion
  • Lack of flexibility due to distortion of the mesh
  • Visible distortion or wear of either end fitting
  • Cracked end fitting

Environmental Considerations
  • Wire mesh slings shall not be used at temperatures above 550°F.
  • Store in a clean, dry area to avoid corrosive action

How To Order
Specify:
1. Mesh Gage (10 or 12)
2. Mesh Width - Inches
3. Length - Feet (Bearing point to bearing point)
4. Sling Type (1 or 2)

 

 

NOTE: The choker fitting must not be positioned against a load edge or directly on the triangle fitting.


WARNING
Do not exceed rated capacities. Sling capacity decreases as the angle from horizontal
decreases. Slings should not be used at angles of less than 30°.
