Slings and Lifting Products: Experience Counts!

High Performance Fiber Slings, Nylon Web Slings

Since 1952, all four of the Coordinated Wire Rope companies have been specializing in the fabrication of Wire Rope Slings and Bridles in many different sizes and configurations. Coordinated's wire rope sling has been the tried and true lifting companion since we first started making them in Wilmington, CA in 1952. Safety, of course, is the prime concern with lifting slings and we have some of the most experienced and highly skilled riggers in the country. Many have been with us over 20 years, making Coordinated the first choice for rigging when challenging lifts must be completed safely.

At Coordinated Wire Rope, you have the choice of single leg slings, two leg, three or four leg bridles, hand splice slings, flat braid and round braided wire rope slings. Our equipment includes a 2500 ton press with a capacity to swage up to 3" diameter wire rope. We also swage up to 1-1/2" diameter wire rope in the field with our portable 600 ton and mobile 500 ton presses. The largest wire rope press on the West Coast, a 4000 ton, is part of Coordinated Wire Rope's impressive equipment inventory.

Heavy Duty Chain Slings

Coordinated Wire Rope assembles, tests, and certifies all chain slings before delivery. In addition, as required by OSHA and ANSI B30.9, we inspect, test and re-certify any chain sling we sell, at least on a yearly basis. Choose from the following Cam-Alloy Chain Slings:

  • Types: S and C
  • Double Type: D
  • Triple Type: T
  • Quadruple Type: Q

It is imperative to exercise intelligence, care and common sense while using chain slings. Please contact Coordinated Wire Rope for any questions regarding proper use, inspection criteria, or having slings tested and certified.

Lightweight, Flexible, and Cost Effective Lifting with Nylon and Polyester Web Slings

When looking for a lightweight, flexible, and cost effective lifting sling, nylon and polyester web slings are an excellent choice. Flat web slings are an alternative to heavy and bulky wire rope and chain slings and become a great money savings alternative.

When purchasing nylon or polyester web slings, the tagging must be easy to read, durable and include information mandated by ANSI B30.9 regulations. Inferior tags can be cause for early removal from service, increasing the amount of slings needed to complete the same project. Coordinated Wire Rope’s heavy-duty tags are scratch, dirt and oil resistant– and the most durable tags made today.

Another Alternative: Coordinated Polyester Round Slings

Polyester round slings are synthetic slings made by filling a polyester tube or tubes with continuous strands of polyester fiber to reach a given capacity. The higher the capacity of the sling, the more strands of polyester fiber inserted in the tube. Contact your Coordinate sales representative for questions about best applications for Polyester round slings.

High Performance Fiber Round Slings

The idea of making lifting slings from High performance fibers came out of the discovery of Kevlar®. The same fiber used in bulletproof vests was the first fiber to be used in making lifting slings that were 5 times stronger than steel and 1/10th the weight. Because the slings themselves add so little to the total weight of the lift, High Performance fiber slings allow cranes to make heavier lifts.

Coordinated's line of High Performance fiber slings are lightweight, flexible, easily stored, and repairable. Though the initial cost of these slings may be more than traditional wire rope slings, there are a number of factors that actually make them a much better value. Lighter slings require fewer riggers, less equipment, less room for storage and have the same stretch as a wire rope sling. Crane operators love these high performance slings because the load is much easier to control.

Recognized as Number 1: Harrington Lever Hoists

Coordinated is pleased to represent Harrington's LB lever hoists. They combine easy operation with a compact, low headroom design that easily handles real world demands. Rated the number 1 lever hoist in the U.S., Harrington LB lever hoists can be used horizontally, vertically, inverted or at any other load angle AND have the strength to get the job done.

Harrington's CF hand chain hoists are designed for portability and durability. These hoists are the economical and practical choice for efficient, trouble free service. The CF model is a long lasting construction grade hoist that offers the best value in a hand chain hoist.

Lifting Beams and Spreader Bars

Lifting beams and spreader bars are below the hook equipment that facilitate safe lifting by spreading the attachment points, allowing for better sling angles. Even though both are used for lifting, lifting beams and spreader bars are quite different in concept and design.

Lifting beams most often have a single lifting eye at the top with two or more attachment points at the bottom of the beam. This configuration requires the beam to be much stronger and heavier than a spreader. Adjustable lifting beams have multiple or adjusting lifting points, facilitating the ability to handle both wide and unbalanced loads. Generally, these beams are used in tight or low headroom situations.

Ideal where headroom is not limited, spreaders most often have two attachment points on top and two at the bottom, allowing the spreader to be lighter weight and still lift a substantial amount of weight (in comparison to a comparable beam). They add stability to the lift and are available with wire rope, chain and high performance fiber slings for top rigging. As the weight is applied to the bottom of the spreader, the top rigging counter balances the pull, allowing for the use of lighter weight devices.

Coordinated Wire Rope and Coordinated Equipment carry both type of lifting devices in multiple lengths and capacities in new, used and surplus condition. Many of these items are also available for short and long term rental.

Clearly, when choosing the proper slings and lifting products, experience counts. Contact us today–we promise our experts will help you make the best choice for your application.
