Buy Lifting strap Trailer
Hoisting belts are super handy and actually indispensable when you want to transport cargo safely. A hoisting belt is often used to lift and move heavy bales, pallets or other heavy objects. We have a wide range of different lifting belts. Each hoisting belt is marked with the maximum weight it can lift. You can often recognise this by the colour of the sling. For example, a purple sling can lift up to 1000 kg, a green sling up to 2000 kg and a yellow sling up to 3000 kg, etc. Do you have questions about our range of lifting straps?

What should you pay attention to when buying a lifting sling?
To determine which lifting sling is suitable for your application, it is important to find out how much lifting load/weight you need. We recommend that you take this rather liberally. Of course, you don't want to have too little, which could cause accidents. Here are the main points to consider when buying a lifting sling:
- lifting load - keep the weight of the load generous when choosing a lifting strap
- Working load - always choose the lifting sling or Frame straps whose safe lifting capacity exceeds the load to be lifted
- angle - pay close attention to the method of lifting (number of slings and angle). Try to maintain at least a 90° angle. Never exceed 120°! The higher the angle, the stronger the sling should be
To choose the right lifting sling, the load factor is used. This multiplies the working load of one lifting strap to determine the total working load of the lifting strap. For hoisting belts with 4 belts, 1 or 2 belts are often used only for balance. To make the calculation, you should therefore take the largest angle between two opposite slings. All our lifting slings have the EN 1492-2 certificate. This means that the lifting slings meet the safety requirements, including methods for determining the working load and testing, of round lifting slings with 2, 3 or 4 sections, with or without connecting devices, made of polyamide, polyester and polypropylene.
Inspect your lifting strap regularly
If you often use a lifting strap, it is wise to check it thoroughly from time to time. If you don't, you increase the risk of accidents. Check, for example, whether the inspection sticker, label or colour code is still on it. Check whether the label is still clearly legible and whether the maximum load can still be read. You should also check for any cuts in the webbing and at the stitching, or at the loop. Your lifting strap can also be affected by grease, cement, sand or chemicals. In addition, there should also be no burn-in visible from welding or cutting.
