Compact Slings are excellent anchor slings and safety lanyards for rescue and rope access. Strong, durable, and easy to use, they are rated for a four-person load with a 100 kN MBS (end to end configuration). The High Tenacity Polyester (HTP) fiber core makes the Compact Sling highly durable and robust. An elastic polyester sleeve surrounds the internal load bearing elements for added protection, compact sizing, and easy handling.
The breaking force of this equipment exceeds all requirements of the listed standards, yet it remains supple, lightweight, and low volume. Compact Slings are firm and flexible, maintaining their shape when wrapping around overhead structures or getting into hard to reach places. Their exceptionally high strength opens options for using choker configuration (girth hitch). There is no heavy hardware to carry and maintain, and each sling packs down nicely for transport.
Tying Knots: Texora recently confirmed the following information regarding tying knots in slings.
Edge Protection: It is essential to follow best practices for inspecting equipment, placing slings around low diameter structures, and using edge protection. The polyester sheath is not a replacement for edge protection. It encapsulates the strength-bearing core and is designed for limited protection against the elements. If proper edge protection is neglected, the sheath can be damaged to the point of needing retirement. Always evaluate the anchor and environment, utilizing appropriate edge protection for the application. Take care of the Compact Sling and the Compact Sling will take care of you.
