Web slings, round slings, ropes etc. can be protected from damage whilst lifting sharp edged loads with Armourtex protective sleeves.
Armourtex protective sleeves are made out of Polyurethane, a material unique in its extreme resistance to abrasion and cutting, thus offering optimal protection of a sling can be ensured. High levels of grip to a flat surfaces will also prevent load slippage.
Using an internal textile lining the inserted sling can glide easily through the sleeve, this especially useful when lifting a coli as you can turn the coil over 180º safely without any damage and without accident.
These sleeves have proved themselves under the hardest conditions. They prolong lashing and lifting system life by a high factor.
Armourtex Sleeves can be added to a webbing sling (normally a duplex type) or a round sling where a safe lift procedure is required. We supply a lot of our Armourtex sleeves for lifting steel coils, steel beams, concrete pipes and generally where the product being lifted is susceptible to damaging the sling and ultimately injuring the person doing the lift. With safety in mind it is worth your peace of mind purchasing and using our Armourtex sleeves and definitely not an alternative method such as old pieces of carpet etc.
Armourtex can be bonded onto webbing slings which will be used for its anti cutting properties or where abrasion damages a sling then a thin layer sprayed on is the answer.
Chains and Ropes will be protected from damage whilst lifting sharp edged loads with ARMOURTEX PU protective sleeves.
Armourtex is suitable for anti cutting and protection due to:
- High structural rigidity – textile sleeve, single or double-sided Polyurethane coating.
- High resistance to abrasion – Abrasion 60mg (DIN 53 516).
- Extremely cut resistant – Good protection against cuts is ensured from 5mm coating thickness. Polyurethane Elastomer approx. 80 Shore A
- Very good elasticity – 450% stretch capacity (DIN 53 504)
- Good chemical resistance
- No ageing (If stored correctly – Technical sheet available)
ARMOURTEX PU protective sleeves are manufactured out of Polyurethane Elastomer, a material unique in its extreme resistance to abrasion and cutting, thus offering optimal protection of the webbing material can be ensured. High levels of grip on flat surfaces also prevent load slippage.
A textile lining ensures that the inserted belt can glide easily through the sleeve. In this way, an overstressing of the material will be avoided. The sleeves can be fitted with strong sleeving inserted for more demanding tasks (such as coil transport).
These sleeves have proved themselves under the hardest conditions. They prolong chain and wire rope system life by a high factor.
Protective Pads (“DF”) can be used wherever there are sharp edges to be protected or where damage to lifting materials needs to be prevented. The protective plates are applied during the load fastening / lashing operation.
The lashing belt is threaded through the two openings, so that the plate can slide freely along the belt. During the lashing process the belt can thus slide over the plate, avoiding damage with no contact between the belt and sharp edges. The minimum thickness “d” recommended to afford good cut protection is 4mm.
Plates can be supplied in all sizes, with the standard sizes are listed opposite.
Edge Protector Corners (“KWS”)
Edge Protector Corners (“KWS”) offer protection from sharp edges for ropes and cables, and are available in two styles. They have round openings, through which the rope can be threaded. In this way the weight of pointed loads can be spread across an area, and both load and lashing material are protected.
Edge Protector Corners (“KW”)
Edge Protector Corners (“KW”) are used in the lifting of heavier sharp edged loads such as coils. Magnets (optional) make application simple. Edge protectors can be supplied for lifting belts between 65 and 100mm, or for ropes of up to 40mm diameter. The edge protectors can also (special order only) be supplied with a semi-circular opening for the load side of the belt corresponding to the diameter of the coils in coil loads. In this way an extremely even load weight spread can be achieved.
