MATERIALS HANDLING: New Webbing Slings From Anchor
Recent Western Cape Business News
ANCHOR Industries recently introduced Vertex webbing slings and tie downs to the market, as part of its range of lifting and rigging products. With offices in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban, it is major supplier of lifting and rigging as well as marine and offshore mooring equipment and services in Southern Africa.
“Through the use of new and innovative products we are improving our service offering to clients, while adhering to the highest industry standards of safety. This raises the bar in the industry. With this in mind, all Vertex webbing slings are supplied with the correct markings, certification and safety and maintenance instructions,” says Dale Hutcheson, Anchor Industries managing director.
Made from high tenacity multifilament polyester textile, the slings are used in general day-to-day lifting applications. Colour coded according to the work load limit, the duplex flat and endless round slings are stocked in various lengths with the capacity ranging from 1T to 8T. With a 7:1 factor of safety, the slings were tested and adhere to the SANS1492-1&2 specifications. Subsequent testing is being coordinated at the CSIR.
The benefits of using webbing slings are that they are softer than steel wire rope and chain slings, thereby protecting the load from damage such as cuts, scratches and friction caused by other lifting slings.
A registered Lifting Machinery Entity and member of the Lifting Equipment Engineering Association of South Africa (LEEASA), Anchor Industries stocks lifting, pulling, lashing and rigging equipment. With manual and electric hoists, beam clamps and trolleys, it offers a complete range of below-the-hook equipment. Additionally, with a service offering that includes testing and recertification, component manufacturing, safety training and the compilation of safety registers and colour coded inspection boards, it offers a complete solution to clients.
