BEXCO’s FLEXOR Sling for heavy lift operations has been precision-designed for lightweight and exible usage whilst retaining the known strength and durability of BEXCO’s proven synthetic Round Slings.
Using DSM’s Ultra High Molecular Weight PolyEthylene (UHMWPE) known as Dyneema® at its core, BEXCO’s FLEXOR™ Sling has a much better fatigue life compared to wire, whilst retaining similar elastic elongation properties. It also weighs eight to ten times less than traditional wire rope making it much easier and more flexible to handle.
With the Round Sling being effectively break-tested in the R&D phase rather than proof-loaded, BEXCO’s FLEXOR™ Sling has a number of proven, unique advantages over traditional round slings:
- A bespoke double-fold jacket for each eye which is constructed and given a high quality finish using High Modulus PolyEthylene (HMPE) fiber. This jacket offers maximum protection against cuts, punctures, snags and abrasion as well as UV exposure
- Eyes which have been ruggedly designed to retain their shape during precision lifts and which resist any natural flattening whilst operating in harsh offshore conditions, allowing the use of smaller hardware
- With customers requiring very narrow length tolerance between Round Sling pairs, BEXCO’s precision manufacturing methods ensure production of identical batches of FLEXOR Slings
