There are Wire Rope Slings offered by us that are stronger the cross sectional area of a wire is usually greater than that of the links in a chain. Therefore, more pressure is exerted on a chain than on a wire if each are holding the same weight. The rope is often used in slings because of its strength, durability, abrasion resistance and ability to conform to the shape of the loads on which it is used. The slings have been used extensively for years and were once the industrial lifting sling of choice. The Wire Rope Slings are very efficient.
