The Extreema® round sling
Unlike braided fiber ropes, the construction of an Extreema® round sling is based on parallel laid fiber technology that make up the core. The core of an Extreema® round sling is always made of 100% high performance fibers such as Dyneema® , the world’s strongest fiber™, or general HMPE. This makes the slings up to 7-8 times stronger than steel on a weight for weight basis and a weight reduction up to 80% compared to wire rope.
Parallel laid fiber technology Extreema® round slings have proven to be significantly stronger (between 30-50% higher MBL’s!) when break loaded on Ramshorn DIN shaped hooks, compared to braided fiber ropes.
The growing awareness in the heavy lift industry shows an increasing demand for Extreema® light weight slings that are flexible, safe and easy to work with. Extreema® light weight soft slings reduce environmental pollution and the choice for the right Extreema® construction (core, cover and protections) will significantly drop the total cost of ownership and have proven to be a cost saving investment for challenging heavy lift projects on- and offshore in many industries.
Extreema® round slings with bio-based Dyneema® core yarn can be supplied with a EU-origin certificate of the core material, and DNV Approval of manufacture certificate by Avient Protective Materials Dyneema®. Extreema® round slings with general HMPE core yarn material can only be accompanied with a Certificate of Conformity acc. to the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.
