Rope Characteristic:

Gator Laid® Slings are used where a short sling length is required. Essentially, they are 3 Tri-Flex® slings combined into the Gator-Laid® configuration. There are 3 flemish eye splices per eye. The eyes are tightly wrapped and secured with a special synthetic webbing and resin compound.

The shortest sling length we can produce is 2x the eye length plus 18x the body diameter (you need “some” body length between the eyes).

1? Rated Capacities are based on a D/d ratio of >5:1 for the body of the sling and 1:1 for the sling eye.
2? Rated Capacity are based on a D/d ratio of >5:1 for the body of the sling, D/d 1:1 for the sling eye, and
choking angle greater than 135°.
ALL sling angles refer to the HORIZONTAL angle.

 

Important:
The minimum bending radius (D/d ratio) for the sling body is 5:1 where “D” is the pin or load and “d” is the sling body.
The minimum bending radius (D/d ratio) for the sling eye is 1:1 where “D” is the pin or load and “d” is the sling body.
The ratings shown for Gator-Laid® slings include an allowance for splicing efficiency and the above mentioned D/d ratios
and are based on a Design Factor of 5:1.
