Wire Mesh Slings That Hold On. And On. And On.

The industry’s strongest, safest and most versatile Wire Mesh Sling. Gripper® Slings offer the longest service life and are most resistant to rough treatment. Excellent for abrasive and sharp edge loads.

Unirope is a factory certified Gripper® Sling fabricator and we perform repairs and re-certifications as well.

Unirope’s GRIPPER® metal mesh slings offer certain specialized advantages over other types of slings, especially if the load is being handled is abrasive or sharp-edged, unstable, hot or corrosive.

But perhaps a GRIPPER® Sling’s most important quality is its durability. The wire mesh offers excellent resistance to abrasive loads and as a result offers unsurpassed longevity.

The choker and triangle fittings are joined to the metal mesh with stainless steel connector spirals. Using stainless steel connector spirals reduces the likelihood of failure at this point and assures complete flexibility between the fittings and the wire mesh.
