"The Steel Sling with the Fabric Feel"

Designed for suspension applications where metal or synthetic slings are required.

With the trend in stage rigging to require metal slings for all overhead suspension, the problem has been how to accomplish this in the most effecient and cost effective way. Gacflex round slings are the answer to this problem.

This load bearing member of a Gacflex round sling is made from steel galvanised aircraft cable would in an endless configuration. The wire is encased in a black double wall polyester jacket.

A unique inspection window allows for easy inspection in the core for broken wires and corrosion. The result is a highly flexible easy to use sling.
