Description

The information presented here is for use with Samson Rope Amsteel®-Blue Lifting Slings only.
This information does not apply for slings made with any other rope product.

  • Use only Samson approved splices for the fabrication of Amsteel®-Blue Lifting Slings
  • Proof load all slings to 2 X WLL
  • Strengths are for new slings only. Refer to Samson’s inspection and retirement criteria to evaluate used slings
  • All WLLs are based on a 5:1 design factor.
  • Developed to be consistent with ASME B30.9

 

In basket configurations, WLLs are based on a minimum D/d ratio of 25:1, where D is the smallest diameter in loaded contact with the slings and d is the diameter of the rope. If the actual D/d is less than 25:1, use Table 1 to determine the correct strength reduction.

GENERAL NOTE: Slings with horizontal angles less than 30°  are not recommended. Horizontal angles less than 5° should be considered vertical.
