Made 'Light Duty' With

Slingmax Twin-Path Slings

Twin-Path® slings from Sling- max® Rigging Products, Aston, Pa., were utilized to raise a 240-ton tug after it sank in the Port of Green

Bay, Wis.

The marine construction and sal- vage company that was called to raise the tug consulted with Wiscon- sin Lifting Specialists Inc., a Sling- max dealer in Milwaukee, Wis., who

September, 1990 recommended using Kevlar® Twin-

Path slings over traditional wire rope slings.

Twin-Path slings are essentially two complete slings in one, each making a separate connection be- tween hook and load. They are lightweight, easy for divers to use and constructed of 100 percent polyester, ensuring a strong and se- cure lift.

Wisconsin Lifting supplied nine

Twin-Path slings. Each sling was used in a basket hitch and has a working load capacity of 120,000 pounds. "It took three full days to com- plete the entire job and we were all very satisfied with the performance of the Twin-Path slings," reported

Ted Proite, sales manager at Wis- consin Lifting.

Slingmax dealers offer a complete line of innovative rigging products, in addition to Twin-Path products, for use in rigging, construction, mill- wrighting, overhead lifting and crane applications. Slingmax has over 30 locations in North America, with representation in Europe and the Middle East.
