With that in mind, we’ve put together this handy guide on webbing slings vs round slings, looking at the pros and cons of each.
What Are Webbing Slings?
Webbing slings are flat belt straps, usually woven together from 100% polyester, and have eye loops at either end. They can be manufactured in a variety of lengths and widths. Webbing slings are also conveniently color coded so that you know the exact lifting strength of your piece of lifting equipment.
Pros of webbing slings:
- Lightweight and easy to handle
- More flexible than round slings
- Can be used in a variety of applications
- Less likely to damage delicate loads
- Available in a variety of lengths and widths

ZOHO Double Ply Webbing Sling
Double ply webbing slings by ZOHO as webbing slings manufacturer, are a type of lifting sling that is made from two layers of webbing material. This makes them stronger and more durable than single ply webbing slings, and they are also less likely to stretch or deform under load. Double ply webbing slings are often used for heavy-duty lifting applications, such as lifting machinery or moving large objects.
There are a number of different factors to consider when choosing a double ply webbing sling, including below:
- The width of the sling,
- The length of the sling,
- The working load limit (WLL),
The width of the sling will determine how much weight it can safely lift, and the length of the sling will determine how far it can reach. The WLL is the maximum weight that the sling can safely lift, and it is important to never exceed this limit.
ZOHO Shows Tips Of Using Webbing Sling Double Ply Model
When using a double ply webbing sling, it is important to inspect it carefully before each use. This will help to ensure that the sling is in good condition and that it is safe to use. If you notice any damage to the sling, such as cuts, tears, or fraying, you should not use it.
To use a double ply webbing sling, simply wrap it around the object that you want to lift and then secure it with a knot or other type of fastener. Be sure to use a knot that is appropriate for the type of sling and the weight of the object. Once the sling is secured, you can then use a crane or other lifting device to lift the object.
