Sling Protection - Wear Pads & Sleeves


Wear pads give a sling extra protection where it wears the most. They can be furnished in numerous materials, including leather, buffer web, polyester, felt, PVC, among others. Whether you are trying to protect your sling against wear and cutting or oil and dirt, Liftex® will offer you protection that best fits your needs.

Sliding Sleeves

Sliding sleeves are ideal for handling material with sharp edges because the sleeve doesn’t move when the sling stretches. Sleeves cover both sides of the sling and can be moved on the sling to where it is needed. Sleeves are available in many materials and
in any length.

Flat & Round Quick Sleeves
These heavy polyester or nylon sling covers have Velcro closures for quick and easy protection of slings and/or load from damage.

Material Choices: Buffer Web / Nylon / Polyester / Leather / Super Pad
