Most synthetic sling accidents are caused by cutting. There are many kinds of protective sleeves and pads available, but only two synthetic protectors provide adequate cut protection: CornerMax® Pads and CornerMax® Sleeves have been engineered and tested to provide 4464 kg of protection per centimetre of sling width. CornerMax® pads are designed for 90° straight edges, whereas CornerMax® sleeves are for other edges.
CornerMax® sleeves may look like traditional protection sleeves, but are made of a high tech fibre that is specially woven to provide cut protection for a variety of edges and surfaces.
For synthetic slings, the most critical decision is whether cut protection is needed. In some circumstances no cut protection, or simplified softeners only, are required. At Bunzl Safety we have a full line of engineered softeners that are excellent for abrasion protection or for protecting a load surface.
