Abrasion Control

We recommend abrasion control be applied to all web slings we sell. It ensures the safety of everyone near loads as well as significantly extending the working life of the sling. Over the lifetime of a sling, slings with abrasion control cost significantly less due to their increased durability relative to a small increase in price.
