Hand-Spliced

Engineering wire rope slings for your application is a highly specialized field – with exacting standards – that we gladly live by.  A Union sling can meet or exceed the most exacting specifications.  We apply thorough design and production controls – including an extensive ISO-controlled process.  And our traceability process tracks  every component through completion of the assembly and into the field.

A hand-spliced wire rope sling is constructed when the end of a single wire rope is bent back along the rope to form the eye.  These strands are then hand tucked into the body of the rope in what is called a tapered and concealed splice. This splice makes a sling that is easily pulled through narrow spaces and there are no rough ends to snag hands. Slings with rope bodies larger than 1 ½” diameter are made only with Burnt End splices in which ends of the strands are left exposed and cut off with a torch. These may also be cut shorter and served for smoothness.  Both types of hand splices have the same rated capacity.
