February 25, 2021 (Guthrie Center, Iowa) DICA is pleased to become a member of the Associated Wire Rope Fabricators (AWRF).
AWRF is a leading organization for sling fabricators and special rigging components manufacturers. The association works to promote safety standards for manufacturing, fabrication, and the distribution of lifting, rigging, and load securement devices.
“AWRF has an outstanding history of promoting the common interests of all stakeholders in the rigging industry. The association’s commitment to improving product identification procedures, technical expertise, and rigging safety has resulted in safer working conditions and saved lives. We are very proud to be a part of this exceptional organization,” said Kris Koberg, CEO of DICA. “With the addition of LiftGuard Magnetic Sling Protectors (formerly Linton Rigging Gear Supplies), helping contribute to safe rigging practices is an essential part of our mission to make your setup safe.”
Edge protection is critical in preventing sling failure and is a requirement in current sling safety standards (OSHA 29 CFR 1910.184(c)(9) and ASME B30.9). LiftGuard Sling Protectors prevent damage to slings caused by contact with abrasive edges, corners, or protrusions during lifting operations.
For ease of use and additional safety, LiftGuard Edge Protectors attach magnetically to metallic surfaces and can be used with synthetic, wire rope or chain slings. LiftGuard Sling Protectors reduce liability issues by eliminating the need to use make-shift load or sling protection.
