U.S. Cargo Control, a manufacturer and distributor of the cargo control industry, will now carry DICA’s full line of LiftGuard Magnetic Sling Protectors.
The sling protection product line includes LiftGuard Magnetic Edge Protectors from DICA, CornerMax Cut-Resistant Sleeves, and three types of wear pads – sewn sleeves, quick sleeves, and tubular sleeves – that are all made from either nylon webbing or Cordura fabric. Each of these products are available in different sizes and lengths suitable for specific lifting needs.
Sling protection is an essential part of any lifting setup. These products protect slings from damage caused by contact with abrasive surfaces such as the edges, corners, and protrusions. Patented LiftGuard Sling protectors are designed to hold the sling away from the load edge and any significant contact points during lifting operations. “Sling protection is critical in preventing sling failure and is a requirement in current sling safety regulations,” said Kerry Koberg, Strategic Accounts Manager, DICA.
Different protection products have different strengths and uses, and when used together, they help increase the longevity of slings and prevent the number one cause of rigging accidents.
These products add to the extensive Rigging Supplies product category that includes items such as lifting slings, lifting chain, load monitoring cells, and other rigging hardware.
