Polyester lifting straps - usage

Polyester lifting straps manufactured to EN 1492-1: 2001 and A1: 2009 - Textile hangers - Safety: Knitted flat hangers made of man - made fibers for general use.

All users read these instructions carefully. They will make it easier for you to work with lifting tools - meaning a component or equipment that is not attached to lifting machines and allows the load to hang, is placed between the machine and the load or on the load itself, or is an integral part of the load and placed on the market independently. You will be introduced to all the possibilities of using polyester lifting straps. The instructions contain important warnings for working with lifting accessories, the possibilities of use, repair and maintenance. By following the instructions and using them correctly, you will avoid work errors, repair costs and production downtime, while ensuring the reliability and longer service life of lifting accessories. The instructions must be accessible to all users at all times. Every worker who operates lifting tools must be familiar with the instructions and follow them. Observe the applicable occupational safety regulations. Before first use, you should review:

  • whether the supplied tape meets the requirements of your order,
  • whether the tape is accompanied by instructions for use, the EC declaration of conformity and the manufacturer's quality certificate,
  • whether the identification of the strap corresponds to the manufacturer's quality certificate.

Before using lifting straps, make sure you use them:

  • The weight of the load must not exceed the load capacity of the lifting strap.
  • Plan the fastening of the load with lifting straps before lifting or lowering the load.
  • The load capacity of the lifting straps corresponds to the attached table. If, despite following the instructions, you are unsure of the safety of lifting, use a stronger lifting strap with a hook or consult the manufacturer.
  • When using several lifting belts at the same time, the maximum working capacity is determined by the coefficient of the weakest belt or clamping methods.
  • When lifting an asymmetrical load with an asymmetrical center of gravity, use several identical strips together, up to an angle ß = 45 °. They can only carry two straps, and the other two can be used to balance the load.
  • If you use several lifting straps for lifting, they must be the same and fastened at an angle of up to ß = 60 °. The straps used must be fastened symmetrically.
  • The weight of the load can exceed the load capacity of the belt by up to 5% when the load is wrapped in several lifting straps on longer load routes. In this case, you must ensure a proportional load on the lifting straps along their entire length.
  • When using multiple straps, all straps must be of equal load capacity and length.
  • The safety factor of lifting straps is 7 times the load capacity stated on the label.
  • Place the straps on the load to prevent them from slipping during lifting.
  • If you use several lifting straps at the same time and their clamping angle exceeds ß = 60 °, use a load rod.
  • Avoid vibrations or sudden movements of the load.
  • Ensure the safety of personnel during lifting by determining their positions in the operating area or emptying the work area.
  • Lifting straps must be straight (they must not have knots and twisted parts).
  • For loads with sharp edges or rough surfaces, lifting straps may only be used if the sharp edges are secured with linings and edge guards.
  • If you are pulling a load on the ground, the lifting strap must not be under the load.
  • Lifting straps must not slide on the floor or on rough surfaces.
  • Lifting straps must be secured so that the weight of the load is distributed over the entire width of the strap.
  • Do not place the load on the lifting strap.
  • Never strike the strap to place it in the correct lifting position.
  • When lifting the lifting straps, do not tie them together, but use fasteners suitable for connecting the straps.
  • When using the tape, make sure that the identification label is not damaged.
  • The quilted part of the tape (the joined part of two, three or five layers) must always be stretched and must not be mounted on a hook or other lifting device.
  • For soft-loop straps, the length of the loop must be at least 3.5 times the width of the hook. The angle between the strips of the loop should not exceed 20 °.
  • The soft loop of the strap may only be attached to a sufficiently large hook, where the width of the loop must not exceed 75% of the width of the hook.
  • The lifting strap rings must be freely movable on the lifting hook.
  • Do not reach into a dangerous lifting area with your hands or other limbs.
  • Perform a test lift by slowly tightening the lifting straps and observing the load, which must not move uncontrollably. If you do not achieve such results, correct the clamping method, or replace the clamping points.
  • When lifting, the center of gravity of the load must be taken into account to prevent sudden twists and slips of the load.
  • In the event of lifting the load by tightening, the load must be pre-wrapped to prevent the strap from slipping.
  • Observe the minimum distance from the lifted object until the lifting straps are released
  • Do not clamp the load in places where there is a possibility of damage with sharp objects that can penetrate the lifting strap in the longitudinal or transverse direction.
  • After lifting, the lifting straps must be returned to a suitable warehouse.
  • Do not store damaged tapes together with usable tapes.
  • Dry wet strips outside before storage.
