AWRF Talks Equalizer blocks for synthetic TwinPath round slings with Sling Max
At the past AWRF Product and Information Exhibition (PIE) we spoke with Tom Desoo of Sling Max Rigging Solutions ( www.slingmax.com ) about their new equalizer block for synthetic TwinPath round slings. This new patent pending product is the first ever equalizer block designed specifically for synthetic round slings. It is designed with multiple stacked bearings to lighten the load for the rigger and ensure smooth handling.
The equalizer block offers a unique bail that will accommodate shackle orientation either way (pin side up or down). The sheave on the block is made of a durable high performance synthetic material and is specially designed to accept the width of the TwinPath sling. The sheave is slanted on both sides and flat in the middle to prevent the sling from getting caught in the side of the block.
Sling Max is demonstrating their 50 Ton model in this video and is currently offering this model and a 75 Ton model. They are working on 25 Ton and 125 Ton models.
Nice job Tom, thanks for being part of our new product and technology video series.
