Synthetic Armor ™ Pads
DO NOT USE FOR CUT PROTECTION! FOR ABRASION PROTECTION ONLY!
Synthetic Armor ™ Pads protect slings from abrasion damage that can be caused by contact with rough surfaces such as concrete beams and structures. They are also used to protect finished or painted loads from marring. These pads can be made to fit any length or width sling. They can also be made in long lengths that the customer can cut into suitable sizes on the job. Double or triple thickness provides resistance for more severe conditions. A variety of materials is used to protect slings and loads depending on the degree of abrasion expected in the application
Shackle Pin Pads
The pin area of a shackle can damage synthetic slings. Placing synthetic slings on the pin should be avoided. Shackles have a sharp edge where the pin goes through the shackle ears. If the sling is rigged in this area, it can become severely damaged. If you must rig on the pin, protect your sling with a Shackle Pin Pad. The Shackle Pin Pad is sized for the model of the shackle and protects the sling along the entire pin.
