At Cablecraft one of our prized products are our handmade in Canada, custom-designed glass slings. Our glass slings are made of 4″ nylon/polyester lifting sling webbing and are certified to be rated at a 12,000 lbs Safe working load limit.

Example of Glass slings on a spreader bar

Glass slings are sold in pairs, one for each side of the glass sheets. The top wear pad is then hooked up to a spreader beam to be lifted to the desired location. Glass slings are one of the most widely used methods to move raw glass because of their secure and stable hold, lightweight, maneuverability, and ease of use.

This cargo sleeving is specially designed for use in the construction industry and protects against the repeated friction that comes with daily use.
