Polyester Strop (Round Sling, Span Set)
An aerial staple
Black circular polyester fibre slings used for rigging, also known as strops, round slings and span sets.
These strops can be attached directly to shackles, carabiners, quick links or any other non-abrasive anchor point. Being circular, they are very quick and easy to attach. Please note the length stated is the maximum usable length, not the circumference. In other words, if you connect two carabiners to the strop, the length we list is the maximum distance between them (so the maximum usable distance).
Attaching a strop directly to a Firetoys aerial hoop by choking will use up roughly 15cm (6") of the working length of the strop. These strops are ideal for slinging around a beam and attaching together as a rigging point, but as they are very strong and safety rated, they are also extensively used as an alternative to slings and polysafe ropes.
Take care, in the air
As they are made from textile fibres, care must be taken not to allow the strop to rub against any very abrasive surface. These strops have an outer covering independent of the internal structure, which provides the strength. The cover can sustain minor damage without affecting the strop’s strength, but the strop should be replaced immediately if the outer cover is worn through.
Working Load Limit (WLL) is rated at 2000kg on a safety factor of 7:1
