Tri-Flex® Wire Rope Slings provide the best combination of strength and flexibility. Because of the Tri-Flex® sling construction, there is a large savings in material and machine costs in the larger sizes. This, combined with ease of use, makes Tri-Flex® Wire Rope Slings the slings for smart buyers.
