PRO-FE-1960 Flemish Eye Wire Rope Slings

When making a Flemish Eye (super loop) wire rope sling, it is recommended to use an IWRC wire rope, construction 6x36WS.

Flemish Eye wire rope slings are suitable to be used at temperatures between –60°C and 400°C. If using at temperatures above 250°C, working load limit (W.L.L.) should be decreased at 75% or more of initial rated value.

It has been proven that a 7 strands wire rope provides maximum lifting efficiency, using a wire rope with more strands does not provide additional advantage. The eye is formed by slicing the wire rope into two groups, one consisting of 3 strands and the other of 4 strands (core included). The furthest point to where the wire rope is spliced determines the length of the eye.

Even without swaging, the Flemish Eye wire rope slings transfer approximately 70% of the breaking force to the wire rope.
This is achieved only by the friction that takes place between the wire rope strands. Swaging the sleeve onto the wire further enhances this result.

Flemish eye splicing allow better work load limits than classic aluminium ferrules swaging, for the same wire rope.

Work load limits adjusted and calculated based on EN 13414-1 and adjusted.
