Status : Confirmed, Current   Published : August 2003



BS EN 13414-1:2003 specifies the construction requirements, calculation of WLL, verification, certification and marking of steel wire rope slings for general lifting service. It covers single-, two-, three- and four-leg slings, with ferrule-secured or spliced eye terminations and spliced or ferrule-secured endless slings made from 8 mm to 60 mm diameter 6 strand ordinary lay steel wire rope with fibre or steel core and 8 strand ordinary lay steel wire rope with a steel core conforming to EN 12385-4.

This standard assumes a working coefficient (factor of safety) of five.

This standard is not applicable to slings which are manufactured before the date of publication of this standard.
