BS EN 1492-1:2000+A1:2008 Textile slings. Safety. Flat woven webbing slings made of man-made fibres for general purpose use

BS EN 1492-1 specifies the requirements related to safety, including methods of rating and testing single-, two-, three-, four-leg and endless sewn flat woven webbing slings, with or without fittings, made of polyamide, polyester and polypropylene man-made fibre webbing in the width range of 25 mm to 450 mm inclusive.

The flat woven webbing slings covered by BS EN 1492-1 are intended for general purpose lifting operations, i.e. when used for lifting objects, materials or goods which require no deviations from the requirements, safety factors or working load limits specified. Lifting operations not covered by this standard would include the lifting of persons, potentially dangerous materials such as molten metal and acids, glass sheets, fissile materials, nuclear reactors and where special conditions apply.

Flat woven webbing slings conforming to this European Standard are suitable for use and storage in the following temperature ranges:

  • Polyester and polyamide -40°C to 100°C
  • Polypropylene -40°C to 80°C

This European Standard does not apply to the types of webbing sling indicated below:

  • Slings such as bag slings, nets (consisting of several crossed webbings stitched together), ‘adjustable’
  • Slings (containing, for example, intermediate buckles stitched along the webbing), etc
  • Slings made from webbing woven from monofilament yarns
  • Slings designed for pre-slinging and intended not to be re-used

BS EN 1492-1 deals with the technical requirements to minimize the hazards listed in clause 4 which can arise during the use of flat woven webbing slings when carried out in accordance with the instructions and specifications given by the manufacturer or authorized representative.
