Correct use of CMTS

When selecting and specifying a CMTS sling, consideration must be given to the WLL required, taking into consideration the way of use and the nature of the load to be lifted. The size, shape and weight, together with the intended methods of use, work environment and nature of the load influence the correct choice.

CMTS slings must not be overloaded: the correct modal factor must be used.

Good slinging practices must be followed: lifting and lowering operations must be planned before the start of the load, they must be correctly positioned and securely connected to the load.

The correct method of securing a load with the double choke configuration provides added safety and helps prevent the load from slipping through the sling.

Presence of the label - Marking

The sling marking contains the following:

  • Maximum working load, in vertical lifting;
  • The material of the tape, i.e. polyester;
  • The CMTS description;
