WLL and Design Factor
Erickson’s synthetic slings are manufactured to ensure a design factor of 5:1. This design factor is a factor which is divided into the nominal strength of a sling to arrive at the WLL (or Rated Capacity). This factor is necessary to allow for wear, abrasion, damage and variations in loads which are not always readily apparent to the sling user.
BUT DOES NOT COVER FOR INSUFFICIENT EDGE PROTECTION OR PROTECTION AGAINST CUTTING.
