TRIPLE A PLUS™

THE ULTIMATE PROTECTION SLEEVE FOR TEXTILE SLINGS

PROVIDING ENHANCED RESISTANCE TO ALL FORMS
OF CUT & ABRASION

Synthetic sling failure caused by cut or abrasion can result in high value products being damaged, shipments incurring costly delays and in extreme cases personal injury and death.

The Triple A Plus™ sling protection sleeve made with Dyneema® fibre and manufactured by the Worlds leading producer of multi-ply textile products, Marathon, is making lifting slings safer and helping organisations to avoid such risks.

PERFORMANCE THAT NO OTHER PROTECTION SLEEVE IS CAPABLE OF ACHIEVING

ADVANCED SLING PROTECTION

The demand for high tenacity textile slings continues to grow, but in almost all lifting applications they cannot accommodate the negative effects of chafing, scuffing, rubbing, cutting, and scraping. This can cause catastrophic and costly sling failures.

The solution is Triple A Plus™ by Marathon Belting. It provides advanced sling protection for all lifting, towing, or mooring applications where enhanced resistance to all forms of cut and abrasion is required and where safety is a necessity.

Benefits include:-
  • Excellent resistance to sharp edges

  • Outstanding abrasion resistance under extreme pressure

  • Exceptional flexibility as expected from a textile product

  • Very significant improvement in the safety of lifting apparatus

THE No1 SOLUTION WHEN HEALTH AND SAFETY CANNOT BE COMPROMISED

APPLICATIONS

Operators worldwide prefer light-weight and easy to manage textile slings, above heavy and load damaging steel slings.

Today’s high tenacity fibres enlarge the scope of lifting capacities for textile slings considerably.

Textile slings, up to the highest lifting capacities, and provided with proper protection against cut and abrasion, are user friendly lifting tools for a wide range of applications in the global industrial environment:

  • Ports

  • Offshore

  • Utilities

  • Steel Industry

  • Automotive

  • Heavy Lifting

BENCHMARKING

  • Testing Rig

    Testing Rig

    In order to compare and benchmark our products with those of our competitors a testing programme has been established. Four physical tests are conducted: knife abrasion, saw test, metal abrasion and static cut test. Additional information has also been taken into consideration, such as product analysis (yarn material, weight, and weaving constructions), strength determination and homogeneity of the construction.

    For each of the tests a minimum of three runs is made in order to obtain an acceptable average value.

  • Knife Abrasion Test

    Knife Abrasion Test

    A carrier belt covered with the respective protection sleeve or pad runs over a sharp edge at a pre-defined load. The result (number of cycles achieved) is recorded at the point when the protection sleeve/pad is worn and the inner carrier belt is visible.

    For each of the tests a minimum of three runs is made in order to obtain an acceptable average value.

  • Saw Test

    Saw Test

    A steel wire rope, at a pre-defined load, runs over a carrier belt covered with the protection sleeve or pad. The result (number of cycles achieved) is recorded at the point when the protection sleeve /pad is worn and the inner carrier belt is visible.

    For each of the tests a minimum of three runs is made in order to obtain an acceptable average value.

  • Metal Abrasion Test

    Metal Abrasion Test

    A carrier belt is covered with the protection sleeve/pad and runs at a pre-defined load over a U-beam. The result (number of cycles achieved) is recorded when the protection sleeve/pad is worn and the inner carrier belt is visible.

    For each of the tests a minimum of three runs is made in order to obtain an acceptable average value.

  • Metal Abrasion Test

    Static Cut Test

    A sharp knife is pulled through a woven belt covered with the protection sleeve. The result is calculated from the force required to cut completely through the combination of sleeve and belt minus the force required to cut through the belt only excluding the sleeve.

  • Test Results

    Test Results

    • Our Triple A Plus™ HD sleeve considerably outperforms all tested products.

    • Our Triple A Plus™ LD outperforms all tested lighter version sleeves and even some of the solid pads/sleeves for local protection.

    The necessity of having the best protection available when using textile slings in order to avoid cut or abrasion at sharp edges of the load is prescribed in worldwide standards and regulations. The comparisons made in our testing programme give a clear picture on the performances of a wide selection of products available on the market.

IT'S TIME TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE BENEFITS OF TEXTILE SLINGS

INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS

Standards and regulations worldwide, such as “Guidance on safe sling use” (Occupational Safety Health Administration – U.S. Department of Labor), EN 1492-1 & EN 1492-2 (European standards for webbing and round slings) and others, recommend the use of proper protection with textile slings.

The quest for suitable protection sleeves for textile products used in high tensile applications has been a continuous challenge for many years, many products are available on the market. However, none of them can compete with Triple A Plus™ when it comes to abrasion resistance and enhancing health and safety.
