1. WITH OVER THREE decades of experience in the conversion of synthetic materials into lifting and lashing products, Checkmate has established itself as a global leader in this field, with its products being exported to all parts of the world. Our growth and continued development has only been made possible by the outstanding commitment and loyalty of our customers. This co-operation has led to several long term partnerships, resulting in the manufacture of products and equipment tailored precisely to our customers needs. Quality has always been a watchword at Checkmate and our systems are second to none. We have our own in-house test facilities which are used extensively in product and material development. We are UKAS accredited to ISO 9001:2000 and we hold approvals from amongst others, the American Bureau of Shipping. As a market leader we operate a continuous investment programme in both new equipment and technology to ensure that Checkmate remains at the forefront in the design and manufacture of textile lifting products.

4. l - lifting & lashings 50 Our new “HERCULES” Roundsling machine is capable of manufacturing conventional polyester Roundslings up to 200MT @ 7:1 s/f with circumferences of up to 120M. In UHMWPE (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) and bearing the VIKING WARRIOR branding the limit is only the machine that can break our slings! But 1000T @ 5:1 is definitely achievable. With laser and computer controlled accuracy for length and for matched pairs up to 120m circumfrence. It’s the only machine in the World to passively control the tension of the base yarns during manufacture. Driven by Mitsubishi touch screen advanced HDI interfaces the machine has a recipe book of sling formula’s which the operator can access at the touch of a button with operator fail safes built in for: sling length, number of yarn turns, number of yarn ends, speed, tension and number of slings made in one batch before a trigger for manufacture is alerted.

2. l - lifting & lashings • 1 Use only identified slings. • 2 Do not use a damaged sling. Observable damage is the most reliable sign of weakness, particularly if a new sling is available for comparison. • 3 Note the correct ‘Safe Working Load’ for the mode use (see safety chart above). • 4 If intensive use is to be made of a sling in choked hitch, protection at the point of choke is recommended. Allow the angle of choke to form naturally - do not force. • 5 Never engage a textile sling with anything which may damage it. The lifting device, where it engages with the sling, should be smooth, without sharp edges and of the correct size so as to avoid excessive opening of the eyes or excessive loading of sewn parts. • 6 Observe the following precautions: a) ensure that the sling is suitable for the load lifted; b) do not drag loads when slung; c) do not lift with slings which are knotted or twisted; d) in cases where contact with sharp edges is possible, make sure that protective sleeves or patches are provided and that they are correctly located; e) do not allow the sling to remain under load for longer than necessary; f) do not pull sling from under the load when the load is resting on the sling; g) avoid snatch or shock loading; h) avoid eye opening angle of more than 20 (see 5); i) ensure that the included angles for 2-leg and 4-leg slings do not exceed 90 degrees. • 7 Ensure that the load will remain stable when lifted, and that when more than one sling is used for a single load, that the weight is properly distributed between the slings or sling legs. • 8 If slings are to be used where contact with chemicals is possible, or other extreme conditions such as high temperatures may be encountered, please seek advice. • 9 Store slings away from sources of ultraviolet radiation, (including sunlight) to avoid degradation. • 10 Do not dry or store slings near a source of heat. Store them on a suitable rack in a free circulation of air. • 11 Inspect slings before and during use (see 2). • 12 Never attempt to repair a damaged sling. In cases of doubt, return it to Checkmate. • 1 Examine the sling throughout its length for surface chafe, cuts in the webbing or selvedges or the cover and core of roundslings. Examine stitching of seams and eyes. Examine end fittings for cracks or damage. • 2 Chemical damage will show as local softening or powdering of the sling or its outer cover. • 3 In case of cuts or significant abrasion or of any case of doubt, the sling should be taken out of service and the advice of the supplier sought. Polyester slings should be used whenever a minimum of stretch is required. They are unaffected by common acids and hot bleaching solutions. Polyester slings must not be used with Sulphoric Acid* or strong Alkalis**. Not suitable for use at temperatures exceeding 200°C. Stretch at rated capacity is approximately 3%.
