The design of the Magnum-X makes it unique. Whereas the protective jacket of a conventional round sling is woven, Magnum-X has a compact hose cover. The incorporation of high performance polyester makes the hose cover extremely robust and therefore more tear and abrasion resistant than a conventional polyester protective jacket. The fabric is also made entirely of this innovative high performance fibre.

SpanSet GmbH & Co. KG, Übach-Palenberg, is renowned for its innovative products, which meet the highest quality and safety requirements. At the same time the developers are focused on the cost effectiveness and handling of the products. A current example for the company’s successful philosophy is the latest variation of the heavy-duty round sling Magnum-X: The high-performance round sling Magnum-X smart with an additional outer sleeve is particularly designed for heavy-duty and abrasive applications and sets new standards with regard to safety and cost effectiveness.

Round Sling

The Magnum-X smart essentially consists of two parts: One is the very robust outer sleeve, made of hard-wearing high-performance fibres, which if damaged can easily be exchanged. Beneath this is the actual lifting round sling with a hose sleeve which comes in a high-viz yellow colour. Even if the outer sleeve suffers only minimal damage or wear, the inner hose sleeve of the round sling is easily visible due to its striking colour – an unmistakable sign that the outer sleeve needs to be exchanged.

Lifting Sling

In most cases the round sling itself can be repaired for continued use. That means that the utilisation of the Magnum-X smart offers not only added safety, but also gains in cost effectiveness as repairs cost only a fraction of the original acquisition costs for a new round sling. The easily exchangeable outer sleeve saves costs and allows an especially long operating life under highly abrasive conditions as the round sling is as good as new after the exchange procedure.

Lifting Slings

In addition the Magnum-X smart is available in high carrying capacities of 20, 30 and 40 tonnes and offers the same advantages as all Magnum-X round slings. That is, on the one hand, an extremely compact design due to the utilised high-performance polyester core and the innovative hose construction, which compared to conventional round slings provides a clear cross section and width reduction, at the same time ensuring comparable carrying capacities. Furthermore, the low weight clearly facilitates the handling of the round sling. Re- enforcing the outer sleeve with a high-performance fibre results in a much improved abrasion resistance and a higher cut resistance.

The Magnum-X smart is manufactured according to DIN EN 1492-2 and fulfills the required safety levels when hoisting heavy loads. This is also borne out by the tear and abrasion resistant label serially equipped with an RFID-transponder, which is a precondition for electronic test documentation and administration. The hose sleeve carries a raised label which ensures that the information regarding carrying capacity can clearly be read even when heavily soiled. The working temperature range of the Magnum-X smart lies between – 40°C and + 100°C. The extension at WLL (Working Load Limit: carrying capacity in kg in the "single direct" slinging configuration) is less than 1%.


Beneath the very robust outer sleeve is the actual lifting round sling with a hose sleeve which comes in a high-viz yellow colour.
