How It’s Made: Shade Sail Cables

In this video we show you how we used Crosby WireLock and Crosby Spelter Sockets on 1 1/8″ Galvanized Cable to help create the Shade Sail Structure for the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art

The project was designed by architect Jonathan Hess of Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf, who also designed the main building of the museum.

The Shade Sail Structure was installed by F.A. Wilhelm Construction Company, Inc. of Indianapolis, IN.

How It’s Made Wire Rope Slings

Watch as one of our specially trained wire rope fabricators works on a wire rope sling using the Flemish eye method. After performing the process, it is sealed with a half million pounds then load tested at 150% the working load limit of the sling. Then we finish the process by marking the sling with a gold color to show that our quality gold standard slings have met the industry standards.

Load Testing

In this video, we load test a 2 ¼ ” welded ladle chain. Designed to lift 85,000 pounds this chain is load tested to double the working load limit. We do this to ensure that this chain will not fail while lifting and pouring pots of liquid metal. This chain is a crucial part in the production of steel.

We offer proof testing in our shop for chains, wire rope slings, and other various products. For more information about pricing and availability, please send us an inquiry
