GPS – Glove™ Power Silk

The GPS is designed specifically for situations where the user has to sit on a sling in a moulded chair. The fabric is unique in that it is soft, silky and strong, as you would expect from a sling.

High Air permeability helps to reduce sweating and associated risks, and the unique shape (similar to the Airflow) provides full support and security. There are also pockets to ‘hide’ away the straps when not in use, which eliminates the risk of snagging.

Our Glove™ slings are available in 12 sizes, with clip and loop options. The Safe Working Load for sizes 1-9 is 200kg and 350kg for sizes 10-12.

All of our slings have contrasting colours for safety critical stitching and are compatible with most hoists. Contact us for sling compatibility confirmation.

By using our sizing chart, you can save assessment time and get it right the very first time!
