Australian Patent Office Issues Patent for Inspection Roundsling

The Commonwealth of Australia’s Patent Office issued the patent for First Sling Technology’s Full Inspection RoundSling Technology (FIRST) on March 17.

The inspectable roundsling has been introduced by First Sling, Yukon, Okla., in western Australia in recent months, but the issuance of the patent brings opportunities to the company for building a preferred team of licensed manufacturers and authorized distributors for FIRST Polyester-FP, and High Performance-FHPZ roundslings to serve the lifting and rigging industries.

Murdock Webbing Co., Central Falls, R.I., weaves and supplies the Clear Cover and Filtec Precise, the polyester and EHP high-performance yarns for the licensed FIRST manufacturing team worldwide.
