Sharp edge: Edge radius
If the edge radius is smaller than the thickness of the lifting strap, the edge is considered „sharp“. Lateral motion or pressure alone may be enough to cut through the textile fibres of the lifting strap. The 5-6 mm secutex coating sits between the load and the textile load lifting accessory. The edge radius is increased by this layer. The edge is no longer sharp against the lifting strap and lift forces are directed away from the edge.
