New Sling-Shield Size Protects Even the Largest of Vessels and Vessel Finishes from Boat Lift Slings

To help protect a boat’s finish from marks caused by boat lift slings during launch and haul-out, international premium shrink wrap supplier, Dr. Shrink, now offers Sling-Shield in three different sizes to accommodate all sling sizes. Made with a 6 or 8-mil white polyethylene material, the Sling Shield is on a continuous roll that has been formulated specifically for use on boat lift slings and fork lift tines.
Made from 100% virgin resins, the Sling-Shield is designed to resist tearing and punctures. Sling-Shield is also easy to keep clean as dirt and grime can just be pressure washed away. This product is simple to install and only requires one person to get the job done. It shrinks with very low heat.
In addition to its use on boat lift slings, Sling-Shield is great for protecting sail boat masts during transportation. It’s also helpful as a ventilation tube, when used with a fan to allow air flow into boats during service and manufacture.
Sling-Shield was developed by Euroglass and is available in three widths; 16″ for standard slings, 18″ for slings with rub-rail pads, and now in 36” wide for covering even the largest of yacht slings (100 ton and larger). All rolls come 600’ long and prices start at $207.00 for a 16” wide roll.
A poly vinyl tape that is used to hold the Sling-Shield to a desired location on a boat lift sling is also offered by Dr. Shrink.
