WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT?
The Sling ID Blank Tags provide a big space where you can write the sling user’s name and other details. You can use the tag to write any information, such as a person’s name or room number.
These Tags are durable, strong tags, which you can fit to any brand of sling. The material is soft enough so that if it does touch the skin there are no sharp edges. The material and the fastening mechanism, are also strong enough to stay on a sling during the washing process.
This product can be used in other settings where a washable, laundry-safe ID tag is needed.
Sold in packs of 20.
WHO IS THIS PRODUCT SUITABLE FOR?
The Sling Inspection tags will help anyone involved with hoist lifter sling inspections, such as physical therapists, occupational therapists, nurse managers, nurses and carers.
BRIEF INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Fold the arrowhead and secure through the slot.
WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT MADE FROM?
ALTERNATIVE OR RELATED PRODUCTS
The Tags are intended to stay on the sling permanently, and are therefore required to withstand general sling cleaning. Consequently, excessive chlorine/bleach can damage any material, including sling material. Slings should never be placed directly next to the heat source in dryers, as excessive heat can badly affect the sling and Tag material. If necessary to tumble dry, ensure the drum is cool and the dryer is on a cool setting. Only tumble dry for a minimum time. We do not take responsibility if excessive heat destroys the plastic in the Tag. Variations in washing processes, and the variability of other items in the wash, may mean a Tag becomes detached. A warm tumble dry may curl the edges of the arrowhead, which may contribute to a Tag detaching.
Testing: The Tags were washed in a commercial washing machine using industrial detergent over 200 times up to 80°C (176°F). They were cool tumble dried as well as being line dried to test for expose to sunlight (UV). The testing showed virtually no loss of quality of both the material and printing. If you do experience any loss of quality, it may be an indication that your Tags have been exposed to a more damaging washing agent than what were tested, in which case the Tags can be replaced.
