NASA Slings Project



Designed and fabricated by BLP Houston, this sling basket was created to secure and recover the NASA capsule pictured to the right.  After being deployed into one of the outer atmospheres, it will return to earth and land in the water. A team of NASA and Navy divers will recover the capsule to study it.  This sling was specifically designed to not disrupt or impact any part of the capsule, in order to study it correctly.


Click here to see more images of the sling being fitted onto the capsule at the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory in Houston, TX.


Modulift Spreader Bars

Modulift Spreader Bars provide the ideal solution for most lifting requirements - versatile and cost-effective, the Modulift range of Spreader Bar has capacity from 2 to 5000t with spans up to 100 metres (330ft). The modular configuration and interchangeable components enable Modulift Spreaders to be reused over many lifts. Every Modulift Spreader Bars  consists of a pair of End Units and a pair of Drop Links, with interchangeable Struts that can be bolted into the assembly between the End Units, to either lengthen or shorten the Beam to suit the requirements of the lift - making them reusable at different spans.
