SlingBag® patented system is designed to move and place burlap bags for use in underwater pipe stabilization, protection and separation applications.  Its use is over 5 times faster and safer than conventional methods – every time! SlingBag® is safe, and has been proven to be the most economical method of underwater burlap bag placement.


Woven polypropylene fabric SlingBag® with four 24” polyester lifting loops. Holds fifty-six (56) - 60 lb. burlap bags.

SlingBag® can be lifted with a single point pick up and lowered into water or onto a land job site. The SlingBag® has been used in applications in excess of 8,000 feet water depth.

SlingBag® can be placed and released with a Remote Offshore Vehicle (ROV) by simply unhooking any two lifting loops in a row.

Up to 5 times faster & safer than conventional/individual bag placement – ever time! The released burlap bags create a bonded support pyramid for a pipeline. Full SlingBags™ can be left underwater as supports allowing easy access to valves, pipelines or other protected structures.
