Selecting the right rope for the appropriate application requires great care. Using the wrong rope might have serious consequences, such as property damage or personal injury. The users must always be familiar with the correct procedures and pertinent safety regulations. If a product is used improperly or is overloaded, dangerous situations can arise. Selecting the correct rope is essential for special applications. Our experts will gladly advise you on selecting the right rope.


The maintenance, monitoring and discard criteria of wire ropes are described in detail in currently valid
standards, such as DIN ISO 4309 and the guideline VDI 2358. In addition, please follow all regulations set by public authorities and by employer’s liability insurance associations and follow the regulations of the respective device manufacturer as well.

The nominal tensile strengths of the wires listed in the product tables are specified in N/mm2.

You can find additional notes in our printed operating instructions for wire ropes or in the electronic version on our website.

We reserve the right to make technical changes and we accept no liability for typographical and printing errors.
