Technical Information
Any warranties, expressed or implied, concerning the use of Wire Rope Products apply to the minimum breaking strength of new, unused Wire Rope when tested in a standard testing machine, under controlled conditions, in direct tension, with both ends fixed to prevent rotation under load, and at a uniform rate of speed. The Terms 'Working Load Limit (WLL)', 'Capacity', 'Minimum Breaking Strength', 'Nominal Breaking Strength', or 'Acceptance Strength' contains no implication of what load a Wire Rope will withstand if not properly used, or if it suffers abuse. All equipment using Wire Rope must be properly maintained. Wire Rope and their attached hardware must be properly stored, handled, used and maintained. Most importantly, Wire Rope and their attached hardware must be regularly inspected before and during each use. Inspections must meet local, or applicable national safety regulations. Damage, abuse, overloading, or improper maintenance can cause failure and accidents. Wire Rope removal criteria are based on steel sheaves. If synthetic sheaves are used, consult the sheave manufacturer. If in doubt about the safe and proper use of these products consult
