Elevator Rope

We are proud to work with several major international suppliers of elevator rope, with customers across the world trusting in their high-performance rope and long service life. Working with these suppliers enables us to offer a variety of high quality elevator rope to suit any requirement.

In the various elevator designs, the rope is subjected to very different demands. The choice of the correct rope construction results from the following needs:

  • high resistance to rope fatigue
  • high wear resistance
  • low elongation

Strand construction

Seale (S) 1-9-9
The thicker wires of the outer strand layer provide greater wear resistance. Ropes with such strands are mainly used when the rope service life is more strongly impacted by abrasion than by rope fatigue due to bending.
See PAWO F3, F819 S-FC, F819 S-FC DT

Warrington (W) 1-6-6-6
With its thinner outer wires, the Warrington construction is more flexible and better resists fatigue bending than the Seale construction. Ropes with such strands are often used where the service life of the rope is strongly influenced by fatigue due to bending and smaller sheaves than by abrasion of the outer wires.

Filler (F) 1-4-4-8 or 1-5-5-10
This construction employs the advantages of the above strand types. It has thinner wires for flexibility, a higher metallic cross section for greater breaking strength and thicker outer wires to fight against abrasion. Ropes with such strands are being used in high-rise/high-speed elevators which demand the most in the areas of elongation, round cross-section, flexibility, fatigue resistance and breaking strength.
