Special purpose ropes, like standard ropes, are made from sets of wires helically wound around a central wire in one or more layers, forming strands. These strands are in turn wound around a core or a core wire to form multi-strand ropes. In contrast to standard cables, special cables can be accompanied by a PVC sheath to protect the cable. Thus, there are several types of special ropes depending on the number of strands and wires and the core chosen.

In the category of special cables we offer you all cables that are not intended for "standard" applications. For example, you will find the cable for Tirfor® type through-cable devices. This cable cannot be used outside of this application because it has a different number of strands and wires and a different colour than other cables. This rope is supplied with a safety hook with latch.

There are also 7-strand galvanised cables with a PVC sheath in different colours. The special sheathed ropes are made of 1770 N/mm2 steel with a metal core. They are available in diameters from 2-3 to 10-12 mm and are robust and conform to the relevant standards. You can choose the colour of the sheath (transparent, red, green or white). To order your cable with PVC jacket, please contact our customer service for a quote. Our special cables are sold in lengths of one meter. As with the choice of colour, please contact our customer service department if you require longer lengths.

How do I choose a specific cable ?

To choose a specific cable for your lifting operation, you first need to know the type of machine on which the cable will be installed (crane, jib ...) as well as the working environment. Is it a lifting operation in a wet or corrosive environment ?

The diameter of the rope and the crossing direction must then be known, it may be a right or left crossing rope.

Things such as minimum breakage, winding diameter and maximum working load should also be known beforehand to ensure that you are using the right rope for your load.

Make sure to check your hoist ropes before each use to avoid any risk of accident. If you notice any deformation, tearing, crushing or other damage, do not use the hoisting rope. You can have your ropes checked by a lifting specialist to ensure that they are still valid. We inspect and test all lifting devices, ropes and chains.
