Why choose Dyneema®?
With loads getting heavier and deadlines tighter, today’s crane operators are constantly facing the challenge of how to increase their productivity.
Traditional steel ropes are extremely heavy in large quantities, which reduces the maximum lifting capacity for any crane. Ropes with Dyneema® are incredibly lightweight – 80% lighter than steel wire rope at the same strength – which give cranes the potential to handle higher payloads. Ropes with Dyneema® have a longer service life so fewer rope changes are needed. Furthermore ropes with Dyneema® show no stretch during lifting, are torque free, and require no lubrication or produce ‘fishhooks’ like steel wire rope.
