Systems that cover short distances or have long operating hours and little downtime put above-average strain on the ropes. In these cases it definitely makes sens to use a compacted 8-strand rope with a Fullplast insert in order to increase the fatigue life of the rope considerably. The 8-strand compacted OCTURA® is the basis of a long fatigue life. Frequently, however, the problems related to product lifespan are not found in the open stretches of the rope; instead, it is the spices that limit the lifespan of the rope. Comprehensive tests and valuable feedback from our customers have shown that the fatigue life of the rope is approximately doubled with the 8-strand FATZER splice.
