Choosing the right rope: Even in the system-planning phase before a project begins, parameters that influence the choice of rope are being decided. Whether it is a winter mountain cableway intended for operation during a three-month season or an urban system that will operate 24/7 will have a decisive impact on the selection of rope. In the past, the minimum breaking force was the main factor in the selection of the rope construction; today, other characteristics such as
• fatigue life of the rope
• predictability of rope maintenance and replacement
• 100% availability
• costs beyond the planned rope and system lifespan
• financial planning
• noise emission
• after-sales service
play a more important role as the basis for product decisions.
In addition to various long-lived products, FATZER possesses pivotal tools for calculating the system-specific TCO (total cost of ownership) over the planned fatigue life. Required work on the splice and the rope can be accounted for in the planning phase so that costs and maintenance work can be predicted. Extended guarantee and maintenance packages can be customized to the customer‘s needs.
