Running cables, 20% Discount



Why do I have to change my cable?

To properly operate a water ski facility or cableway without any accidents, the inspection of the safety-relevant components is crucial. These include the wire ropes – running cables.

Linear cableways have a very high frequency of changes of direction due to the short travel length of mostly 150 meters and thus frequent bending changes of the circulating cable on the pulley. The bending changes show themselves in the discard criteria (which defines the point in time, when the rope must be changed at the latest). Especially at linear cableways, the individual cable runs through / over the pulley every 10-20 seconds.

The wires are bent and heavily loaded selectively. This will cause wires to break after a while. The broken wires leads to a reduced load capacity of the circulating cable. If there is too much wire breakage, the rope does no longer have the required minimum breaking load.

Result: The rope can / will break

DO NOT RISK ANY DAMAGE AND CHANGE YOUR Running Cable BEFORE THE SEASON STARTs.
OUR MECHANICS can HELP YOU


According to the manufacturer's instructions in the manual you have to change your cable every 500 hours. This means with a daily operation of 8 hours, the cable has to be changed every two months.

The manufacturer does not specify an explicit change interval after operating hours. However, the following information is noted in the operating instructions.

The cable has to be changed if:
- On a cable length of 320 mm seven wires are broken.
- On a cable length of 48 oder 480? mm five wires are broken.
- On a cable length of 4000 mm 28 wires are broken.

This means you have to check your cable with a visual inspection and judge by what you see.

In the European Union, you as operator are responsible for the operational safety of your machine and are liable for negligence. Therefore, it is essential to comply with the replacement intervals specified by the manufacturer.

Your cable will break. You act negligently and, in the worst case, endanger the life and health of your guests / visitors. In cableway models such as the System 2.0 or identical machines with a tower height > 8 meters there is also the danger of the towers falling over in a circumferential cable tear.
Note! The towers can kill people.

Formula: (Tower distance x 2) plus safety extra length 20m
Example: (190m x 2) plus 20m = 400m - Choose a wire length of 400m
Note! Do not buy the running cable too short. It will be cut off for you individually. A return is excluded.
