8×19 Seale, 8×25 Filler, 8×36 WS, IWRC, regular strands
Overhead crane hoisting rope.
Extremely flexible rope types with up to 288 single wires (8x36) in the outer strands. Better fatigue performance and fatigue life expectancy than 6x19/6x36. Due to the larger number of outer wires these ropes tend to be more sensitive to mechanical damages.
All 8-strand constructions require proper sheave- and drum groove dimensions. Undersized and/or worn sheaves will immediately result in rope deformations, waviness, or high strands. These ropes require extra care during installation (no reverse bend spooling).
