Various Gleistein products are highly suited for deployment as cable pulling ropes. Important attributes include strength, weight, abrasion resistance, price as well as spliceability. Only spliced ropes maintain their strength and thereby help avoid over-dimensioning. With the large lengths involved with cable pulling, this becomes particularly significant.

  • Cable pulling ropes must be torque-free
  • Delivered in long lengths on special machine reels, which are then placed directly on to the rope winching machines
  • The rope ends are usually pre-spliced

QCM Program

As additional service,we supply a full quality control management program in revising the status of the ropes at predetermined intermediate periods. Contact with damaging elements including dirt, thorns, steel cable and sharp edges is so common in this application, that it is advisable to have Gleistein’s engineers review the circumstances and conditions of use to ensure the maintenance of these high quality products. Our special service ensures that no break possibility is present which could lead to expensive downtime and large extra costs
