New rope testing laboratory at Gleistein

State-of-the-art facility enables extensive tests in closely replicated real-life conditions with loads of up to 300 tons

It’s now up and running: Gleistein’s new rope testing laboratory. Located at the Gleistein Ropes headquarters in Bremen, Germany, the high-tech facility firmly cements the company’s reputation as a leader in textile rope research and development. In addition to conducting classic tensile tests for assessing break loads and undertaking OCIMF conforming tests, the new laboratory also enables individual programs to be executed including precise shock and continuous load simulations as well as testing in liquids – with maximum loads extending all the way to 3,000 kN.
