Lift-2S double strain pendant crane cable

Multicore cables with 2 external steel strain wires used in elevators, converters, shelving racks, cable lines etc.

Category: Flatform, Crane and Drum Reeling

Product Specification

Lift-2S double strain flexible multicore pendant crane cable is designed for use in for control applications in elevators, converters, shelving racks or cable lines. The two external strain wires are used to relieve stress. It can also be used as self-supporting shaft cable. 

There are three different versions of Lift-2S double strain pendant cables. The mini black and cold flex black versions are suitable for internal or external use whereas the yellow version is recommended for installation indoors only.

The two special torsion-free steel supporting elements found parallel on both sides of the outer jacket are designed to absorb the resulting tensile load during operations. These cables are not suitable for drum reeling installations (where cable is continuously reeled in and out on pulleys or drums under tensile loads).

Polyvinylchloride (PVC) Properties: These compounds are self-extinguishing with fair abrasive resistance, good resistance to water, aqueous salt solutions, acids and alkalis.
