Cables for Cranes

Future Fibres high performance cables offer an interesting alternative to traditional steel cables. They have distinctive benefits such as weight reduction, improved fatigue resistance, extended cable life and reduced maintenance cost. The reduction in weight generates a higher static load capacity and an improved load chart allowing for increased outreach and load capacities of up to 50%.

These combined benefits provide a lifetime cost reduction making Future Fibres high performance composite cables ideal to replace both short wire lifting cables with composites lifting strops, and steel structural cables with  carbon cables in applications including tower, luffing and portable cranes.
