Steel wire ropes - Safety - Part 3: Information for use and maintenance


This Part of this European Standard specifies the additional materials, manufacturing and testing requirements to those given in Part 1 for spiral ropes incorporating zinc or zinc alloy coated wires for general structural applications. This standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to spiral ropes for general structural applications, when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see clause 4 of EN 12385-1:2002). This standard applies to spiral ropes for general structural applications which are manufactured after the date of its publication. NOTE For information only, typical breaking forces for both full-locked coil rope and spiral strand rope are given in annexes B and C for some of the more common sizes.
