Diameter and circumference are nominal. A new unused rope in relaxed state will measure larger; loading and use compacts ropes, sets splices and lessens rope size. This is especially prevalent in sizes above 4″ diameter. Published nominal sizes from 4-1/8″ and larger represent stabilized or preloaded size.
Published weights of sizes 1-5/8″ – 4″ diameter are calculated at linear density under stated preload (200d²) plus 4%. For this chart, sizes 4-1/8″ – 8-1/4″ diameter represent un-cycled, (non-stabilized) weights.
Tensile Strength determined in accordance with Cordage Institute 1500 Test Methods for Fiber Ropes and ISO 2307.
* Sizes available up to 8-1/4 inches. Contact your Lifting Specialist for more details.
* Value based on data supplied by the fiber manufacturer for new, dry fiber
