Ropeways are among the safest public means of transport. A high level of safety can be achieved through strict rules, particular care in the design, calculation and project planning of the installations as well as by use of high quality materials and application of advanced manufacturing methods and professional assembly. After the construction of a ropeways installation, it is up to the operator to ensure its ultimate safety and efficiency through a series of daily checks and comprehensive inspections of the installation.
Regular wire rope maintenance procedures are essential to increasing the service life of wire ropes and to ensuring their ultimate operational safety. Over time, wire ropes will stretch and they may become damaged or dry out. The national rope regulations organization specifies in detail the dates for the maintenance of ropes as well as their relocation and replacement periods. Regular inspections of the rope diameter, lay length and rope fabric must be carried out by qualified personnel. Rope cleaning and lubrication equipment especially developed for the demands of a wide range of mountain ropes are utilized worldwide for efficient maintenance. Professional maintenance of stranded ropes and track ropes comprises refurbishment of the splice and the use of repair pieces and wires, as well as rope shortening.
