In the products, raw materials are used that respect the environment as much as possible. Packing material is free of PVC, cardboard boxes and spools are recyclable, and pigments are free of cadmium and other heavy metals.

 

To determine whether you can lift a weight safely, you need to divide the Minimum Breaking Load (=MBL) of the rope by 6.
Example:
MBL = 1500 kg : 6 = 250 kg safe lifting weight
Attention! Polyethylene must never be used for hoisting.
