What is the Term ‘Wire Rope Safety Factor?
Wire ropes are essential for safety purposes on construction sites and industrial workplaces. They are used to secure and transport extremely heavy pieces of equipment – so they must be strong enough to withstand substantial loads. This is why the wire rope safety factor is crucial.
You may have heard that it is always recommended to use wire ropes or slings with a higher breaking strength than the actual load. For instance, say that you need to move 50,000 lbs. with an overhead crane. You should generally use equipment with a working load limit that is rated for weight at least five times higher – or 250,000 lbs. in this case.
This recommendation is all thanks to the wire rope safety factor. This calculation is designed to help you determine important numbers, such as the minimum breaking strength and the working load limit of a wire rope.
At Elite Sales, we get a lot of questions regarding overhead lifting equipment. But as a wire rope distributor, explaining safety factors is one of the most important topics to discuss.
So, let’s break down what the wire rope safety factor is and what it means for overhead lifting, rigging, and construction purposes.
Safety Factor Meaning
The safety factor is a measurement of how strong of a force a wire rope can withstand before it breaks. It is commonly stated as a ratio, such as 5:1. This means that the wire rope can hold five times their Safe Work Load (SWL) before it will break.
So, if a 5:1 wire rope’s SWL is 10,000 lbs., the safety factor is 50,000 lbs. However, you would never want to place a load near 50,000 lbs. for wire rope safety reasons.
The safety factor rating of a wire rope is the calculation of the Minimum Break Strength (MBS) or the Minimum Breaking Load (MBL) compared to the highest absolute maximum load limit. It is crucial to use a wire rope with a high ratio to account for factors that could influence the weight of the load.
Some of these factors that can impact the strength of the wire rope include:
Speed of operation
Wind velocity and weather conditions
Acceleration and deceleration
Length of the rope
Shock loading (unexpected drops)
To account for these factors and ensure that the load does not approach the MBL, it is wise to choose a wire rope with a good safety factor ratio.
Safe Working Load
The Safe Working Load (SWL) is a measurement that is required by law to be clearly marked on all lifting devices – including hoists, lifting machines, and tackles. However, this is not visibly listed on wire ropes, so it is important to understand what this term means and how to calculate it.
The way to determine the SWL is by squaring the diameter of the rope and multiplying it by 8 kgs. Thankfully, most wire rope distributors will present this calculation for you.
The safe working load will change depending on the diameter of the wire rope and its weight per foot. Of course, the smaller the wire rope is, the lower its SWL will be. The SWL also changes depending on the safety factor ratio.
The swaged safety wire rope sling is essential for safety purposes on lighting, construction sites, and industrial workplaces. They are used to secure light or heavy pieces of a lighting fixture or other equipment.
The swaged safety wire rope sling is usually used on LED Lights, Art paintings, display billboards, and other items which has to secure it from high hanging ceilings. It is a second security to prevent the items which are on the high ceilings from falling down under special or unexpected circumstances
