Hoist Ropes

With the advent of high rise elevators and increased car speeds, elevator designers and manufacturers frequently select a higher strength hoist rope.  The grade of steel (traction, extra high strength traction) is dependent upon many factors, the most critical being load requirement and car speed. It is not always advantageous to use an EHS traction rope where traction will suffice. The low carbon wire used on traction grade wire ropes may provide better fatigue life than a higher carbon EHS wire.

Drum and Counterweight


Use 8x19 Seale traction steel ropes for most drum and counterweight ropes. If the drum and sheave material of the existing elevator is softer than that required for traction steel, the use of iron ropes may be considered.

Compensating Ropes

8x25 Filler Wire traction steel ropes provide longer and more economical service. For existing installations that require iron, WW suggests 8x25 Filler Wire.

Governor Ropes

Use an 8-strand traction steel governor rope for longer service life, unless iron is specified. Make sure replacement governor ropes are in accordance with the elevator manufacturer’s specifications

Steel Chemistry

A combination of steel grades is used and heat treatment processes to manufacture soft, medium and hard tensile grades. The table below is indicative only of steel chemistries used.
