Isn’t this the dream of every ardent skier: wedeling downhill merrily and then being taken uphill again within minutes in comfort and at ease by a ropeway or gondola?

Year after year, ski lift and/or ropeway operators are faced with this challenge: to take any number of winter and summer tourists from the valley up the mountain, safely and quickly. And not only in the mountains but in the cities, too, passenger ropeways play an increasing role in the daily transport of great numbers of people. To ensure that transportation is effected safely and fast, not only the appropriate lift systems are required, but also reliable ropeway ropes for passenger ropeways. And these very ropes for ropeways are one of the specialities of Teufelberger-Redaelli.

TEUFELBERGER-REDAELLI steel wire ropes afford safety and reliability for your passenger ropeway system.
Our vast experience in steel wire rope manufacturing gained over two generations helps us create optimized products for all fields of use in the passenger ropeway segment.


Our steel wire ropes are “Made in Austria and Italy”

Our high-performance steel wire ropes for passenger ropeways are developed and produced at two locations in Austria and two in Italy. We produce advanced steel wire ropes for the most spectacular ropeway projects all over the world. Our focus is set on the high requirements in terms of the rope’s service life as well as smooth running behaviour, which we meet through our special rope constructions and production technologies.

With our pioneering rope technologies such as SOLITEC® and SUPEFILL®, we can guarantee long maintenance intervals and thus less downtime, which constitutes a key factor for the success of a ropeway operator.

Our carrying ropes often do their duty throughout the entire lifetime of the ropeway system – and that with great reliability, low maintenance requirements, and the utmost riding comfort.
