The STRATOS® LIFT is the textile, lightweight hoist rope for cable cranes.


Diameter: 13 and 15 mm
Length: Variable, made as needed
Construction: Kernmantle rope
Material: UHMWPE
Color: Yellow with black torsion & length markings
Certification :
2006/42/EG for the lifting of loads

Its unique design features a thermally pre-stretched UHMWPE core and an immensely abrasionresistant, coated UHMWPE cover.

At 1/5th the weight of a conventional steel wire rope, this rope allows transporting a higher payload and makes work in difficult terrain much easier. Optimum spooling behavior and avoidance of injuries caused by protruding wires make this rope an ideal and safe working tool for forestry professionals.

  • 80 % lighter than comparable steel wire ropes
  • higher payload on rope cranes due to lower empty weight
  • best spooling behavior on drums
  • easy pull-out
  • best handling, especially in difficult terrain
  • “cut-ins”, i.e., a scenario where in multilayer winding the rope forces its way in between lower winding layers on the
  • drum, are largely no problem for the rope
  • no injury hazard due to protruding wires
  • minimal elongation; hence, exact positioning of loads
  • high abrasion resistance and lifetime
  • certified to Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC for the lifting of loads
