Standards for static ropes

Static Ropes according to EN 1891

This European standard defines the requirements for static ropes (low stretch kernmantel ropes)

Within the EN 1891 we differentiate between the following rope types:

Type A:
Ropes intended for use as safety ropes for working at heights (in combination with the relevant equipment) and as rescue ropes. Diameter 10 – 16 mm / Test weight dynamic test 100 kg.

Type B:
Ropes of smaller diameter and lower strength than Type A. Test weight dynamic test 80 kg. Usually used in combination with specially developed abseiling equipment according to EN 341.

Static breaking strenght

Rope:
Typ A: ≥ 22 kN
Typ B: ≥ 18 kN

End loop (figure of eight knot):
Typ A: ≥ 15 kN
Typ B: ≥ 12 kN

Rope Elongation at 150 kg

Tpy A: ≤ 5%
Typ B: ≤ 5%

Impact Force - fall height 0,6m; fall factor 0,3

Typ A: ≥ 5 / 100 kg
Typ B: ≥ 5 / 80 kg

Falls held - fall height 2m; fall factor 1

Typ A: ≥ 5 / 100kg
Typ B: ≥ 5 / 80kg

Knotability 

Typ A: 1,2 D
Typ B: 1,2 D

Sheath Slippage

Typ A: ≤ 30mm
Typ B: ≤ 15mm
