Choosing a rope requires comprehensive consideration of various factors. For example: compare the specifications, usage, preference for specific colors, feel in the hand, etc. of the rope. It is precisely because of this complexity that it must be considered from many aspects in order to choose a truly suitable cable.
Choose according to intensity needs
The tensile strength of the rope is one of the most commonly used characteristics for selecting rope products. Generally speaking, the strength of the cable should be matched to the requirements of the application.
Ship design MBL is the core parameter. All other components of the ship’s mooring system are sized according to this parameter and have specified tolerances.
Rope Design Breaking Force (LDBF) is the minimum breaking force of a new, dry, buckled mooring rope during testing. This applies to all mooring ropes and cable tail materials. When selecting the rope, the rope LDBF should be 100%-105% of the ship design MBL.
The working load limit (WLL) is the maximum load that the mooring rope should bear during operation and use calculated according to standard environmental conditions.
All cables must be tested for strength. Because this helps customers choose the right cable size and strength under the required application environment, and to ensure the maximum safety and service life.
