Cable Diameter | Breaking Strength | Working Load Limit (5:1) Design Factor |
---|---|---|

1/4″ | 7,000 lbs | 1,400 lbs |

5/16″ | 9,800 lbs | 1,960 lbs |

3/8″ | 14,400 lbs | 2,880 lbs |

## How do you calculate wire rope load capacity?

Formula: SWL (kg) = D2(mm) x 8 For example: Rope dia (D) = 12 mm SWL (kg) = D2 (mm) x 8 = D (mm) x D (mm) x 8 = 12 x 12 x 8 = 1152 kg SWL (t) = 1.15 tonnes The above equation can be reversed to calculate the diameter (D) in millimetres of FSWR needed to lift a given load.

## What is the breaking strength of 1/4 wire rope?

Breaking strength: 6,400 lb. Weighs approximately 0.111 lb/per foot.

## How strong is a 1/4 steel cable?

## How do you calculate work load limit for rope?

SWL or WLL are calculated by dividing MBL by a safety factor (SF). An example of this would be a chain that has a MBL of 2000 lbf (8.89 kN) would have a SWL or WLL of 400 lbf (1.78 kN) if a safety factor of 5 (5:1, 5 to 1, or 1/5) is used.

## What is working load limit for rope?

Work Load Limits are the load that a rope in good condition with appropriate splices in non-critical applications is subjected to during normal activity. They are normally expressed as a percentage of new rope strength and should not exceed 20% of the stated break strength.

## How strong is 6mm wire rope?

060. A robust & versatile cable 6mm 7×19 construction is a very flexible galvanised steel wire rope with a breaking load limit of 2604kgs. Its high breaking strength makes it an ideal all purpose cable for indoor use.
