Flexisteel® elevator rope

Flexisteel® elevator rope
Flexisteel® elevator cable is an innovative traction member for electric machine roomless lifts (MRL) and lift renovation projects.  It consists of a high tensile steel wire elevator rope covered with a thermoplastic coating. 

The combination of these properties results in a lighter, thinner and more durable high traction steel wire rope.  Its properties do not only exceed those of conventional elevator cables, it also allows a more economical elevator design than flat belts.  This makes it the best quality-price elevator hoist cable solution available on the market today.

Flexisteel® elevator rope accommodates lightweight, energy efficient cabins and contributes to silent, vibration-free rides.  Its low loading elongation provides a high landing accuracy making them ideal for elevators in tall buildings.  Flexisteel® is particularly maintenance friendly as it doesn’t need to be lubricated nor does it require replacing the traction sheave when a new elevator rope is installed.

Flexisteel® elevator cable is patented and TÜV certified.
