New safety requirements for stranded ropes used in lifts which fall under the Lifts Directive and the Machinery Directive.

EN 12385-5 specifies the materials, manufacturing and testing requirements for stranded ropes for suspension, compensating and governor duties for traction drive and hydraulic lifts moving between guides and similar applications.

The release of a load due to a steel wire ropes failure endangers the safety or health of persons within the danger zone. EN 12385-5 considers in particular mechanical hazards due to insufficient mechanical strength and inadequate choice or integration of ropes in the lift/machine.

It does not establish requirements for information for use which are provided in Part 1 of Clause 7. Neither does it cover the requirements for ropes fitted with terminations.

Minimum breaking force values for the more common classes, sizes and grades of rope are provided.
