Last quote by Johannes de Jong
It is a very light piece of new rope. This is much lighter than normal steel ropes and also much stronger. With this rope we can – for example on a 560 metre high building – reduce 95% of the rope weight; only 5% of the rope weight is remaining. And you have to remember the weight of the rope at this kind of height is over 60% of the total weight of the elevator.feedback
