Additional information: I'D test results
- Read the technical notice before viewing the following techniques.
- It is important to fully understand the information provided in the technical notice before using this complementary information
- Mastering these techniques requires training.
- Consult a professional before attempting to perform these techniques on your own.
1. Dynamic tests
- Rope length: 2 m
- Mass:100 kg
- Fall factor 1
The values given are averages; they vary depending on the rope models used. Values recorded during tests with new ropes, certified to current European standards (EN 1891, EN 892).
|Rope diameter||Rope type||Impact force||Onset of rope slippage in the I’D|
|10 mm||dynamic||4.4 kN||40 cm|
|10 mm||semi-static||5.5 kN||35 cm|
|11 mm||dynamic||6.6 kN||0 cm|
|11 mm||semi-static||7.8 kN||20 cm|
|11.5 mm||static||9.1 kN||15 cm|
2. Static tests
Gradual increase of tensile force (F); test stopped at first rope slippage in the device.
|Rope diameter||Rope type||Rope slippage in the I’D|
|10 mm||semi-static||4.4 kN|
|11 mm||semi-static||6.5 kN|
|11.5 mm||semi-static||7 kN|
