Safe tensioning of track ropes.

Wire ropes need to be very safe to sustain high forces. The same is valid for the tensioning tools used at the anchors. GANTNER disposes of various tensioning tools, clamps and tensioning sets for specific rope diameters. For detailed information, download our components catalogue.

Spare parts are available for all our components. A detailed list of the spare parts will be provided on request.


Clamps and reeving blocks

The screw and anchor clamps from GANTNER are applied for assembly and maintenance works of large material ropeways in combination with tensioning clamp sets, but also as classical anchor clamp. Generally, the clamps are produced with a trapezoidal rope rest which enables the use of several rope diameters.

The reeving blocks from GANTNER are employed for ropeanchoring and revision works of gondola lifts. The reeving blocks are offered by GANTNER in several versions with diverse numbers of pulleys – depending on the requested payload. It is an individual article. Normally, two reeving blocks are applied for anchoring works.

Track Rope Tensioning Tools

Tensioning clamp sets from GANTNER are used for the anchor¬ing of track ropes of large material ropeways and heavy-load cable cranes. Depending on the payload which shall be reached diverse sets or combinations of single parts of sets are offered.

A tensioning clamp set consists of a assembly clamp, pulley blocks or shear tensions and one anchor clamp (one- or two-piece). Due to the assembly clamp of a tensioning clamp set it is possible to pin the track rope by means of the shear tensions and fix it with the anchor clamp. It disposes of a fastening strap for the pulley block and bollards for the main tension. Generally grommet slings that are fixed at the anchor are mounted on these bollards, while for smaller material ropeways even anchor ropes are applied.

The assembly and anchor clamps of the tensioning clamp sets disposes as a rule of a round rope rest – specifically for a rope diameter, which is particularly sparing for fully locked wire ropes.
