Wrong coiling can cause serious damage to the steel wire rope. Coil or wind according to the following:
- Reels should be rolled out or alternatively placed on a turnable centre.
- Cross reels and drums should be placed on a shaft that allows it to rotate.
- Wind and unwind the rope in the same direction.
- In some cases it may be necessary to brake the drum.
WARNING!Wrong "opening" of packing can cause serious injury to personnel, first ensure that the rope is under control.
Never pull a rope from a stationary reel or drum - due to the risk of kinking.
