FibreMax's innovative cables deliver exceptional performance and reliability in all offshore crane applications, outclassing traditional steel alternatives in every aspect. Their lightweight design, corrosion resistance, and customizability make them the ideal solution for cranes operating in challenging offshore environments.

Dramatic Weight Reduction with FibreMax Cables

Offshore cranes require optimal weight distribution to ensure safe and efficient operation. FibreMax's lightweight crane pendants offer a significant weight reduction of up to 80% compared to steel plates and wire rope pendants. This leads to improved lifting capacity, easier transportation, and simplified construction, making FibreMax the superior choice for all offshore crane applications.

Maintenance-Free, Corrosion-Resistant, and Lightweight

FibreMax's corrosion-free crane pendants eliminate the need for maintenance and minimize the risk of damage to the crane's paint and other components. The heavy-duty chafe cover, available in customizable colors, provides additional protection for the cables.

Customization and Adaptability for Offshore Applications

FibreMax's cutting-edge production process allows for customization of crane pendants to meet the unique needs of each offshore crane application. The cables can be tailored to any break load, diameter, and length, ensuring they are compatible with a wide range of offshore cranes, including:

  • Floating cranes
  • Harbour cranes
  • Board offshore cranes
  • Offshore heavy lift cranes
  • And many more
