Innovative Technologies
For Land based and Offshore Cranes

On long boom cranes, weight is essential, whereby typically, cranes are equipped with heavy steel plates or steel wire rope pendants. Using lightweight crane pendants, such as our FibreMax cables, a significant weight reduction of 80 per cent over steel can be achieved.

Also, offshore cranes depend on weights. The standardly equipped heavy steel plates cause a more challenging construction and increased weight on the cranes’ location. FibreMax also has for these application lightweight crane pendants to prevent unnecessary complications regarding weight, transportation and construction.

Corrosion-free and lightweight crane pendants

Our FibreMax crane pendants are corrosion-free and do not require maintenance. Since our pendants are lightweight, no potential damage to the paint on the booms or other crane parts will be caused. All crane pendants from FibreMax are protected by a heavy-duty chafe cover, standardly coloured black. Upon your request, the colour of the covers can be adjusted.

Our lightweight crane pendants are available in any break load, diameter and length. With the help of our highly automated and innovative production process, customization and adaptation to your needs and requirements are standardized.
