It is impossible to establish hard and fast recommendations regarding working loads due to the wide range of rope use, rope conditions, exposure to several factors affecting rope behavior, and the degree of risk to life and property involved. The tabulations for working loads are based on new, unused rope in excellent condition. These are only guidelines, even when having appropriate splices, and being used in non-critical applications and under normal conditions. If possible injury to people or damage to property exist, working loads should be reduced.
Never increase the working load beyond given guidelines without expert advice as to the conditions and risk involved. It must be determined that the rope is in excellent condition. Figures given as working loads are void if the rope has been subjected to dynamic loading, high temperatures, long periods of load, extreme stress, improper storage or improper use.
