Engineering and Statics
Our engineering team is highly trained and very experienced in designing custom solutions with cables and wire meshes. We offer engineering services for challenging structures, including:
- Defining shapes of rope and net structures
- Calculation of support forces
- Calculation of loads.
- Developing of made to measure items for given rope and net structures
For more than 110 years, Jakob Rope Systems produces ropes and cables. Through innovation and creativity, we now manufacture and develop modern stainless steel and fibre ropes, gaining recognition all over the world.
We offer made to measure production with highest quality standards and are continuously developing our products. Our aim is to bring safety, aesthetics and durability together in all our products. Be it standardised or custom made products, we deliver the best solutions for the architectural sector, construction and forest industry, as well as ski-lifts and mountain railways.
Installation and Maintenance
Our skilled and experienced technicians coordinate and supervise the installation of complex rope and net structures all over the world. Using the most modern equipment, the Jakob technicians deliver precision work. The installation teams can be supplemented as desired by local workers. Our specialists are happy to pass on their knowledge and experience in this manner.
Monitoring and Testing
Even ropes and cables of the highest quality need controls at regular intervals. This helps to detect damages at an early stage, contributes to prolong the life cycle of the products and thereby minimises operating costs.
For the lifting and hoisting sector, we offer regular safety checks of lifting accessories, safety nets and fibre nets on site and in our facilities with precision instruments. Cable car operators can rely on our support for regular checks and maintenance works such as splicing. And architects and builders enjoy continuous support well after the final installation of their structure.
