Historically, a wire rope has been used to winch the glider into the air. This is often the source of injuries - metal splinters or splinters can cause hand injuries that take a long time to heal. The recoil effect of a rope break is a major threat not only to property but also to life. The SKY Lift rope can easily replace a torn steel rope and give a feeling of safety. The rope stands out for its high strength and low weight. In the event of a break, it poses no danger to the crew, bystanders or other machines in the vicinity.
Winding the SKY Lift rope on a drum or winch on which steel rope was originally used is possible, but it is important to thoroughly clean these devices of any sharp metal splinters first.
