What is the elongation of Dynamica FORTUNA?

Dynamica FORTUNA have low elongation similar to steel while being a safer alternative.

In case of rupture, FORTUNA's low mass and elongation results in the energy being distributed along the rope’s entire length in a linear way with a relatively low recoil. This makes them a safe alternative to steel, as you do not endanger riggers and equipment.

Is Dynamica FORTUNA rotation free?

Yes, Dynamica FORTUNA has a torque-neutral construction which means that “snaking”, bird caging and kinking is not an issue, which is a common problem with steel wire ropes.

Do & don’t

Do not use the Dynamica FORTUNA over rusty surfaces or sharp edges. This will cause cuts, abrasion abuse and splice damages.

To attain long service life and protect the riggers, ensure all surfaces are in proper condition.

How to cover & protect FORTUNA ropes?

Want longer service life? Protect your rope with a cover!

We recommend using a cover (braided or woven) in the eyes, bearing points and, for some operations, on rope’s entire length.

Dynamica FORTUNA is most often paired with braided polyester or Dynamica PRO cover.

We will assist you in choosing the right cover for your FORTUNA rope.

What to look for while inspecting Dynamica FORTUNA?

Regular inspections ensure a long service life and keep the total cost of ownership down. Inspect FORTUNA before every operation looking for the following signs:

  • Rope construction damage

  • Cover damage

  • Abrasion

  • Inconsistent diameter
