Dr.-Ing. Michael Molkow

Monday 1st May 2000

The European Lift Rope Draft Standard as well as the recently established ISO work Item NP 4344 of ISO TC 105 WG 3 is covered. The valid ISO Standard 4344 does not even mention some of the most essential barriers against a real International Standard, as there are inch-metric sizes, modern rope constructions and very different tensile strength grade ideas throughout the respective national elevator industries. These and other fields of problems, solved and still not solved ones are presented and the logic behind dome of the proposed solutions is described.
