Half Lock Coil, X-Lock is a non-rotating, low stretch, high strength rope that is designed for use as a guide rope in deep mine shafts. The smooth and closed outer surface reduces friction and increases resistance to the ingress of dirt particles.
HLC X-Lock’s unique structure, with interlocking X and O profile wires, provides a smooth outer surface that reduces friction and is resistant to the ingress of damaging dust and debris particles.
The non-rotating structure of HLC X-Lock make installation straightforward.
Our engineers strive continuously to optimise performance and operating efficiencies, reduce costs and extend service life.
High ductility wires minimise the occurrence of internal wire breaks, improving performance and extending service life.
Every demanding situation requires a rope with specific performance characteristics. The following properties are a key feature of Half Lock Coil, X-Lock.
The properties and values illustrated for each rope are our standard specifications. Bespoke options and adaptations can be manufactured on request.
The outer layer of interconnecting X and O profile wires give the HLC, X-Lock rope an extremely smooth outer surface that is designed for use as a guide rope for skips and cages in deep mine shafts.
