More Elevator Ropes

Ran across the ropes of an atrium car that were in less-than-ideal condition.

Elevator ropes rouged and in bad conditionThese ropes were retired not because they were in visually bad condition, but because they met the criteria for rope retirement due to being undersized. As discussed in the previous post, the criteria for being labeled “undersized” was more strict due to the condition of these ropes.

This particular elevator install will spawn another blog post later as one of the motors has spewed liquid solder onto the walls of the machine room. Stay tuned for that one.
