Notification Regarding Rope Kits

Please be aware that we are changing G.Stop and G.Saver rope kits' codes, effective 18/10/21. With this change the rope kit range has been reduced and consolidated with a new code system. In addition, we have introduced the ‘Mark’ system to simplify which era unit a rope kit belongs to.

This change is being undertaken because the existing rope kit labelling system has become overly complex and convoluted, making ordering spares difficult for service agents.

The new codes will look like this:

 

To make things simple, the new code will begin with RK, to denote ‘Rope Kit’. This will be followed by the first letter of the material of the wire rope, which will be either G (galvanised steel) or S (stainless steel), as shown above in green.

Following that, a number is used (shown in red) to indicate the wire diameter in mm. Following that there is a 2 digit number depicting the rope length in metres, as shown in purple. The total number of rope lengths we provide as standard has now been reduced.

Hyphenated at the end of the code is the mark number, as shown in orange. This is used to distinguish which rope guide will be present on the kit. Different guides have been used over the years and are not interchangeable. The mark number of a unit can be found using the serial number checker on the Globestock website (note, the mark is also referred to as the 'model').

So, the example code above is a rope kit with 5mm galvanised cable, 14m in length, for a mark 3 G.Stop/G.Saver.

The above change will come into effect on 18/10/21.  If you have any questions in the meantime, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

NOTIFICATION: RETIREMENT OF UNITS

Please be advised that the units specified below are being retired from service. They will no longer be certifiable from 09/09/21 due to their diminishing circulation.

This means that Globestock and our service agents will not be able to service these particular units after the above date. The change will not affect the majority of Globestock service agents because most of these units will have been retired from service already.

However, due to the durability of these products, please be aware that a few units are still in circulation. We have identified some end users who still deploy these older units; those customers will be notified of the retirement very soon.

For retired units possessing certification that expires after the retirement date, existing certificates will remain valid until expired.

Please note that pre-CE G.winches are being retired from service. If a G.Winch unit carries a CE mark, it is still in service and will not yet be retired.

Please use the PDF document or our Serial Number Checker Tool, to confirm whether certain units are affected (buttons below):
