Company profile

The company Polskie Liny Sp. z o.o. (Polish Ropes Ltd.) produces ropes and wires in a factory, whose tradition goes back to 1881. It is interesting that our factory (formerly: A. Deichsel S.A. in Sosnowiec) produced at the beginning of September 1935 all carrying ropes and catlines for Cabin Aerial Ropeway “Kasprowy Wierch” – the first such ropeway in Poland. Such ropes were produced for the first time in our country.

Production of those ropes was supervised by the Lviv Polytechnic National University. And engineers of Ministry of Communication were in charge of the ropeway construction work.

12 steel wire ropes were produced in the factory in Sosnowiec, including:

  • four carrying lock coil ropes; two of diameter D=45 mm, length L=2110 m and two ropes of diameter D=48 mm, length L=2410 m,
  • six lang-lay ropes; among them two haulage ropes, the first of diameter D=21 mm, the second of diameter D=19 mm, and two counterweight ropes, the first of diameter D=19 mm, the second of diameter D=17 mm, and two catlines, the first of diameter D=17 mm, the second of diameter D=16 mm,
  • two stretching triangular ropes, the first of diameter D=41 mm, length L=50 m and the second of diameter D=55 mm, length L=58 m.

All ropes for the ropeway were manufactured by the company “Deichsel” in Sosnowiec within three months.
