The load up to which it is safe to use the lineGrip in a given scenario.
Note: does not translate to the industry standard SWL, which is linked to a devices safety factor.
We use SWL in correspondence to EWL, because it's a well known term that is commonly associated correctly with the load at which a device may be used.
The lineGrip's maximum permissible load.
Designated on the clamping plate as "MAX LOAD".
The load at which a lineGrip will typically begin to slip on the webbing.
Note: This load should never be reached!
It is not permissible to exceed the MWL under any circumstance!
The minimum load at which a lineGrip typically fails (breaks).
The weakest part of a lineGrip are the pivot points of the levers (the pegs on the stationary clamping plate).
The strongest part of a lineGrip is the load bracket, which typically withstands 90kN for the G4 and 50kN for the HLG model.
The condition your lineGrip is in under the current load at the current temperature.
This can be "Safe", "Caution", "Danger", or "Forbidden".
The safe working load limit at the current temperature.
At high temperature this can be significantly less, than the MWL of your lineGrip.
The safe working load limit of a lineGrip cluster (multiple linked lineGrips)
Note: This is significantly lower, than the added SWL of all the linked lineGrips.
90% SWL of the primary (front) unit of a lineGrip cluster (multiple linked lineGrips).
The BWL is used to calculate the CWL.
