Neither fibre will rot or degrade over time. They will not absorb moisture from the atmosphere which can change the characteristics of some cords. Less than 1% stretch carrying a 15kg frame. Our low-stretch cords range has five load variations in white, for frames from 22kg up to 84kg. As is normal engineering practice, the safe working loads quoted, SWL, are approx.
25% of the manufacturers tested failure load so if the frame is a bit heavier than expected or there is an occasional'shock' loading, there is a big margin for error. Hints for safer and reliable picture hanging. Select the correct cord and practice tying secure knots. Use suitable hangers on the frame such as one-hole or two-hole D Rings.
Suggest to customers that for larger frames, they hang them on two hooks spaced apart. This spreads the load and makes the frame more stable. Bumpers on the bottom corners help stability.1 - 89kg Breaking Strain - Maximum suggested picture weight 22kg. 2 - 150kg Breaking Strain - Maximum suggested picture weight 38kg. 3 - 184kg Breaking Strain - Maximum suggested picture weight 46kg. 4 - 209kg Breaking Strain - Maximum suggested picture weight 52kg. 5 - 337kg Breaking Strain - Maximum suggested picture weight 84kg.
