Do cables become longer in hanging applications?

Yes, theoretically. However, this effect is irrelevant and can readily be ignored. It is much more important that the tensile force acting on cables in vertical and hanging applications does not exceed a maximum level. The maximum permissible tensile force for standard cables is 15N/mm² cross section of the main cores.

Due to a special structure with carrier elements, much higher loads can be achieved.
