4 List of hazards

This clause contains hazards and hazardous situations, as far as they are dealt with in this document,

identified by risk assessment as significant for solid thimbles and which require action to eliminate or

reduce the risk.

Accidental release of a load due to failure of the solid thimble directly or indirectly endangers the life or

health of those persons within the danger zone.

In order to exhibit the required strength and endurance, this document specifies requirements for the

design, manufacture and testing of solid thimbles, to ensure that the required level of performance is

obtained.

Assembly faults can also lead to premature failure. This document contains requirements regarding the

dimensions enabling the correct assembly.

The following hazardous events according to EN ISO 12100:2010, B.4, that are recognized as being typical

for solid thimbles for general purposes, are covered by this document:

— contact with rough surfaces, sharp edges and corners as well as protruding parts, the origin of which

relates to the shape and/or superficial finishing;

— break-up during operation, the origin of which relates to the mechanical strength, which can result

in hazard to hand and/or falling parts.
5 Safety requirements and/or protective measures
5.1 Material

The material used to manufacture the thimbles shall be steel according to EN 10025, cast steel according

to EN 10293 or EN 10340, respectively, malleable cast iron according to EN 1562 or spheroidal graphite

cast iron according to EN 1563.
Hot-dip galvanized zinc coatings shall be applied according to EN ISO 1461.
5.2 Design

Solid thimbles shall be free of cracks, surface defects and sharp edges, which may compromise the

stability of the solid thimble or damage the rope.

EN 13411-9:2021 (E)
5.3 Type testing
5.3.1 General

A type test consisting of a tensile test according to 5.3.3 and a fatigue test according to 5.3.4 shall verify

that the design, material and manufacturing process of the solid thimble with the dimensions specified in

Annex A can resist the maximum loads that are expected under normal operating conditions.

Each modification, e.g. of the material, the manufacturing process or dimensions, that is likely to

compromise the safety of the solid thimble, requires type testing of the modified solid thimble according

to 6.2.

For type testing, maximum permissible diameter of each bore diameter and the minimum thickness

between the root of the groove and the bore for which the thimble is designed, shall be used.

The bolt clearance for type testing of the solid thimble should be less than or equal to 10 % of the bore

diameter, but should not exceed 3mm.
5.3.2 Sampling

Where the solid thimble design follows a mathematical progression throughout a given size range, rope

diameter within that range for which the system is d
