Is an Elevator Cable Bulletproof?

  • With some real tension that cable for sure will snap.

  • Yeah a 9mm would probably not cut through that cable but like Mason JAR said with the tension it would probably brake with the heavier rounds

  • think tension on the cable would've made a noticeable difference. a safe with bricks or concrete at the bottom trying to be lifted with a vehicle would've done that

  • The problem with this is that during an elevator case tension tends to pull the wire thus it is much easier to cut it.

  • I work with these cables and they typically have 2 on normal elevators but just one of these cables can support more than the entire elevators weight ive seen these break at upwards of 260,000 pounds under tension

  • Not that I think a bullet would cut a cable, but I work on elevators a cable for a 20 story building would probably only be a third of the thickness of the one that you have. But it'll have typically atleast 4 if not more cables.

  • These cables are way way over designed. One of those strands can hold the weight of the elevator but still they twisted 7 of those together just in case. Not to mention, there's usually 3 such independent cables on a cab. No single bullet can break an elevator cable and drop it.

  • I knew from the moment I saw the setup that people would be whining about the lack of tension. Thing is, unless you got a lot of the individual cable fibers to part, it wouldn't matter. Anything that people's lives depend on has to be made with a huge safety margin. I wouldn't be surprised if you could cut 2/3 or more of those fibers, maybe even as many as 4/5, before it would actually drop the car. That being the case, unless the round actually cuts at least half of the fibers in the cable, I would say it failed and that round isn't worth testing under tension.

  • The cable needs tension. If a material doesn’t have tension to it and it’s being shot, the kinetic force coming from the impact of the bullet allows the cable to move around since it has no tension and allows the kinetic energy from the impact to flow through the cable and transferring it through the object. If it had tension, the cable would have the kinetic energy from the impact of the bullet to transfer most of the energy to one area of the cable instead of allowing it to travel freely in the object. I believe so.

  • Mystery solved: The elevator was rigged at the bottom with a lot of explosives that's mass overwhelmed the cables and it couldn't hold the load and the bullet's hit was the last stressfactor to break it. Nothing to see here.

  • Not saying a 9mm could cut it, but you're not accounting for tension, that cable is taking the weight of an elevator and your test is just the cable hanging from a tree.

  • The reason why it worked in the movie is because number one it’s a movie and Number two the cable was holding up a elevator which is pulling the cable which is making the middle weaker
