The nature of many industries and applications has changed dramatically in recent years. The number of projects has increased tenfold. While wire rope has remained a core component of many of these applications, the changing nature of many industries has seen a need for bespoke wire rope assemblies to be utilised in many different ways.
Having bespoke products allows an operation to be completed much more efficiently by matching exact specifications. It’s rarely a “one size fits all” approach with rope. Bespoke wire rope assemblies can ensure that your operation runs as smoothly as possible.
Here you will find all of the detailed information that you need regarding our bespoke range, as well as contact details should you wish to place an order.
Bespoke Wire Rope Assemblies from Rope Services Direct
Wire rope assemblies are used all around us, probably without us even noticing. Some industries use bespoke wire rope assemblies to suit specific tasks. Such as gymnasiums, security companies, theatres, TV studios, garage door companies, transport companies, architectural suppliers, landscaping and horticulture industries and many more. Bespoke wire rope assemblies may also be used for sign hanging tasks, catenary cables and other suspension applications.
Because these assemblies are bespoke, you cannot just go and buy one. They have to be custom made to order. Rope Services Direct has the machinery and expertise to produce the majority of wire rope assemblies. We can easily customise them to suit your specific requirements.
There are many different configurations available on all wire rope assemblies. The wire rope itself is available in a vast range of dimensions and constructions and can be made up in any length you require. The fittings normally used at each end of the assembly are wide and varied. You can have the same fitting at each end or different ones, the choice is yours. Soft or thimble eyes at each end are probably the most popular type of rope assembly. We are also asked for forks, turnbuckles or just fuse and tapered ends. Eye and stud assemblies are also available, as well as wire rope assemblies with socket ends.
Some fittings are available in standard galvanised steel, others come in stainless steel, some types are available in both.
It is important to measure accurately to the specific points for a perfect fit of the wire rope assembly. When taking measurements we determine lengths at different points on different types of wire rope fittings. On eye fittings the measurement is usually taken to the centre of the eye. On forks to the centre of the pin, with thimbles, to the tip of the bearing surface and on stud fitting, to the very end. If you need your wire rope assembly made to a particular overall length then please notify us when ordering that the length is to include the fittings, end to end.

Made-to-order wire rope assemblies can be a little more complicated. Thus it will be a slightly longer process than purchasing one of our ready-made products, so that is something to bear in mind. You can see the full list of assemblies that we currently supply here.
However, should you have requirements or specifications that don’t match with what we currently have, then we would be more than happy to create a bespoke product for you. If you want to find out more about this, as well as turnaround times and payment options, please either call us on 01384 8004 or get in touch with us here.
