There are a few things you need to know about this wire rope before deciding whether it is right for you. First and foremost the load limits that are placed upon this 42mm product need to be considered. Capacities vary according to the core that is used and the rating of the steel, so check the technical data carefully.
The fibre core example of this 6x36 rope allows for lifting of up to 116,305kg. Meanwhile the steel wire core equivalent, which is stronger but not as flexible, has a WLL of over 125 tonnes.
The long life span that can be expected of this rope is not just down to the configuration of the strands and the core material; it is also related to the galvanization process which has been applied to the exterior of the wire.
Galvanisation makes it much harder for corrosion to form and should stop the onset of rust, even in use cases where moisture is unavoidably present in the environment.
