Although it is a wire rope by name, it is arguably has a lot more in common with fibre equivalents. This is because as well as sporting a bend-friendly fibre core, it has bundles that are externally covered by galvanized steel strands but internally constructed using yet more fibre.
The 6x12 setup of this rope and its half-centimetre diameter means that it has a lower breaking force rating and a limited ability to withstand pressures applied to its surface. Thankfully in its intended use as a load restraint on cargo ships and other maritime contexts, this should not be an issue.
Galvanized to prevent rust forming and prolong its lifespan, it offers similar advantages to stainless steel rope.
Building bespoke wire rope assemblies is second nature to Rope Services Direct. Even if you only need a simple length of 6x12 galvanized rope as a replacement for an outgoing rope, our well stocked line up of fittings will ensure we can create exactly what you need on the fly.
