Light to Medium Duty Cable Socks

Our light to mid-duty cable socks can be selected in a variety of specifications. This allows you to pick the exact length, diameter and weave type to fit in with your needs.

These socks will be capable of handling various safe load limits. Starting at around 700kg and rising to over seven tonnes. Be sure to order the right type of sock, as otherwise you might fall foul of lifting regulations.

Heavy Duty Cable Socks

With the heavy duty wire rope socks we sell, you can find sturdier assemblies. These have multi-weave lattice layouts that allow for might greater load capacities. These range from around three tonnes to more than 22 tonnes, allowing you to position and manoeuvre rope wires into position more easily, no matter how much weight it needs to bear.

These socks are used across a surprising variety of different industries, including oil, mining and telecommunications. For uncompromising performance and unquestioned resilience, the heavy duty weave is your best option.

Non-Metallic Cable Socks

Manufactured from steel wire these socks are obviously not ideal in every scenario. This is especially so when electrical currents or combustible substances are present in close proximity. To this end we manufacture non-metallic wire rope socks that are still hard-wearing, flexible and versatile.

Single and double weave versions are available, with different size ranges on offer and a single eye fitting typically found at the end.

A non-metallic wire rope sock will have the added benefit of being resistant to corrosion caused by exposure to moisture in the environment, or even as a result of direct immersion in water.
