About Catenary Wire

There are many instances where you may need various types of wire, cable or supporting instruments running overhead. Applications suitable for this wire include Christmas lighting and other religious displays. Laying decorations, heavy curtain hanging, festoons and the suspending of power cables, particularly at pop concerts and theatre productions. The safety of overhead electrical cables is paramount.

The use of a catenary wire is basically for supporting cables and keeping them out of the way.  The benefit for this is that it takes the strain off the hanging cables themselves.

Galvanized Catenary Cable and stainless steel catenary wire differences

As you may have noted earlier, we stock catenary wire in both galvanized steel and stainless steel options. Here we want to briefly explain the difference between the two.

The difference with the galvanized version is that it will have a protective zinc coating applied to the wire. This zinc helps to protect the wire rope from corrosion or rust. It is worth noting that the stainless steel version will already have natural resistance to this. However it can be useful to consider a zinc coating if your equipment will be used heavily outdoors.

We find that often clients will regularly be using this equipment outdoors. Due to its popular usage for supporting cables along structures such as train tracks.

If you are unsure which would be the best type for your operation get in touch.

Both of our ranges are made from high grade steel. They can be used safely in many internal and external environments. We are also able to provide this product in a range of sizes, cut to your exact lengths and specifications.
