Hold a piece of standard steel rope in one hand and a compacted equivalent in the other and you will easily be able to identify the difference between the two. The pressure applied to the latter during manufacturing makes the outer surface smoother, while allowing the wire bundles to be pushed closer together.
The result is a fatigue resistant, sturdy structure which in the case of this 13mm example can take loads of up to 16.88 tonnes in spite of being comparatively thin. It also has a 165.5kN load capacity, which should allay fears about the potential for breakages
