6×12 Fibre Core Galvanised Steel Wire Rope

Looking for a strong but flexible wire rope suitable for a wide range of applications? Our 6×12 fibre core galvanised steel wire rope is a high tensile strength cable, ideal for lashing or towing rope and is typically used on cargo ships to tie down and secure loads. Due to being made from galvanised steel, it is ideal for marine conditions and its anti-corrosive properties ensure a guaranteed long lifespan.

6×12 Fibre Core Galvanised Steel Wire Rope – for increased flexibility and higher breaking strength

6x12 fibre core galvanised steel wire rope6 x 12 fibre core construction rope contains 6 strands each made up of 12 wires. It’s fibre core gives it added flexibility and a dramatically higher breaking strength than ropes of equivalent measurements (e.g. manila).

Other uses for 6 x 12 rope include towboat rope and floating transportation of wood or bundling. As this rope has a breaking force factor of  K=0.209 we would not recommend using this rope for heavy lifting, overhead lifting or pulling. You should also avoid using this rope for applications that require high breaking strength and crush resistance.
