The intricacy of having a wire rope made up of 6 bundles of 12 galvanized steel strands might sound compelling enough in its own right. The 14mm rope example has multiple fibre cores allowing its true benefits to become apparent.
Fibre is more flexible than steel, which in turn is stronger than fibre. By combining the two materials you get the best of both worlds; a corrosion-resistant wire rope which does not suffer from excessive rigidity, fatigue damage or fraying.
This is one of the thicker 6x12 ropes on our books, allowing a load limit of 8,184kg to be available. The ropes design means that heavy lifting applications are not ideal. Lashing down cargo is where these ropes can be utilized.
Rope Services Direct will not only manufacture a length of galvanized rope to order, but can also turn it into an assembly that serves a specific purpose. If you simply want end terminals and other fittings added, we can oblige. Our riggers will use our industrial presses to permanently press your choice of fitting or fittings onto your wire rope.
