With six bundles of seven galvanised steel strands on the outside and a core created using tough yet flexible fibres beneath, there is a lot going on beneath the unassuming surface of this 1.5mm rope.
Choose from a number of different steel grades and get load capacities of between 120kg and 149kg. The SWL will be according to the product you pick. Each has its own breaking force to take into account alongside the WLL, so delve into the data yourself or ask our team for guidance.
Wire rope with this 6x7 configuration poses an interesting conundrum for buyers; the arrangement of the strands means that the outer surface is relatively smooth. Its unlikely to cause abrasions, yet the diameter has a greater effect on the flexibility. In the case of this 1.5mm example, this is less of a concern, although its comparatively restricted fatigue resistance when compared with other wire rope is worth remembering.
