Galvanised to fend off corrosion, our 6×12 wire rope has a complex fibre core design that delivers flexibility in spades. The 12mm diameter of this precise rope allows for solid strength and surprising versatility from an otherwise specialised product.
Important figures for 12mm 6×12 Galvanised Wire Rope
First up is the load limit, which sits at 5,430kg for the mid-range 1770 steel example and reaches 6,013kg in its 1960 counterpart.
The lower breaking force factor that defines the entire 6×12 fibre core range, along with the increased susceptibility to crushing damage, means that lifting is not recommended as a use for this 12mm rope. What can be achieved is the effective restraint of cargo, particularly in marine environments where the corrosion resistance makes a big difference to the lifespan of the product.
Matching the wire rope you order to the type of duties you expect it to handle is sensible to ensure safety and productivity. With galvanised rope this is straightforward, since each type we produce has its own page on which an explanation of its abilities and specs can be found. From 1×19 rope to 6×36 rope, the options go on and on.
