It may not be as able to resist crushing forces or sudden breaks as other wire rope options, but this 5mm 6×12 galvanised wire rope still has a few tricks up its sleeve that are worth bearing in mind if flexibility and resilience are important to you.
Why choose this 5mm 6×12 Galvanised Wire Rope?
Although it is a wire rope by name, it is arguably has a lot more in common with fibre equivalents. This is because as well as sporting a bend-friendly fibre core, it has bundles that are externally covered by galvanised steel strands but internally constructed using yet more fibre.
The 6×12 setup of this rope and its half-centimetre diameter means that it has a lower breaking force rating and a limited ability to withstand pressures applied to its surface. Thankfully in its intended use as a load restraint on cargo ships and other maritime contexts, this should not be an issue.
