Rope Services Direct supply a complete range of garage door cables suited to the various styles of garage door available on the UK market. Our offering includes both stainless steel and galvanised steel options.
As is common practice, garage door cables are usually supplied in pairs, to provide an even cable opening mechanism. There are also a range of end fittings available for our cables, perfect for allowing you to choose the best combination for your setup. These are designed to permanently terminate the end of your wire rope, but also to provide a great attachment suitable for garage doors.
Garage doors can come in a range of shapes and sizes and with different lifting mechanisms. Perhaps they are small doors found protecting your car at home. Or perhaps they are large, more industrial sized garage doors found on industrial work units / factories. Either way, their purpose is the same; to provide safe protection for what is inside, and to be opened with ease, and stabilised, where necessary.
The mechanism that operates the garage door, therefore, must be reliable and safe. It must not only be able to open the door in a smooth manner, but also to ensure that it doesn’t shut until the controller is ready.
This is why our garage door cables, complete with a huge option of end fittings, has become such a popular choice for many around the UK. You can read more about our fittings here, and if you need help in deciding which is the right product for you, please find our contact details at the bottom of this page.
More information on galvanised wire rope
As we discussed above, you can purchase our cables in both a stainless steel and a galvanised steel option. Galvanised wire rope is regularly used as it is usually cheaper and often comes in a wider range of sizes and diameters.
The stainless steel garage cables are more resistant to rust and therefore may offer greater longevity due to them being used in damp conditions. We recommend speaking to us first before deciding which of the products is right for you.
Keeping your Garage Door Cables in good working condition
Whether you choose the stainless steel or galvanised option, its crucial that you keep them in good working order. You need to rest easy knowing that your garage door mechanism will work smoothly, and not cause any harm when you open and close it.
Be sure to regularly inspect your equipment, looking for any signs of wear and tear, broken wires, distortion or interior corrosion. Corrosion is an important one, as many of these garages will be operating outside. While the cables are built to resist this corrosion, their resistance will gradually lessen over the years. Applying the correct wire rope lubrication periodically will help. Should you notice any problems, please get in contact with us right away.
