Security Cable are commonly made from Wire rope which is one of the most versatile and adaptable pieces of equipment available on the market, helping dozens of industries with a range of applications. While they often enjoy heavy industrial usage, their strong nature sees them being utilised in other ways too. One such way is for tasks that require an element of security.
Rope Services Direct are able to supply security cable for a range of applications, such as securing items to lampposts, roof racks and railings whilst making them theft proof. They can also be used to secure bikes and motorcycles and to secure outdoor equipment and patio furniture – these are just a few examples!
The reason that wire rope is used so heavily for these security-dependent applications is because of its highly strong nature which is difficult to break without the correct tools /wire rope cutters. Constructed from sturdy stainless steel wires and strands and wrapped around an even sturdier inner fibre core, it has been designed with versatility in mind.
Whatever your security application, you want to be able to relax in the knowledge that your tools and equipment have been safely secured. And, better yet, security cable is lightweight and easily portable, so you won’t have to carry around heavy steel chains!
This lightweight nature also means that they can be easily wrapped and tied around whichever object it is that you are looking to secure. Some objects may be slightly more unusual in their shape and size, but wire rope security cables offer the flexibility to ensure this isn’t a problem.
PVC coating for your security cable
Security cable can be PVC coated to make them weather-proof. While stainless steel, and wire rope, already have resistant properties to corrosion and the harmful elements, continued exposure outdoors can lessen the quality of the equipment. By adding a protective PVC coating, such as the one that you will find with our plastic coated wire ropes, you’ll be adding another barrier of protection for your safety cables.
You will also find that wire rope has naturally UV resistant properties as well, another useful quality when operating in the great outdoors!
Our equipment is also available in a range of colours too. This may be suitable for you for aesthetic reasons, as perhaps you may want to choose a security cable in your favourite colour! But, it can also have other beneficial reasons too. Our black security cables are more difficult to see in certain environments, so blend in much better with the surrounding area.
Safeguarding your items
Using security cable is half the battle of protecting your items, but its important that you take good care of your equipment at all times. Be sure to regularly inspect it, as it will suffer natural wear and tear over its long service life.
Should you notice signs of damages, either internally or externally, then its important that you get in contact with us immediately so that the security of your items isn’t at risk. You can find our contact details below.
