RS PRO Catenary Wire Rope

The Wire Rope history was established in the 19th century, which means it is well-known and in everyday use by many professionals worldwide. The Steel Wire Rope is typically made up of several strands of metal twisted together. When the strands are closed over a central core, we are in the discovery of producing a rope. It provides a sturdy means for lifting and lowering loads reliably and safely. Several different sizes of Wires offer support to users in terms of maximum corrosion protection and excellent resistance to abrasion. Wire Cables provide flexibility for many construction projects that are essential to run your business. We are proudly introducing our won branded RS PRO Catenary Wire Rope with safe working load of 220 kg. These wires and ropes are not suitable for general lifting use as the primary intention are to secure and support applications. For lifting slings and chains, see a range of Straps, Slings and Chains within this section. Our Steel Wires have their recognition in demanding conditions and conform to all RoHS compliant.

Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between Cable and Wire Rope?

The general rule is that if the Wire Ropes diameters are more substantial then 3/8 inch (9.525 mm) the classification set it as a Wire Rope, but if it is lower than 3/8 inch we are dealing with a Cable or Cords.

What should I consider when selecting/buying Wire Cable?

1. Check the Strength parameters
2. Verify what the resistance is
3. What is the bendability
4. Determine the resistance to crushing and metal loss & deformation along with resistance to rotation and corrosion
