Stainless Steel Wire Rope, Stainless Cable & Fittings
Stainless Steel Wire - Anzor stock a wide range of Stainless Steel Wire Rope (Stainless Cable) and Stainless Wire Fittings. Wire rope is a collection of small strands of wire woven together in three different patterns which offer different levels of flexibility. Commonly used for balustrades, rigging applications and foliage systems. Where wire strength is critical please check the breaking load data to ensure you are ordering the correct diameter and type. And also see the Wire Rope construction types which shows the main three main types of wire stocked by Anzor as:
Stainless Cable/Wire Rope
1/19 Stainless Steel Wire Rope (Stainless Cable)
1/19 wire rope; described as rigid wire and made of 19 strands of 1 wire woven together, which creates a very rigid wire rope unable to go round bends and has very little stretch, commonly used in swaging applications.
7/7 Stainless Steel Wire Rope (Stainless Cable)
7/7 wire rope; described as semi-flexible and made of 7 strands of 7 wires woven together creating medium flexibility, OK for going round bends and has a medium amount of stretch.
7/19 Stainless Steel Wire Rope (Stainless Cable)
7/19 wire rope; described as flexible wire and made of 7 strands of 19 wires woven together creating a very flexible wire ideal for going round bends much easier to work with than the other two options. 7/19 wire is the most commonly used wire for balustrades.
All wire rope stocked by Anzor is 316 grade however due to the nature of woven wire it is prone to tea staining without good cleaning and maintenance. All wire supplied by Anzor has load data available, and for any applications where wire strength is critical please check the breaking load data to ensure you are ordering the correct diameter and type.
Crimps/Ferrules for Stainless Steel Wire Rope (Stainless Cable)
Wire Rope Ferrules/Crimps are Copper or Nickle plated Copper sleeves available in sizes to suit all our wire rope diameters. Used with a Crimping Tool the wire is looped through (often round a thimble) the crimp and the crimp is squeezed or deformed around the wires to form an eye. Commonly used in the construction of wire balustrades.
Wire Rope Grips use a small U bolt into a specially shaped collar which can be tightened to grip wire rope serving the same purpose as a crimp. However as the rope grip uses two small hex nuts to tighten the U bolt and sandwich the rope between the collar and the inside of the curve of the U bolt, it is possible to undo the hex nuts release the pressure and remove the wire when required.
