Rotation Resistant Wire Ropes

2160 Grade tensile in non-preferred. 1960 Grade Wire Ropes are recommended as they still provide very high breaking loads but the slightly lower tesile strength ensures an excellent service life.

19 x 7 Construction Wire are not recommended in diameters above 18mm. 35 x 7 ropes should be used above 12mm diameter.

Galvanised Strand

Galvanised Strand is commonly used for guys on communication towers, broadcasting towers, power poles and as load carrying members in building structures.
Galvanised Strand is less flexible than wire rope but its is stronger and has a higher modulus of elasticity. Galvanised Strand is furnished with a class 'A' Galvanised finish.
