Stainless Steel Wire and ropes also have fibre cores. Fibre core ropes were traditionally made with sisal rope, but may also use plastic materials. The fibres core ropes have less strength than steel core ropes. fibre core ropes are quite flexible and are used in many overhead crane applications.
The lay of a wire rope is the direction that the wire strands and the strands in the cable twist. There are four common lays: right lay, left lay, regular lay and lang lay.
Stainless Steel Wire Ropes are an important part of our core product range. Providing high quality materials is an extremely important part of our ethos which is why our stainless steel wire ropes are produced to international standards by one of the leading stainless steel wire rope manufacturers in the world. Our ropes are used in demanding conditions and it is therefore vital that the tolerance and chemical composition of the material is superior.
