Steel wire rope FAQ's
Q: I have never ordered Steel Wire Rope before...... what does 1x19, 7x7 7x19 mean?
1x19, 7x7, 7x19, 6x19FC etc is the strand, this simply means how the steel cable has been wound. This gives the steel wire rope different and unique characteristics. The more strands in the wire rope overall diameter will make it more flexible, the lesser amount of strands will make it more stiffer
1x19 is stiff in diameters over 3mm - made of 19 individual strands so this makes it ideal for straight runs such as balustrades
7x7 is flexible in diameters upto 4mm, it is made up of 7 main strands and each of these 7 strands is made up of 7 smaller strands (49 small strands in total), this makes 7x7 a medium flexible steel wire rope, it is flexible in 1mm, 1,5mm, 2mm, 2.5mm and 3mm diameter, 4mm diameter upwards in a 7x7 strand does get a little stiffer. This is a general use wire rope. 7x7 can be turned back on itself easily to make loops using our steel wire rope grips in diameters 1-4mm
7x19 is flexible, it is made up of 7 main strands but each of the 7 main strands is made up of 19 smaller strands (133 small strands in total) making the wire rope very flexible in all diameters. It is ideal for winches, pulleys and any application where you want general flexibilty in your steel wire rope. Most steel wire rope strands we sell over 5mm diameter is usually a 7x19 as 7x7 and 1x19 stranded steel wire ropes are very difficult to work as the diameter increases. 7x19 steel wire rope can easily be turned back on itself in all diameters
6x19 Fiber Core is very flexible, it has a fiberous core which makes this wire extra pliable and is commonly used as winch cable or any application where your steel wire rope has to run over pulleys
Q: Is the diameter the overall diameter regardless of 7x7, 7x19, 1x19 or any other strand?
Yes, regardless of the strand you decide to go with the diameter is the overall diameter
eg. 2mm 7x7 galvanised steel wire - 7x7 strand means the wire has 7 main strands and each strand is made from 7 smaller strands. (the overall diameter is 2mm)
Q: How does the price per meter listing work?
We will reel the exact length you require.... for example, if you enter '200' into the quantity box we will send you a 200 meter continuous linear length - simple!
