Steel Wire Ropes

The use of wire rope is widespread within the lifting and rigging industries worldwide. Each wire rope is constructed of several steel strands laid or twisted together similarly to a Helix, each strand consists of smaller wires laid together in a similar way.

Every wire rope has three basic components, wires, strands and the core. The core may comprise of either Fibre (FC) such as sisal, manila or jute, or an Independent Wire Rope Core (IWRC), which is actually a smaller wire rope within the strands of the outer wire rope. The wires are predominantly constructed from high-carbon steel, but may also be formed from various metals such as Iron, Stainless Steel, Monel or bronze.

Carbon steel wire rope is manufactured in various grades, including Improved PlowSteel (IPS), Extra Improved Plow Steel (EIPS) and Extra Extra Improved Plow Steel (EEIPS), which designate the nominal strength of the wire rope.
