A standard 6x26 galvanized wire rope construction provides the best wire rope for a wide range of applications. The 6x26 offers a high level of resistance to abrasion, and features a compact construction with solid support for the wires—which also provides a high resistance to crushing. Its number and relative size of the inner wires adds to both the stability of the strand and the resulting fatigue resistance.
This rope’s core is its own wire rope construction—known as IWRC (Independent Wire Rope Core)—meaning it moves independent to the outer strands.
Galvanized wire rope (steel) features a compressed zinc coating for providing excellent corrosion resistance. With higher break strength, yet lower price than stainless steel, galvanized steel wire rope is widely used in general engineering applications such as winches and security ropes.
The 6x26 wire rope class is made up of six strands of 26 wires per strand for additional wire rope strength and durability. The 6x26 features IPS (Improved Plowed Steel), EIPS (Extra Improved Plowed Steel), or EEIPS (Extra Extra Improved Plowed Steel) grade wire rope. Also available in USA-made.
