3.0mm Stainless Steel Wire Rope

$0.87$278.03 Includes GST

3.0mm Marine Grade Stainless Steel Wire Rope.  This diameter of Stainless Steel Wire Rope is most often used in Balustrade Constructions. 7×7 wire structure is suited for use in both mechanically swaged fittings and in hydraulically swaged fittings. 1×19 is preferred with Hydraulically swaged fittings.

Lengths of wire less than 100M are cut and labelled as a coil. Lengths of 150M and above are (generally) delivered on a reel however, small lengths can be put on a drum for a small additional cost (please refer to our Reeling Service

3.0mm Stainless Steel Wire Rope

This
is super easy to use wire for the DIY guy who wants that economical balustrading – used by both Professionals and DIY’s, it is excellent with all fittings however, it is NOT recommended for coastal or marine applications. Other uses extend to:

  • Picture (statue?)  Hanging
  • Shop Fitting
  • Shade Sails
  • Trellis structuring
  • ‘Green Wall’ construction
  • Rigging
  • Slings
  • Stage Light Infrastructure
  • Stage Curtains
  • Prop Construction

…and it works with GRIPPLE and Fastlink fasteners as an added bonus…

This is considered a flexible wire making it easy to work with and has virtually no stretch coefficient. Its ease of use makes it excellent for use with Thimble and Ferrule fittings as well as hydraulically swaged fittings.

Please use the combinations of the offered lengths to get the total length for which you search.

E.G. – choose a quantity of “8” of the 10M length to select a single length of 80 Metres.

All quantities of Wire Rope are cut and shipped as a single length unless otherwise specifically ordered with a ‘cut to length’ service. (additional charge per length of wire to cut to a measurement, coil, label, and wrap separately – see our services section on this website).

Our international supplier Mill Certifies their wire rope. And their long experience of wire and rope manufacturing enables them to design and manufacture wire and rope with optimal balance between high tensile strength, fatigue resistance, abrasion resistance, and structural stability. The added bonus is that they provide a special treatment for bright and smooth surface of wire and cable to deliver a truly top-shelf, long lasting product that will look new for ages…

Wire Structure:

Three common wire strand constructions are:

  • 1×19 indicates 19 thin wires twisted together in a silky and therefore smooth finish. Consequently, 19 individual wires twisted together construct a single strand of our premium wire. This is the least flexible wire structure. As a result, it is the easiest to keep clean.
  • 7×7 indicates a collection of 49 individual wires grouped as 7 sub-strands of 7 wires each. Consequently, 7 wire bundles twisted together form a single strand. This is more (medium) flexible wire than 1×19. As a result, it is for ‘general purpose’ applications and is most economical because it is commonly available.
  • 7×19 indicates a collection of 133 individual wires grouped as 7 sub-strands of 19 wires each. Consequently, 7 wire bundles of 19 wires twisted together form a single strand. This is our most flexible wire for use in rigging or small cranes or winches rather than balustrade construction. Low Cost Wire does not recommend 7×19 wire for balustrade construction.

…In conclusion, the more wires twisted to make a strand, the more flexible is the strand of wire because it deforms/bends without damage.

Specifications:

  • Quality: Marine AISI Grade: 316
  • Lay: Right Hand
  • Swaging Method: Hydraulic or Manual
  • Wire Structure: 1×19, 7×19, 7×7
  • Diameter of Wire: 3.2mm

Application & Use

  • First of all, this wire may be mechanically – fastened or manually or hydraulically swaged.
  • Cutting of the wire is best done using Parrot Beak cutters (collapsing trapezoidal design) rather than shears or a grinder.
  • Terminal Loops are formed with Mechanical fastening or manual swaging. In addition, terminal loops must use stainless steel thimbles (eyelets) to retain the strength of the wire by distributing the load along the entire length of wire in the terminal loop (available here). Recommended for only 7×7 and 7×19 structures
  • Mechanical fastening is done with Wire Rope Grips (Bulldog Grips) Low Cost Wire does not recommend this approach. Industry practice is three per terminal loop for safety purposes. This only suits 7×7 and 7×19 structures.
  • Manual swaging is done using Ferrules (or crimps or hand swages) rather than Wire Rope Grips. Nickel Coated Copper is used instead of Aluminum because matching alloys is important. As a result, catastrophic swaging failure will not occur. Aluminium swages WILL cause a dissimilar alloys reaction and as a result corrode the Stainless Steel wire. Low Cost Wire strongly recommends an All-in-1 swaging tool. Recommended for only 7×7 and 7×19 structures
  • Hydraulic swaging is done using a hydraulic press either bench mounted or hand held. Hydraulic swaging for architectural purposes may economically use a Professional Hydraulic Swaging Tool while remaining work safe. These tools generate pressure ‘spot’ welds. Low Cost Wire strongly recommends that hydraulic swaging for lifting and marine applications use a bench mounted hydraulic press which can generate pressure ‘seam’ welds. Recommended for 1×19. (works with 7×7 and 7×19 structures).
