3.2mm Coated Marine Grade Stainless Steel Wire Rope.  This diameter of Stainless Steel Wire Rope is most often used in Balustrade Constructions. 7×7 and 7×19 wire structures are best suited for use in mechanically swaged fittings, whereas 1×19 is best suited for use in hydraulically swaged fittings.

3.2mm Coated Stainless Steel Wire Rope

The 3.2mm Coated Stainless Steel Wire Rope – regardless of structure – is considered to have relatively low  flexibility making it easy to work with and has virtually no stretch coefficient.

Our international supplier is dedicated to high carbon wire and rope manufacturing. 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…

Three common wire strand constructions are:

  • 1×19 which indicates 19 thin wires twisted together in a silky smooth finish. This total of 19 individual wires are twisted together in constructing a single strand of our premium wire. This is the least flexible wire structure and the easiest to keep clean.
  • 7×7 which indicates a collection of 49 individual wires which are grouped as 7 substrands of 7 wires each – twisted together to form a single strand. This is a medium flexibility wire and is considered ‘general purpose’ and offers an economical approach.
  • 7×19 which indicates a collection of 133 individual wires which are grouped as 7 substrands of 19 wires each –
    twisted together (could be used for ballustrading but is mainly used on cranes and winches where the highest flexibility is required and the maximum stretch co-efficient can be accommodated).

…Simply put, the more wires that are twisted to make a strand, the more flexible the strand of wire becomes.


  • Quality: Marine AISI Grade: 316
  • Lay: Right Hand
  • Swaging Method: Hydraulic or Manual
  • Wire Structure: 7×7
  • Diameter of Wire: 3.2mm
  • Outer Diameter: Variable with Coating

Application & Use

  • 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)
  • Terminal Loops are formed with Mechanical fastening or manual swaging.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). This is best limited to 7×7 and 7×19 structures
  • Mechanical fastening is done with Wire Rope Grips (Bulldog Grips) Low Cost Wire does not  recommend this approach.  However, if you choose it we recommend  using three per terminal loop for safety purposes and this is best limited to 7×7 and 7×19 structures.
  • Manual swaging is done using Ferrules (or crimps or hand swages) must be Nickel Coated Copper to avoid
    catastrophic swaging failure (aluminium swages WILL corrode  the wire).  A Manual All-in-1 swaging tool is  recommended. This is best limited to 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. 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. This is best applied to 1×19 although it will work with 7×7 and 7×19 structures
