Product Description

4.0mm Black Coated 7×19 G2070 Galvanised Steel Wire Rope is nylon covered and used primarily to repair Gym Equipment Repair or light rigging.   Consequently, it is commonly referred to as ‘working wire’ as Galvanised Wire Rope will not work harden in the same way that Stainless Steel wire will over time. Usage of the wire suits fittings for 4.0mm. Tensile Strength (MBS) = ~1121.7kg


Usage: This 4.0mm Black Coated 7×19 G2070 Galvanised Steel Wire Rope has a cumulative diameter of ~5.5mm. We recommend this wire with Thimble and Ferrule fittings. Additional uses include: Picture Rail, Shop Fitting, Presentation structuring, Light Rigging, Tagging and Security Wire. The wire has virtually no stretch and high range flexibility. The flexibility and coating of the wire means it handles easily. The coating keeps is secure from fraying.


Length of Wire: Use combinations of the offered lengths to get the desired total length. For example – choose a quantity of “8” of the 10M length to select a single length of 80 Meters. We cut and ship all Wire Rope orders as a single length. As a result, each wire order  ships factory wrapped and sealed.  Length of wire determines format of package. As a coil if 150M or less – otherwise on a reel. A requirement of less than 100M on a reel needs a special order (please phone first).


Quality: All Low Cost Wire products meet our strict ISO Quality Standards. Likewise, our Stainless Steel Wire is AISI Mill Certified at manufacture. Our wire rope delivers the optimal balance between high tensile strength, fatigue resistance, abrasion resistance, and structural stability. Finally, our process provides a special treatment for a bright and smooth surface on the wire and cable. As a result, this delivers a truly top-shelf, long lasting product that will look new for ages…

Usage Tips

  • First of all, this wire may be manually, or hydraulically swaged - or mechanically fastened with Wire Rope Grips - but you MUST take off the coating first.
  • 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 should use stainless steel thimbles (although galvanised are accetpable) 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 7x7 and 7x19 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 7x7 and 7x19 structures.
  • Manual swaging is done using Ferrules (or crimps or hand swages) rather than Wire Rope Grips. Nickel Coated Copper may be used instead of Aluminum with Galvanised Wire Rope. However, be aware that Aluminium swages WILL cause a dissimilar alloys reaction if used with Stainless Steel wire. Low Cost Wire strongly recommends an All-in-1 swaging tool. Recommended for only 7x7 and 7x19 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 1x19. (works with 7x7 and 7x19 structures).

Installation Considerations

  • Matching alloys is important and avoiding cross contamination is very important. Standard fittings for G2070 Galvanised Steel Wire are made from either Aluminium or Galvanised Steel.
  • It is recommended that similar alloy fasteners are used so that a dis similar (corrosive) alloy reaction is avoided. Generally G304 Stainless Steel screws are used in timber (counter sunk screws in soft woods and pan head screws in hard woods). Generally, G304 Stainless Steel Rivets are used to attach Eye Strap Saddle fittings to metal surfaces (aluminium, mild steel, and stainless steel).
  • It may be necessary to (electrically) isolate and insulate fittings from any non stainless steel substrate material - again to avoid a galvanic (dissimilar alloys) reaction. This can be done using an insulation device such as nylon washers or grommets
  • 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
