This diameter of Stainless Steel Wire Rope is used primarily used in Industrial Style Balustrade Construction and in (small) Yacht Rigging. Because this diameter has relatively low  flexibility, it handles easily. As a result, 4.0mm Stainless Steel Wire Rope has become the premium wire used in Wire Rope Balustrade Construction in Australia.

4.0mm Stainless Steel Wire Rope

4.0mm Stainless Steel Wire Rope is used primarily used in Commercial Style Balustrade Construction and in (small) Yacht Rigging. It offers excellent strength and a prestige look to a balustrade project.

Because this diameter has relatively low  flexibility, it handles easily. As a result, 4.0mm Stainless Steel Wire Rope has become the premium wire used in Wire Rope Balustrade Construction in Australia.

Our international supplier produces AISI Mill Certified wire rope. In addition, the certificate is available on request. 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…

Application:

  • First of all, this 4.0mm 7×19 G316 Stainless Steel Wire Rope 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.  Aluminium swages WILL cause a dissimilar alloys reaction and as a result corrode  the Stainless Steel wire and catastrophic swaging failure should be expected.  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).
