4.8mm wire, primarily for use inBalustrade Constructions. 7×19 wire structure is best suited for use in mechanically swaged fittings, whereas 1×19 is best suited for use in hydraulically swaged fittings, and 7×7 works with both manual swaging and hydraulic swaging.

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

4.8mm Stainless Steel Wire Rope

4.8mm 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, 4.8mm Stainless Steel Wire Rope has become the premium wire used in Wire Rope Balustrade Construction in Australia.

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). 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).

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 4.8mm 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).
