Metal cable has the strength and durability to be one of the most trusted building materials in countless industries. Elite Sales carries a wide range of options for every application, from aircraft cable to cargo cable. Industrial cables are specially made for flexibility, extreme strength and resistance to abrasions. A tightly wound network of individual strands gives cables an unmatched integrity, as even damage to a single strand will not drastically reduce the strength of the cable itself. Below, learn more about the benefits of using quality cables, and find out why Elite Sales is the best option for you.
Galvanized cable has been an industry staple for decades, and for good reason. Through smart engineering, it’s one of the most versatile and reliable building materials. What gives cable its strength? It’s all in the design:
- Wires: The individual wires are the building blocks, but it’s how they are used together that gives cable its strength. The wires are wound such that they can distribute incredible amounts of weight and bear the burden of individual broken wires.
- Strands: It’s that configuration that creates the stronger strands, made by wrapping wires helically around the cable’s core. This gives the cable greater strength and durability.
- Core: The strands are wrapped around a sturdy core to give the cable its firmness. Typically, a cable will have a core made from one of the following:
- Fiber Core (FC): Usually polypropylene, sometimes hemp and sisal
- Independent Wire Rope Core (IWRC)
- Wire Strand Core (WSC): Both this core and IWRC are sometimes referred to as steel wire core or steel center
