1/2" wire rope is a solid choice for many rigging applications. With break strengths ranging between 10.3 tons (26,600 lbs.) and 14.6 tons (29,200 lbs.), this diameter of rope can be counted on to provide the high level of performance you require.
Finishes include the standard bright covering, galvanized, and 304 stainless steel.
The standard finish has a lubricant coating to reduce friction and provide some protection from corrosion. The galvanized and stainless steel finishes provide additional corrosion-resistance.
The spin-resistant rope has an innovative design to help keep the cable from rotating while under a load. The inner strands are spun in the opposite direction as the outer strands.
Due to this, they are the recommended choice for hoisting unguided loads with a single-part line.
Depending on your needs, you can buy our wire rope by the foot, by the half coil (2,500 ft), or by the full coil (5,000 ft).
US Cargo Control offers a full line of rigging supplies so you can find the perfect solution. Our selection includes additional wire rope options (ranging in diameter from 1/8" to 2-1/2"), guy wire, wire rope fittings, and general rigging hardware.
