Cables used in assemblies are made from stainless steel and are resistant to fraying, kinking or snapping. Cables have a 7 × 7 configuration: seven individual wires twisted into seven different layers/rows to make a total construction composed of 49 wires. This creates a durable construction with high flexibility and abrasion resistance. Cable fixings and internal components are made from #SS303 stainless steel alloy. Cables are provided with spring tensioners—cable will not slacken with temperature changes; easily adjusted without tools. The SS303 is a non-magnetic austenitic alloy specially designed for improved machinability while maintaining good mechanical and corrosion resistant properties. It is fairly resistant to general atmospheric corrosion, cleaning solutions, sterilizing solutions, dyestuffs, most organic chemicals, but has very limited resistance to acids.
Colors and Finishes:
Natural Stainless Steel Finish—machined polished for a satin/semi-gloss texture. High-gloss polished stainless steel or other finishes are available upon request. Lead times will be longer and a minimum quantity may be required.
For indoor and outdoor use. Our stainless steel cable system performs well in both closed and open environments as long as it is not exposed to direct corrosive elements such as marine or submerged saltwater uses. For marine or other high humidity environments, please request stainless steel type 304/316 cables that have a higher corrosion resistance. Follow the instructions and weight-bearing limitations indicated on the technical datasheets.
Cables are designed and manufactured to the rigid standards of quality with a 12-month guarantee on all metal components.
