Stainless Steel Cable 1.8/3/4 mm, DS 00003 and Others

Stainless steel wire rope 2 / 3 / 4 mm

Product Sheet


Medium-soft stainless steel cable for climbing aids in various diameters, complete with interior strand of stainless steel 1.4401 (AISI 316 - 'seawater resistant'), highly alloyed, declared as A4. 7x7 individual wires rolled blank ('glitter`effect), without plastic sheathing. High 'work-hardening' (via cold-working) of the individual wires.

  • 1.8 mm of cable: yield strength 90 kg (0.9 kN), ultimate strength 180 kg (1.8 kN),

  • 3 mm of rope: yield strength 250 kg (2.5 kN), ultimate strength 500 kg (5 kN),

  • 4 mm of rope: yield strength 500 kg (5.0 kN), ultimate strength 1,000 kg (10 kN).

>>> Price list


Stainless steel cable for all uses according to the notes in the section of "Wire Rope Systems." See also: stainless steel wire.

Delivery Options:

  • as a spool with 125 m cable length (only at 3 mm and 4 mm)

  • as a reel/bundle of 10 m

  • as a reel/bundle of 25 m

  • sold by the meter-- cut to length: A less expensive option than spool and bundle. A roughly dimensionally-accurate cut with 'plus tolerance': For example, if you enter "15 m," you get a stainless steel cable of approx. 15.01 to 15.30 m length; if several sections are desired (e.g: 2 x 3.65 m; 3 x 1.20 m), the sum of all desired cable sections is first rounded up to the nearest full meter and entered in the "Comments" field during ordering (at 'Checkout'). In this case we also cut the cable to centimeter lengths (tolerance -1 cm -- +2 cm) at no extra charge. 

  • sold by the meter-- in pre-assembled kits: Again, you get the amount indicated in the parts list for the respective kit (for example: '12 m') as one piece with plus tolerance. Since each kit is packaged individually, it is also possible to cut the steel cable in several pieces to the nearest centimeter. If you order an additional holder and cable for an extension piece (so, supplementing a pre-manufactured kit), you can write in the 'comments' field at 'Checkout' that the additional ordered cable amount from, say 3 ms, should not be separated, but rather attached to the standard length of the kit to be delivered. We would then deliver 15 m as one length of cable, rather than 12m + 3m. 


The final cutting usually happens during the installation. Special cable cutters can be purchased here. The stainless steel cables are approximately four times harder than simple structural steel and often cannot be severed with bolt or side-cutters... at most, a hacksaw or grinder (in connection with insulating tape wrap, to prevent cable unravelling) may be effective. Caution: flying sparks when cutting/grinding may cause loss of resistance to corrosion, resulting in rust at the meeting point to other stainless steel parts-- wall brackets, etc.! For each end of the cable, a projection of approx. 10 cm-- together with corresponding elements, such as (end sleeves, muff) must be planned for; for 1.8 mm rope, 5 cm is sufficient.
