Stainless steel cable according to the notes in the section of "Wire Rope Systems". Please also notice the general information about stainless steel wire.


Delivered As:

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

  • as a reel of 10 m

  • as a reel of 25 m

  • pre-cut: a variant from time to time, more reasonably priced as compared with spool and bundle. A roughly measure cutting with plus + tolerance: If e.g. you enter "15 m", you get a stainless steel cable of approx. 15.01 to 15.30 m length if several sections desired, the sum of all desired cable sections in the order form is first rounded up to the nearest meter and entered during the order-course (on 'Checkout') are the lengths of the individual cables in the 'comments' named. Such a centimeter-accurate cutting is done at no extra charge.

  • in meter-assembled kits, again you get the amount specified 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 centimeter accuracy, to cut the steel wire into several pieces. If you order, in addition, holder and cable for an extension piece beside a pre-manufactured kit, you can write in the order (at 'checkout') in the field 'Remarks' that the additional ordered cable amount from, say 3 ms, should not be separated, but attach to the standard length of the kit to be delivered. Then we deliver not 12 + 3 ms, but 15 ms in one piece.


The final cutting is carried out mostly during the installation. Special cable cutters can be purchased here. The stainless steel wire ropes are approximately four times harder than simple structural steel and with bolt or side-cutters often can’t be severed. At most with a hacksaw or grinder (in connection with insulating tape wrap, to prevent cable unravelling). Caution: Flying sparks when cutting may cause loss of resistance to corrosion and then cause rust at the meeting point to other stainless steel parts such as wall brackets, etc.! Each end of the rope should project by about 10 cm in addition to corresponding elements (end sleeves, muff) at 1.8 mm rope plan 5 cm.
