Wire Rope Fittings
Fittings and end terminations are nearly always used with wire ropes as they offer a form of anchoring system. There are numerous types of fittings available from sockets and thimbles to turnbuckles and rigging screws. Lifting Gear Direct has a number of options available if you are looking for a wire rope assembly.
Types of Wire Rope Fittings
Choosing the correct fitting can enable you to make use of a wire rope in the way that you want, in other words a fitting makes the rope more usable.
For example fitting a thimble into a soft eye will make a wire rope more durable. It will make it stronger and protect the wires from abrasion damage. Whilst also offering a more solid loop as an anchor point.
Sockets also create an anchor point, however these are fitted to the very tip of the wire rope. Turnbuckles and rigging screws also fit to the end of a rope and enable ropes to be tensioned to your requirements. These are great when creating barriers.
Ferrules, studs, hooks and eye plates are just some of the other fittings we can supply to compliment your wire ropes.
