Global technology leader in the manufacture of wire and fibre rope solutions

Suspension Bridge Ropes - Handstrand Cables

Spiral Strand

Benefits:

  • Helically spun round wires in several layers
  • Layers are spun in opposite directions
  • Internal blocking compound and lubricant can be applied during stranding
  • High axial stiffness
  • High breaking load due to high strength wires
  • Good clamping capabilities
  • Torque balanced due to cross laying
  • High fatigue resistance
  • Excellent corrosion resistance due to Galvanised wires (zinc or Galfan®)
  • Internal blocking compound
  • Additional coating (if required)
  • Standards: EN12385-10 & ASTM A586
  • Diameter range 13 - 165mm
  • Properties range:
  • 171 - 25200 kN Minimum Breaking Load
  • 19 - 2640 MN Nominal Axial Stiffness

Bridon Structural Systems are experienced in all aspects of project realisation - from conception through to completion.

Our world leading manufacturing capabilities are accompanied by a high level of quality assurance and in-house expertise in research and development, design engineering, project management and installation.

• Alternative sizes and constructions are availible to suit individual applications
• Minimising the number of different strand diameters can optimise costs
• Swaged sockets are suitable for Spiral Strand diameters up to 35mm
• Stylite® sockets are suitable for use with all Spiral Strand diameters
• Strands with internal blocking material add 4% to nominal metallic mass
