6×26 is a flexible general engineering wire rope readily available in galvanised, ungalvanised and marine grade stainless steel. The wire rope has an equal lay construction (warrington seale) and achieves a superior breaking load to the 6×19 construction range. The construction has been designed to give a flexible rope with a good fatigue life. A 6×26 wire rope is available with either FC (fibre core) or IWRC (independent wire rope core) and is used for a wide range of applications, examples of which are shown below:

  • Applications
  • Holding and closing ropes for grab cranes
  • General engineering applications
  • Wire rope slings
  • Crane ropes
  • Winch ropes
  • Hoist rope
  • Wire rope rigging applications
  • Lifeboat falls
  • Mooring ropes
  • Pursing wires
  • Luffing ropes
  • Tow ropes
