7×7 (6/1) – Marine Grade Stainless Steel Wire Rope

7×7 (6/1) – Wire Strand Core Wire Rope

7×7 AISI316 stainless steel wire rope is used for a wide range of applications. More flexible than 1×19 but more rigid than 7×19, the 7×7 construction is often used where 1×19 lacks enough flexibility for an application or where 7×19’s weaker breaking load is too low for an application. Used extensively throughout the marine industry as well as for general engineering applications, 7×7’s excellent breaking load and flexibility in the smaller diameters make it a favourite for control cable and a variety of marine rigging applications, examples of which are shown below:

  • Applications
  • Control cables
  • Guardrail
  • Standing rigging
  • Running rigging
  • Steering cable
  • Marine/Saltwater environment
  • Sewage treatment works
  • Wire rope slings
  • Davit ropes
