You’ll find a variety of wire rope constructions and capacities at Certex. From small diameter GAC wire ropes to large high-performance ropes, you will discover that there isn’t just one type of wire rope that’s perfect for every job.

Wire rope is made up of all independent parts – wires, strands and cores – that continuously interact with each other during service. Wire rope engineers design those parts in differing steel grades, finishes and a variety of constructions to attain the best balance of strength, abrasion resistance, crush resistance, bending fatigue resistance and corrosion resistance for each application.

If you need something lighter than wire rope, we specialize in AmSteel®-Blue and Stable Braid. AmSteel®-Blue is a torque-free, 12-strand single braid that yields the maximum in strength-to-weight ratio and, size-for-size, is the same strength as steel—yet it floats. AmSteel®-Blue is a proven cost-saving replacement for wire rope in key applications where strength, weight and safety are important.
