Certex Ventura specializes in wire rope, and you’ll find a variety of wire rope constructions and capacities. 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.
The primary factor in wire rope performance is selecting a wire rope with the best combination of properties for the job. The service life of that rope can be greatly extended by following a planned program of installation, operation, maintenance and inspection to avoid the most common causes of wire rope failure including kinking, overloading, dragging, improper spooling and whipping.
We also have a wide variety of wire rope accessories like locking hooks, eye hooks, swivel hooks, sliding choker hooks, sliding latch type choker hooks, snap hooks, swivels, wire rope thimbles, and turnbuckles.
