7 x 19 Construction
Commonly used on small diameter pulleys, running rigging on sailboats, exercise equipment, winches and control cables. 7x19 is the best all around cable for most applications.
1 x 19 Construction
Commonly used on cable railings, stationary rigging on sailboats, guy wires and push pull control cables. 1x19 is best suited for stationary applications.
7 x 7 Construction
Small diameter 7x7 cable is great for use on pulleys and general use when diameters are needed smaller than available in 7x19 construction. Coated Stainless 7x7 cable is commonly used in marine applications or cable railings, while the galvanized offerings are used in general industry and agriculture.
6 x 19 Construction
Each 6x19 wire rope strand begins with one large center wire that is covered by a layer of nine smaller wires and then an outside layer of nine larger wires. The 6x19 wire rope has larger outer wires than 7x19 which adds to an increased abrasion resistance but also decreases its fatigue resistance. This rope can stand up against abrasion or crushing on the drum.
