Applications which demand a more crush- & abrasion resistant wire rope. Winch lines, railings, suspension cables, boom pendants, boom hoist ropes, anchor lines. Also used as hoisting rope on many old design overhead cranes.

Rope Characteristics

Wear & crush resistant, but not very flexible. Less fatigue resistant then
6x36 rope.
