Superflex Cable

Superflex Wire ropes are designed for applications where high breaking strains, outstanding rotation resistance, or tremendous flexibility are needed.

It is a plaited configuration, setting it apart from standard wire rope which is Laid or Twisted. This allows the cable to be composed of many more wires than a standard laid wire rope.

Superflex cable is comprised of 912 individual wires in a cross-section which creates a cable with great flexibility yet still strong enough for practical general use.

Franklin Offshore Australia is able to supply Superflex in a cable length or in a sling form.

Cable Stockings

Cable Stockings (or Cable Socks) are effectively tubing weaved together with wire rope. They are designed to securely grip all types of bare cables when there is no end fitting to grab hold off.

The more tension applied, the tighter the cable sock will grip the wire rope.
