6x26 WS IWRC

  • Fatigue resistance comparable to a 6x25FW 
  • Recommended in any application where a 6x25FW is used
6x26 WS IWRC

The 6x26 WS has better resistance to abrasion than a 6x25FW. It features a compact construction with solid support for the wires; therefore it has a high resistance to crushing. Its number and relative size of the inner wires add to the stability of the strand and gives it a fatigue resistance comparable to a 6x25 FW. A standard 6X26 WS construction provides the best rope for a wide range of applications. In general, we recommend the use of the 6x26WS in any application where a 6x25FW is used.
