7×19 indicates a collection of 133 individual wires grouped as 7 sub-strands of 19 wires each. Consequently, 7 wire bundles of 19 wires twisted together form a single strand. This is our most flexible wire for use in rigging or small cranes or winches rather than balustrade construction. Low Cost Wire does not recommend 7×19 wire for balustrade construction.
7x19 AISI316 stainless steel wire rope is used for a wide range of applications. Extremely flexible when compared to both 1x19 and 7x7, the 7x19 construction is often used where a flexible stainless steel wire rope is particularly required. 7x19 performs well for running applications. Used extensively throughout the marine industry as well as for general engineering applications, 7x19’s excellent flexibility make it a favourite for control cable and a variety of marine rigging applications, examples of which are shown below:
