Stainless Wire ropes building houseStainless Steel Wire Rope is very much used in the construction of barriers, staircases. If this is used in horizontal cases then 1/19 wire is considered to be the best. But if in any case vertical wires are to be selected then 7/7 or 7/19 should be the choice so that they can go around the bend at the bottom and at the topmost part of the handrails. At these very points the eyelets of the stainless steel is screwed into timber handrails or stainless tube handrails.

Stainless wire ropes have got its natural features of having large number of crevices. This makes it more vulnerable for absorbing salt, dirt which can start the process of corrosion. The 316 grade stainless steel that is considered to be one of the best and is known as the ‘marine grade’ will start corroding and rusting if it is not taken proper care of. One example that can be mentioned here is that of the 7/7 construction type wire that has 7 wire strands wound up together and seven of these are again wound up to make the final wire.

Products such as Lanotec and Prolan which are on natural Lanolin based material is ideal to apply on the surface of the wire as it helps to protect the wire from corrosion. This product along with the regular cleaning process and maintenance will ensure that the wire is in good condition and does not rust. If you find any rusting that has taken place then you can use a phosphoric acid base cleaner so as to bring back the good appearance of the stainless steel. It is also very important to note that salt deposits and dirt must be cleaned regularly. 316 marine grade steel must be used in coastal environment and smoother finish of the surface ensures better resistance to moisture.
