Facts and information
– working with wire fittings..
When planning a wire construction the ultimate break load, as well as the work load, must be calculated, as it will determine the minimum wire size and maybe the wire construction needed.
Blue Wave’s fitting’s, unless otherwise stated, are constructed after termination to meet 90% of the break load on the wire ropes that are standard in the market. PLEASE NOTE : in order to guarantee safety in a wire construction you should calculate a safety factor of 2-3 on static constructions and a minimum of 4 on dynamic constructions. As a general rule working loads should never exceed 25% of the break loads stated in Blue Wave catalogues.
