Wire rope with 90 deg eyelet-end fixing
For rapid on-site installation, especially on concrete ceilings, some contractors prefer to use a hanging wire with an integral ceiling anchoring point. Our wire rope with 90 degree eyelet-end fixing can be secured using impact tools and proprietory direct-to-concrete anchors.
This suspension wire has an integral fixing eye bonded onto the top end of the 1.5 mm diam cable. The eyelet component is pre-formed at a 90 degree angle so the cable can be attached directly to the ceiling. Use with preferred concrete fixings or masonry anchors. The sturdy fitting has a 7mm hole and is typically used with 6mm diameter impact anchors installed using power tools.
The length of the wire is pre-set at either 1m or 3m depending on the cable drop required. No screws or plugs are supplied with this wire - the installer should provide the appropriate fixings depending on the ceiling to which it is to be anchored.
The bottom of the cable is a plain end, fused to prevent fraying. The cable with 90 deg eyelet end can be combined with one of our adjustable height suspension hooks or other fittings sourced by the installer according to on-site requirements.
Each wire assembly has a safe working load of 15 kg with a 5:1 safety factor. The wire thickness is between Gripple No 1 and No 2 size and compatible with Gripple No 2 fittings. We have our own alternative range of fittings including our Urban Trapeze loop-maker fitting with finger-tip height adjustment. We also supply this component as part of a kit including a hammer-in concrete ceiling fixing and an adjustable suspension hook. See link image below.
