Sockets

 
Open Socket
 

Sockets are used for fastening steel wire rope to a fixed point to which the socket is to be connected. This can be as an anchoring system for tubes or pipes, anchor wires or dredging material, anchor cables of oil platforms, towing cables or for fastening cables in construction purposes such as bridges, roof construction etc.

Sockets are the strongest steel wire rope end fitting and if they are assembled in the proper way then can meet at least the breaking strength of the steel wire rope. In the past, melted zinc was poured into the sockets to attach the steel wire rope; nowadays suitable resins such as Wirelock have been developed for this purpose.

We offer a wide range of sockets including:

  • Drop forged open sockets to BS 463:1958 Part 1

  • Closed Spelter Sockets

  • Open Spelter Sockets

  • Open Wedge Sockets

  • Open Swage Sockets

  • Closed Swage Sockets

  • Gold Nose Sockets

We use Wirelock as standard for any socketing work we carry out.

Our stock range is constantly expanding so please give us a call or contact us online if you require something that does not appear on this site.
