IRONGRIP BG-S Lifting Quality Wire Rope Clip for Galvanised Cable 2mm to 6mm Diameter
Applications & Advice
- We recommend using a socket drive to tighten nuts
- Applications not used for lifting: one clip per termination
- Applications used for lifting: two clips per termination - applies to both static (hanging load) and dynamic lifting
- *Please note 6mm clips not suitable for lifting*
- One clip is good for stays and braces. Two clips makes the fixation approved for dynamic lifting
- Tested and approved for lifting with modern wire ropes (up to 1960 N/mm2 tensile)
- Efficiency above 90% of MBL of the wire
- KTL e-coating give better corrosion resistance than electro-galvanization and is better for the environment
- Stainless steel (AISI 316) is available for demanding environments
- The IronGrip Wire Clips are approved for lifting applications for up to 5mm diameter 7 strand (7x7 & 7x19) steel cables and wire ropes.
Some of the benefits with the BG-S are:
- 1. The wire clip can be used with or without thimble.
- 2. Check that the rope and clip are undamaged and that the threads have been cleaned and lubricated. Thread lubrication is particularly important in lifting service to obtain the correct tractive force in the screws.
- 3. The length of the loop (h) should, when unloaded, be at least approx. 15 x the rope diameter measured from the clip to the inner curve of the loop (diagram 1). If the rope is to be fastened around a large object, ensure that the pitch angle (v) at the clip is no greater than 45º.
- 4. If more than one clip is to be fitted, the distance between them must be at least 3 x the rope diameter. If thimbles are used, the distance between the clip closest to the loop and the thimble must be at least 1.5 x the rope diameter. Let the end of the rope project from the last clip by at least 5 x the rope diameter.
- 5. Fasten the clip onto the rope as shown in diagram 2, with a part of the rope on either side of the screws, and tighten the nuts alternately. The correct torque is given in the table. The nuts should be tightened with a torque spanner if the termination is to be used for lifting.
