Why We Recommend Using our Rotation-Resistant Wire Rope
When loaded, every wire rope will develop torque; that is it has the tendency to 1) un-lay itself 2) cause a lower sheave block to rotate and to spin the line parts together. HTH only uses Rotation-Resistant Wire Rope. Our rotation-resistant characteristics are attained by a design of Multi layers of strands having differing (right and left) directions of lay. Under load, one layer’s directional rotation is counteracted by the tendency of the other layer(s) to rotate in the opposite direction. We only use Domestic Hooks!
