These are the features that permit strand to adapt so successfully to structural applications.

The higher strength results in an increased design factor of the guying system. WW is also ISO certified. In doing so, we are able to test and certify the following: Structural strand provides a high strength-to-weight ratio, a high modulus of elasticity and a small diameter-per-unit strength. The steel shall conform to the following tensile requirements: For users who opt to use SS without downsizing the diameter of the strand, other benefits apply.

Structural 6a03 is used as a load-carrying tension member where great flexibility and bending are not major requirements. The prestretched rope shall meet the a03 minimum modulus of elasticity.

This specification covers zinc-coated steel structural wire rope, prestretched or nonprestretched for use where a high-strength, relatively flexible prefabricated zinc-coated multiple-wire tension member is desired a63 a component part of a structure.

In addition, WW can obtain material certification from end termination vendors. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. The wire rope is furnished with Class A weight zinc-coated wires throughout. Please contact your WW regional astn manager or customer service representative for further information.


It can be furnished with Class B weight or Class C weight zinc-coated outer wires or Class B weight or Class C weight zinc-coated wires throughout where additional corrosion protection is required.

For any given diameter, wire strand is the least flexible of steel cables. The weight of the zinc coating shall be determined by a stripping test made on the individual wires prior to fabrication of strand.

Smaller Fittings—Many fittings manufactured for standard strand may be used with the SS, thereby offering a lower astmm per unit and adding further cost reductions. Bethlehem Structural Wire Rope consists of six strands made from zinc-coated wire with strands laid helically around a core, such as another strand or smaller wire rope.

ASTM A – 98() Standard Specification for Zinc-Coated Steel Structural Wire Rope

The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. Using SS also offers these advantages: This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. Bethlehem Structural Strand is an arrangement of wires laid helically around a center wire to produce a symmetrical cross section. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Structural wire rope provides greater flexibility when compared with coarse strand constructions and is generally the structural cable of choice where bending ability is an important requirement, such as forming flemish eye ends drop terminals.


Reduced Structural Strand Diameter—Now that designers can utilize a smaller diameter strand for the guying system, SS offers a lower cost per foot, allowing the user to cut valuable dollars from the cost of a project.

ASTM A603 – 98(2014)

In doing so, 6a03 are able to test and certify the following:. When specified, the wire rope shall be prestretched.
