Why Choose Hercules SLR Wire Rope Sleeves
Wire rope sleeves are rigging accessories used primarily to prevent fraying and, in conjunction with wire rope thimbles, create eye-loops at the ends of wire ropes or cables. A strand of wire rope is folded over itself and fastened there with a wire rope sleeve, creating an eye. The wire rope can then be fastened to an object and used in a variety of rigging applications.
Hercules SLR wire rope sleeves are available in copper or aluminum construction, and with a variety of finishes to suit any environment. Our wire rope sleeves are crimped with a swage tool to provide the strongest hold possible.
In rigging, swaging is the process of using a tool or machine to apply force to a sleeve or ferrule to shape it into a desired form. Through this process, wire rope sleeves are compressed onto and around portions of cables to form eyes or other end terminations.
When swaged correctly, wire rope sleeves provide 100% of the capacity of the wire rope to which they’re attached.
