As a high breaking strength wire rope, an aircraft cable work best in commercial and industrial applications. A high breaking strength means the aircraft cable can hold a significant load before breaking.
Typically made of steel cable, aircraft cables attach to a fixture with the ends secured using cable crimps or wire clamps. Crimping tools or swaging tools secure the clamps when used properly.
Aircraft cables see use in commercial grade applications to suspend high or low bay lights and strip light fixtures from the ceiling. Heavy duty aircraft cables safely secure light fixture to prevent falling lights.
