What is galvanised catenary wire?

Galvanised catenary wire is a type of steel wire rope that has been coated with a layer of zinc to protect it from becoming rusted when exposed to the outdoor elements. The term "catenary" refers to its specific use in supporting overhead cables or wires in applications like fencing, construction, and suspension bridges.

How do I choose the right size and strength of catenary wire for my project?

The length and strength of catenary wire depend on the specific requirements of your project. Factors to consider when making your choice include the weight of the load it will support, the distance between support points, and the environmental conditions of your project location. If you're not sure which option to choose, make a note of the product code of the wires that you have in mind and contact our team for expert advice.

What do I need for a catenary kit?

A catenary wire kit typically contains all the components necessary for installing and securing a catenary wire system. In these kits you'll usually find items such as the catenary wire itself, turnbuckles, eye bolts and a hook plate.

At Ormiston Wire, we stock a range of catenary kits to suit your project and budget requirements. It's important to remember that not all catenary kits are load rated, and therefore should be used for cosmetic home and garden projects, and may not be suitable for anchoring materials such as concrete.
