Crane cables is a term used to cover a range of specialist cables powering and controlling cranes, hoists, festoons, conveyors and gantries. Used across heavy industry including mining and marine, they must be robust and capable of handling both torsional and tensile stresses simultaneously. These mobile machines for lifting and handling are often manufactured with a robust rubber outer sheathing to protect against the constant reeling and movement as well as providing protection against oils and greases. Cables with Polyethylene (PUR) and PVC sheathing are also available.

The cables are UV resistant – applications such as tower cranes and port loading gantries are subject to the elements – as well as being resistant to oils and greases. These cables are EMC screened as the cables are carrying loads and need protection from nearby electromagnetic interference. The cables remain flexible between -20oC and +70oC.
