Stainless steel wire rope is mostly utilised during the construction of barriers that are put on decks and also in staircases like the ones used in Balustrade and Handrail applications. In case one needs stainless steel wire rope to be used for horizontal applications, in whatever type of straight line that it is, they should ensure that they choose the 1/19 one because it is the most preferred in such a case. In such a scenario, the one using the wire should make sure that the wire fits on all the edges in the best way possible. In case you need to arrange the wire in a vertical manner, the sizes which are recommended are either 7/19 or the 7/7 as they do that kind of a job in the best manner so that it can be able to go round the bends at both the bottom and top handrails. At the bottom and top handrails, one should make some stainless eyelets on either the timber or the stainless tube handrails.

It is important to note that stainless wire rope usually has some large number of crevices which makes it prone to trap dirt that would be moving around it and also salt which is a way in which corrosion starts. You should be keen to note that all types of stainless steel should be taken care of because even the best grade which is the 316 grade may also rust after corroding if not handled properly. You should consider using products which are best in the market, which are natural lanolin based products, for protecting stainless steel from corrosion and such products are applied on the surfaces of the stainless steel for the best protection. Such products should be utilised even after cleaning and maintaining the stainless steel because through that combination it looks presentable and it does not have any possibility of rusting.

In case you notice any rusting on the surface of the stainless steel, you should use a cleaner which has phosphorus acid which does a very good job in removing the rust (iron-oxide) and restore the original look of the stainless steel wire. There are many other safety tips that you can follow which can help you in preventing any rusting from occurring some of which are choosing the right grade of stainless steel for using on your stainless steel wire rope, making sure that you get a good finish on your stainless steel surface and proper cleaning of the same.
