Our steel aircraft cable is rated to support 45 lb, and constructed with 49 strands, using a 7x7 pattern. This particularly picture hanging hardware is strong because it is woven from 7 strands, which are woven into a bundle. Then 7 bundles are wrapped around one another. That is why it is described as 7 bundles of 7 strands, or 7x7 wire rope construction.

There are many ways to fabricate a steel picture hanging wire (cable) and many are less expensive. The 7x7 construction offers the best balance between strength and flexibility. At one end of each of our cables, we press-on a fitting using a hydraulic press. These fittings make the picture hanging wire compatible with one or more of our tracks and other picture hanging hardware. We distinguish between these with names like P End, Twist End, etc.

At the opposite end of the cable assembly, we fuse the wire strands together. This is done to help prevent the cable from fraying. It keeps the 49 loose stands all bound together in one tight mass. Without this detail the cable would likely fray and prematurely fail, an unnecessary mishap when designing a display cable system. For this reason, whenever possible, we recommend our steel cable not be cut in the field. When it is necessary to cut a cable, please use our Cable Trim Kit. This kit makes it possible to re-fuse the cut end with adhesives.

The Nylon Cord is nearly invisible against a white wall. Transparent cords are manufactured from a single nylon strand and is rated for 15 lbs. This P End fitting picture hanging hardware is used with Classic Wall Track, Classic Ceiling Track, Contempo® Track and Display Reveal. The discreet Twist End Cords are used with Click Rail, Drop Ceiling, Up Rail, Deco Rail and Shadowline Tracks.
