The DESIGN LINE swageless terminals are designed for decorative use and should not be used as railings or rigging.
In contrast to the standard swageless hand-mounted terminals and turnbuckles, the swageless Design line terminals have a breaking load limited to 50 % of the cable breaking load (7 strands/ 7 wires or 7 strands/19 wires) for the corresponding Ø, and are limited to a maximum diameter of 6 mm.
Do not use with single strand cable (1*19), which is too rigid.
The DESIGN LINE includes the main elements of the standard swaged range, butwith reduced dimensions and a lower breaking load.
It can be used for more discreet assemblies, on projects that do not require a great deal of strength such as interior decoration or furnishings, guard rail filling, etc.
For safety reasons, DESIGN LINE terminal and turnbuckle breaking loads are limited to 50% of the breaking load of a single-strand rope (1-strand 19 wires) of the corresponding diameter.
Ø4 mm single strand cable = 1340 kg
"Expected' DESIGN LINE terminal breaking load = 50% of 1340 kg = 670 kg
With a maximum cable diameter of Ø6 mm or Ø10 mm depending on the model, DESIGN LINE terminals are swaged using a roller machine, using the jaws of the smaller diameter: (Example: if Ø 6 mm cable, then Ø5 mm jaws)
The reduced diameter of the part to be crimped (thickness of the material to be shaped) also allows manual pressing/crimping by means of a suitable crimping tool.
(Ask us about this).
The maximum thread size for terminals, turnbuckle accessories and turnbuckle bodies is M12.
The bodies are of reduced length to fit the short DESIGN LINE terminal threads.
With only metric threading and tapping, the DESIGN LINE finishing accessories also adapt to and complete the standard range terminals.
