Steel cables are very strong making them ideal for use in structures subject to tensile loads. They are composed of multiple individual strands that are bundled together in different patterns according to the requirements of different uses. The most common types of construction cable are the following:
—Open spiral: The cables are wrapped around a central cable. They are used as stiffeners, in suspension bridges, cable mesh, railings, flat lightweight structures, etc. Pfeifer offers the following models: PE (stainless steel, E=130 ± 10 kN/mm², brilliant in color) and PG (Galfan® galvanized, E=160 ± 10 kN/mm², silver gray).
—Closed: Model PV, E=160 ± 10 kN/mm², with good protection against corrosion.
Pfeifer also offers a selection of end pieces and fittings, including head plugs, threaded terminals, connection clips, tensors, etc.

In closed cable, the outside layer of strands is laid in a Z-shaped pattern to form a smooth and closed surface that protects the interior from corrosion.
Pfeifer also offers fittings such as cable terminals.
