Cable Station

SBCRI’s Cable Station can be used to conduct tension testing on materials ranging from steel braid cable to nylon strapping to fall protection tethers.

Testing can be done on these stations under the following standards:

  • ASTM A931 – Standard Test Method for Tension Testing of Wire Ropes and Strand
  • ASTM A1023/A1023 M – Standard Specification for Stranded Carbon Steel Wire Ropes for General Purposes
