Lashing wire may not be considered a “priority item” when the buyers are out there doing their purchasing, but when it doesn’t work properly and cable falls off the pole, everyone “runs for the hills” to try to get the build out, overbuild or upgrade fixed. It would be much better for us to work together to determine which lashing wire would serve the user best. In the long run, money would be saved on both sides.
The three major alloys used today are 430, 302 and 316; however, there are many other alloys available if there are special uses. Today’s environment requires us all to take another look at what we are putting on these poles.
