Regarding wire rope ....

(Apologies IF i'm getting boring with the "We use at work" )

A system called Gripple

http://www.steelwirerope.com/GalvanisedFittings/Gripple/index.html?gclid=COGSgt7-9NQCFY8Q0wodfLUIjg#

And one called Dobygrip

http://www.dobygrip.com/wire-on-reels.html

For hanging Aircon units/ductwork etc ...

the wire is available in different diamaters/galvanised/stainless etc etc

The 3mm Dobygrip wire will take 100kg on a single fixing straight drop according to the specs ...

Not sure it's any useful info ...BUT thought I'd bore you lol

I found some pictures of the wire ladder I made. Looks like it was back in 2010.

Detail of the jig for spacing rungs;

Rungs spaced out on jig;

Rungs clamped in position on jig with alloy angle so wires can be tensioned for fixing them in position with the pins and resin;

I still have the jig and the centring guide for drilling the rungs we made up so could knock out some more if the mood ever took me Smile
