Cord No3 ( 500mt )



SKU: Cord No3 500mt ( S90 ) Category:


1110 Picture Hanging Cord White No.3 46kg 500m

Framers can use any of the brown or white LION low-stretch picture cords confident that they will never fail in normal use

Made for us by the same UK manufacturers for many years, to ISO9001 quality standards and braided using polyester or polypropylene fibre.

– Neither fibre will rot or degrade over time. They will not absorb moisture from the atmosphere which can change the characteristics of some cords.

– Less than 1% stretch carrying a 15kg frame.

– No.3 cord is 2.5mm in diameter.

Safe working load

The LION low-stretch cords range has five load variations in white, for frames from 22kg up to 84kg, and three in brown, for frames from 22kg up to 46kg.

As is normal engineering practice, the safe working loads quoted, SWL, are approx. 25% of the manufacturers tested failure load so if the frame is a bit heavier than expected or there is an occasional ‘shock’ loading, there is a big margin for error.

This no.3 white cord, 1110, has a failure load of 184kg giving an SWL for frames up to 46kg.

Tips for safer and reliable picture hanging

– Select the correct cord and practice tying secure knots.

– Use suitable hangers on the frame such as one-hole or two-hole D Rings.

– Suggest to customers that for larger frames, they hang them on two hooks spaced apart. This spreads the load and makes the frame more stable. Bumpers on the bottom corners help stability.
