Choosing the right rope construction for your application isn’t always straightforward and with a number of options available it’s not always easy to match the requirements of the rope with the construction type required.
Traditional stranded rope construction dating back thousands of years
The construction gives a easily gripped ‘knobbly’ construction for mooring, anchoring and military fast ropes
An easy to splice rope that offer good torsional stability and used in high strength braids or centre-cores for other ropes
This is made on a 16-carrier machine to produce a ’knobbly’ style braid
A smoother braided cord than can be used with or without a centre-core depending on application or diameter
Typically an easy to spliced rope that can be produced in both core dependent and balanced ropes
Produces a thinner cover to get more strength from a larger centre core but produces a harder to splice rope
An even thinner and tighter cover allowing for an even larger and stronger centre-core. Using in climbing ropes and chafe guard
