Hy-Dee Brait is an 8-strand bi-polymer rope with extraordinary dielectric properties. The rope is nubby, which provides excellent grip, and treated with a proprietary chemical mixture Yale calls Aralube-dielectric.

Featured Applications

Electrical Utility

In sizes 6" through 15" circumference, Larger Nylon Brait is based on Nylon 6-6 and is a four-stage rope, laid firm and easily spliced.

Featured Applications

Industrial

Larger Polyester Brait is a 4-stage rope based on PET high-tenacity yarn, offering exceptional tension fatigue, especially wet.

Featured Applications

Industrial

Larger Spectra Brait is a plaited Honeywell Spectra® fiber. Spectra® is one of the strongest fibers known and is very low elongating. The geometry of the plaited Spectra® allows more substantial dynamic loads to be imparted on the rope without compromising its longevity.

Featured Applications

Industrial

Nylon Brait combines braiding technology with plaited rope optimizing the best of both rope styles. Nylon Brait’s most outstanding feature is its high energy absorption, which comes from a combination of the very long yarn path and stranditure developed especially to maximize energy absorption.
