Brait Rope

Yale Cordage designs and manufactures a top quality line up of brait (plaited) rope for a full range of industrial applications from their factory in Maine. Highly technical materials and designs are integral to the safety and efficiency of utility, electrical, construction and marine requirements.

Four sturdy brait types are available in the Yale Cordage catalogue. Our Hy-Dee Brait offers superior dielectric properties, while the Nylon Brait option boasts high energy absorption with less damage than a traditional three stranded rope structure. Our sturdy and dependable Oceanographer’s Brait is “the most predictable nylon rope you can buy,” and Yale Cordage even produces large diameter braits, up to five inches.

Custom cordage is our long standing specialty, so if you don’t see the specific brait your business requires, call the cordage experts at Yale at 207-282-3396 to discuss custom rope options and to locate a distributor near you.

  1. Hy-Dee Brait Hy-Dee Brait

    Hy-Dee 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.

    This treatment is the key to Hy-Dee Brait's wet dielectric performance and allows us to make the highest dielectric strength rope commercially available. Easy to splice with a tucking procedure or by the quick splice method illustrated...

  2. Nylon Brait Nylon Brait

    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 required to make a plaited rope, and stranditure developed especially to maximize energy absorption. Nylon Brait can absorb (or mitigate) greater amounts of dynamic energy than 3-stranded or braided rope structures with less damage. 

  3. Oceanographer's Brait Oceanographer's Brait

    This plaited rope is the most predictable nylon rope you can buy. Yale 1 starts by utilizing nylon 6 which has a much higher energy absorp-tion capability than nylon 6-6. This can mean the difference between a mooring that stays on station or is lost. 2 The fiber is twisted to add firmness, 3 twisted again to add additional energy absorption, and 4 then ply twisted as we close the strand using a counter twisted veneering yarn creating a better balanced strand...

  1. Large Braits Large Braits

    Yale is pleased to announce its acquisition and installation of equipment necessary to produce large diameter plaited ropes. Our capability in these styles of ropes, widely accepted in smaller diameters, now continues through five inch diameter, or 15" circumference. This page provides our preliminary data for these styles of ropes
