Single Braid

For heavy duty industrial applications, single braided rope by Yale Cordage is the best in the business. We offer nine diverse styles that suit the varying needs of many technical, safety and rappelling maneuvers. From utility work to oceanographic applications, single braid rope needs to be dependable, strong and efficient to handle.

Yale Cordage offers the re-engineered PE-12 that now boasts even stronger high tenacity polyester fibers in a Maxijacket urethane coating for unsurpassed durability. Need cordage that will float? Choose Maxibraid, our signature 12-strand single braid rope that is comprised of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene fiber--the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any synthetic or natural fiber.

Yale Cordage is proud to introduce the first synthetic rope designed specifically to resist wear and tear from fish bites. Our Shark Byte single braid is made up of a revolutionary new composite of copolymer olefins and Vectran Liquid Crystal Polymer that has achieved the best bite resistance the industry has seen!

  1. PolyPlus Braid PolyPlus Braid

    PolyPlus Braid is an affordable 12-strand single braid rope constructed of high tenacity polyester plied over "Para-ep" polyolefin in each individual strand. A unique plying technique as well as a generous proportion of polyester to olefin is coupled with Yale's exclusive Aralube treatment which optimizes the ropes abrasion resistance...

  2. PE-12 PE-12

    PE-12™ has been recently re-engineered boosting its strengths significantly. Using the same high tenacity fiber we use in our value packed Portland Braid, this high tenacity polyester single braid offers a single end per carrier construction which keeps the rope from flattening out in service and self centers in sheaves beautifully. PE-12 comes with the same tough grades of Maxijacket urethane we use on our more expensive products...

  3. Aracom 100 Aracom 100

    Aracom 100™ is a 12-strand rope comprised of 100 percent Technora Aramid fiber. Teijin's Technora Aramid is selected for this rope due to its ease of handling and reduced internal yarn on yarn friction, which greatly increases this Aramid's longevity. Before we twist this fiber we over apply our own exclusive Aralube coating which improves its translation efficiency as we process it through our manufacturing facility...

  1. Ultrex Ultrex

    Ultrex is a 12-strand single braid of 100% Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMPE) fiber enhanced with Yale's Maxijacket HP coating supplying superior abrasion resistance. Ultrex's braid angles and twist level are designed to optimize break strength and keep stretch low. UHMPE is the most forgiving high modulus fiber giving better bend over sheave cycling capabilities than other high tech fibers....

  2. Maxibraid Maxibraid

    Maxibraid™ is a 12-strand single braid rope constructed from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene fiber. UHMPE fiber has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any synthetic or natural fiber, and it floats. The integral Maxijacket HP coating firms the construction, increases wear life, and helps keep contaminants out of the rope...

  3. Vectrus Vectrus

    Vectrus is a single-braided rope of 100% Vectran™ LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) and is always treated with Yale's Maxi-jacket Coating to increase abrasion resistance and enhance the fibers UV resistance. LCP is more tolerant of tighter bending radii in terminations than other high-modulus fibers...

  1. Yalex Yalex

    Yalex is a single braid, 12-strand rope constructed of specially lubricated 1W81 high tenacity polyester. Yalex's two end per carrier structure creates a larger void in the middle of rope which makes it easier to splice, and makes used rope splicing much easier to perform. Yalex is always coated with Yale's Maxijacket urethane coatings which reduces the new ropes tendency to snag, greatly enhances abrasion resistance and is a great way to color code ropes for application or load rating....

  2. Lugger Line Lugger Line

    Lugger Line™ is a 12-strand single braid of copolymer olefins. Polypropylene and high- density polyethylene are co-extruded to form the fiber. Upon cooling, the molten poly-ethylene and polypropylene material coalesce into a unique fiber with tenacity comparable to polyester but without the friction associated with polypropylene filament. The rope is lightweight, floats, and remains flexible even in freezing conditions, and it won't kink or hockle...

  3. shark-byte-thumb Shark Byte

    Shark Byte 12 is the first synthetic rope ever designed from the ground up to resist fish bite damage. Shark Byte's 12 individual strands are a composite of copolymer olefins mixed randomly with VectranTM LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer).
