Kernmaster Data

Working load is based on static or moderately dynamic lifting/pulling operations. Instantaneous changes in load, up or down, in excess of 10% of line’s rated working load constitutes hazardous shock load and would void normal working-load recommendation. Consult Yale Cordage for guidelines for working loads and safe use of rope. Kernmaster is made to Yale Cordage Specification #YCI-KRN-011.

Static-rappelling Kernmaster line is constructed with a traditional “mantle” sleeve consisting of 48 strands of polyester. The inside, or “kern,” is a braided core of energy absorbing nylon. The core is fully steam-stabilized to enhance the rope’s flexibility and prevent hardening in service; the braid also bends more easily and with less fatiguing of the core when cycled over sheaves or dropped over a parapet. Sleeve is either white or solution-cast fiber (color added prior to yarn production) which makes for lasting colors and enhanced wear resistance.
