Introduction of XTC Fire

xtc fireXTC Fire - Yale's High Visibility Response to the Demanding Needs of Arborists

Saco, Maine, June 2004- Yale is pleased to introduce XTC Fire, the highest visibility tree climbing line ever seen on the market. This line is specifically designed for the demanding needs of arborists, embodying the same characteristics of XTC ropes Yale has made for the last two decades.


With a full splash of bright high visibility yellow, orange and red fibers, XTC Fire is made from extrusion-dyed polyester, resulting in permanent coloration that wonít fade or run with use. The tightly woven 16-strand construction with a high twist core of torque-balanced polyester keeps the line firm and round, providing an extra measure of safety and performance.


XTC Fire is an excellent choice for both climbing line and bull rope due to its non-snagging, abrasion-resistant construction and excellent energy absorbing characteristics. This splicable line is available in 1/2" diameter with an average breaking strength of 6,200 pounds.


XTC Fire is available exclusively through Yale Cordage representatives.
