Nylon Brait / Eight - Strand Plaited Nylon Cordage
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. Braits energy absorption also keeps the corresponding loads on attachment points smaller since the rope does more work internally. Brait is spliced easily and the spliced rope delivers 100% of the ropes advertised strength.

* Knots and abrupt bends significantly reduce the strength of all ropes and lowers maximum working load.
** Working load is based on static or moderately dynamic lifting/pulling operations. Instantaneous changes in load up or down, in excess of 10 percent of the rope'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.
