Nylon Brait / Eight - Strand Plaited Nylon Rope

Applications: Docklines and anchorlines

Construction: 8-strand Nylon

Nylon Brait™ is an 8-strand nylon rope created through braid technology that yields a product with a firm strand formation yet full stowage flexibility. The unique construction offers maximum strength and energy absorption, and working windlass grip-hold.

Specific Gravity: 1.14

Color Code: White


On the left, 150' of 3-strand nylon rope. On the right, 150' of Yale Nylon Brait.
Brait’s 8-strand weave makes it much more supple, easy to handle, and yields a very soft hand.

* 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.
