Yalex

Yalex Rope

Yalex is a single-braid, 12-strand rope constructed of Performance Fiber’s type 1W81 high-tenacity polyester. (This is the same polyester we use in our flagship Double Esterlon product.) Yalex always is finished with a Maxijacket coating to optimize the abrasion life of the rope. The strongest of all Yale’s polyester ropes, Yalex also is extremely easy to splice. Yalex’s two-end-per-carrier construction creates a larger void in the middle of the rope, making used rope splicing easier, or production splicing for sling making faster.

Specific Gravity: 1.38

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