This is a spliceable urethane coating that is applied after the rope is braided. Maxijacket firms the rope, increases snag resistance, improves abrasion resistance and helps keep contaminants from entering the rope.
Maxijacket HP is a new urethane technology originating in Europe. It brings an innovative toughness to our high-modulus rope offerings. This new material is harder, penetrates better and is twice as abrasion resistant as our traditional Maxijacket coating.
Double Esterlon is a double-braided rope constructed of premium over finish polyester fiber in both the sleeve and core. This product is identified by two green strands braided into the cover structure and is available with optional Maxijacket urethane coating to further enhance the rope’s wear resistance.
Bee-Line Prussic offers high heat resistance provided by its Vectran core and a 75% / 25 % Technora / Polyester braided cover. Bee Line has one of the highest heat-resistant covers available in the market.
Kernmaster is a static-rappelling line 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.
Manufactured with Maxijacket-coated Double Esterlon or Polydyne, each unit has a chafe sleeve-covered small or large eye. Dead Eye slings, as with rigging lines, are color coded for easy identification in the field.
Optimus is a single-braid 12-strand rope manufactured from a solution-dyed polyester and coated with our riggers-grade, abrasion-resistant coating to maximize protection. The vibrant polyester colorfast fibers are resistant to fading and provide lifelong visibility.
Long Shot throw line is a Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber that has been Maxijacket coated for toughness and anti-snagging commonly found in other throw lines.
Polydyne is a double-braided rope that utilizes a polyester sleeve over a nylon core. Despite the dissimilar stretch characteristics of these fibers, Yale engineers have produced constructions where both fibers contribute.
Maxi-Flip wire core flip lines have Free Flex end terminations to minimize the in-use wire rope axial fatigue. This provides the climber with the safest possible end termination.
Portland Braid double-braided polyester offers high value at a very competitive price. Built in the same manner as our Double Esterlon, Portland Braid offers consistent performance at an economical price.
XTC 12 is a "nubbier" hollow braid offering lower weight and excellent abrasion resistance. Built to be round and stay round, XTC 12 is a 12-strand single braid of polyester/"Para-ep" Olefin.
This rope was designed specifically for the demanding needs of the professional arborist. 1/2” XTC 16 meets CE0120 EN1891 Type-A
Sunburst, Calamine and IMORI are arborist climbing lines with nylon cores and enhanced grip. They meet CE0120 EN1891 Type-A.
XTR 12 is an arborist rigger's line with a "nubby" texture to allow for better control. Its construction yields a light yet strong line that provides lifetime flexibility while maintaining abrasion resistance.
XTR 16 was designed specifically for the demanding needs of the professional arborist. The tight-braid polyester cover over a bundled parallel core gives a firm, round feel and offers high snag and abrasion resistance.
Yalex is a single-braid 12-strand rope constructed of premium over finish polyester fiber. Yalex’s two-end-per-carrier structure creates a larger void in the middle of the rope, which makes it easier to splice and makes used-rope splicing much easier to perform.
Split Tails are used to form a bridge from the climber's saddle to the running end of the rope where it is tied off with a suitable friction hitch. A 16-strand rope is fabricated for use as a split tail friction knot. Its firm but flexible construction creates a positive-control sliding friction knot.
The Ultrex winch line featuring the Chook is the leading solution for your chipper winch needs. We created the Chook to succeed the traditional steel hook that is generally used with chipper winch lines.
YaleGrips are made from a Technora® Aramid fiber at braid and are assembled in a 4-leg configuration extending from a reinforcing, securing eye. The eye is covered entirely with an extra layer of braid, which is saturated with Maxijacket urethane, an abrasion-resistant coating for extended life.
