Arborist Slings and Rope Tools
Yale produces a wide variety of slings and rope tools for use by arborists.
Double braid, Vectran core, Technora® and polyester braided cover
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.
Double Esterlon or Polydyne, Maxijacket coat
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.
Sling, Dyneema® SK78 core, UHMWPE from DSM protective materials sleeve
LOUPS are the most efficient synthetic slings available and far lighter than steel or conventional round slings. LOUPS bend gracefully. If you look inside a LOUP, you will find just one continuous looped piece of rope (Figure 1), which has been end-for- end spliced to itself.
100% Polyester hollow flat braid
Guardian Brace is an excellent fiber alternative to steel cable. It is easy to splice and easy to adjust in the field. Guardian dramatically reduces your installation costs because there is no hardware required. It is also much lighter and easier to work with.
UHMPE core, Maxijacket coat
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.
Wire Core, Maxijacket coat
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.
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.
Our Synthetic Shackle is made from our Ultrex 12-strand Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber and is Maxijacket High Performance coated for structural firmness and increased abrasion resistance.
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.
