Double braid, polyester core & sleeve with enhanced fiber 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.

Double braid, UHMWPE core from DSM protective materials, polyester sleeve

Maxibraid Plus is a double-braided rope constructed of an inner load-bearing core of Ultra High Weight Molecular Polyethylene (UHMWPE). The polyester outer sleeve is slightly thicker than Ultrex Plus, which would provide more abrasion resistance in high-wear applications.

Double braid, Dyneema® SK78 core and polyester jacket

Ultrex Plus is a double braid constructed of an inner load baring core of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE), treated with Maxijacket coating for enhanced toughness. Sleeved with high-tenacity polyester, Ultrex Plus is spliceable, using conventional high-modulus splice techniques or the new Yale tuck splice, which shortens the bury portion and minimizes the length of the larger diameter associated with a bury-type splice.

11mm, 11.7mm, and 12mm High Performance Double Braids

Sunburst, Calamine, IMORI, Blaze, Bandit, Blue Tongue, & Energize. Our 24 carrier CE climbing lines feature modified core constructions to achieve CE EN 1891 compliance. This means CE products will have slightly more elongation than the ANSI equivalent. With their higher elongation characteristics our CE products perform slightly better in MRS Climbing systems. Though they can be used in SRS climbing systems especially when canopy anchored.

Polyester/Nylon and heat resistant Technora Double Braid

Kernmaster, Phantom, Scandere, R.I.N.G. Rope. XTC-48 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.
