General Working Lines
Ultrex is a 12-strand single braid of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber from DSM Protective Materials and enhanced with Yale’s Maxijacket High Performance coating, which supplies superior abrasion resistance. Ultrex's braid angles and twist level are designed to optimize break strength and keep stretch low.
Sierra 78 is a 12-strand single braid of bio-based Dyneema®, an Eco Sustainable fiber. Made with bio-based feedstock, this fiber maintains the unique properties of Dyneema® while providing a more sustainable solution without compromising final product performance. Yale is excited to be one of the first to partner with DSM Protective Materials on this commitment to realize a more sustainable product. Choose Sierra 78 for exceptional performance and a certified green product for your equipment.
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.
Larger plaited Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) Brait. UHMWPE fiber is one of the strongest fibers known and is very low elongating. The geometry of the plaited UHMWPE allows more substantial dynamic loads to be imparted on the rope without compromising its longevity.
Maxibraid is a 12-strand single-braid rope constructed from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene UHMWPE fiber. UHMWPE has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any synthetic or natural fiber, and it floats. The integral Maxijacket High Performance coating firms the construction, increases wear life and helps keep contaminants out of the rope.
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.
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.
