This rope was designed specifically for the demanding needs of the professional arborist. 1/2” XTC-16 meets CE0598 EN1891 Type-B. XTC-16 is a tight braid consisting of 16 individual strands of polyester. A high-twist core of torque-balanced polyester keeps the construction firm and round, providing an extra safety measure. XTC-16 is an excellent choice for both climbing line and bull rope due to its no snagging, abrasion-resistant construction and excellent energy absorption characteristics.
Fire – Hi-visibility – now introducing the highest-visibility climbing line ever seen in the industry. Fire is specifically designed for the demanding needs of arborists, embodying the same characteristics of XTC-16 ropes Yale has made for the last two decades.
Plus and Spearmint – Our finest and most popular – incorporating all of the characteristics of the White, and adding visibility. Fully half of the cover strands are of bright red or bright green extrusion-dyed polyester, resulting in permanent coloration that won’t fade or run with use. In addition to strength and performance, Plus and Spearmint are ideal for color coding, reducing confusion and increasing the safety of each job.
This climbing line is also available in solid white

|Average Break Strength *(kg)
|Suggested Design Factor 10:1 **(kg)
* Average break strength is based on spliced rope or capstans samples. Knots and abrupt bends significantly reduce the strength of all ropes and lower the design factor.
** Suggested design factor is based on static or moderately dynamic lifting/pulling operations. Instantaneous changes in load, up or down, in excess of 10% of the rope’s suggested design factor constitute hazardous shock load and would void the suggested design factor recommendation. The end user is responsible for choosing the correct design factor specific to their application.
