The polyester is braided and then coating in PU to increase wear resistance. The product is heat set to minimise constructional stretch and maximise performance.

The 12 strand construction offers a highly efficient rope with a high breaking load for the diameter.
The 12 strand construction also affords an efficient splicing technique allowing quick adjustments to be made while in use. Polyester offers a good all round solution to both abrasion and longevity.
