Please note there are specific product selectors for Leisure Marine, Commercial Marine, Safety, Lifting & Winching, Windows & Small Cords and for All Ropes and Cords.

The 12 strand construction is used in conjunction with the Technora® fibre. This ensures that a rope is able to deliver both on strength and heat resistance where necessary.

Technora® is used wherever safety and protection are essential. The unique properties of Technora® give a number of significant advantages over other synthetic yarns and steels in ropes and cables. Applications range from mooring cables, hoisting cables, cables for deep-sea applications, ropes for installing high-voltage cables, elevator cables and lines for para-gliders. Technora ropes provide accurate positioning of theatre stage equipment with no fire-related issues and in black are easy to conceal.
