Dyneema Ropes Successfully Stopped a 7T Truck Traveling at 40mph in Gate Barrier Testing
We received an enquiry for a high strength, low weight rope to be installed inside gates at government and military facilities around the world. The rope needed to be strong enough to stop enemy vehicles from attacking, but also as lightweight as possible for ease of installation and the ability to open the gate for other vehicles.
To meet these requirements, we developed a range of Dyneema ropes with protected sleeving for extra cut resistance. These ropes were tested at a facility in the West Midlands, where they successfully stopped a 7T truck traveling at 40mph. Following this successful testing and approval, our ropes have been used in gate barriers worldwide to keep people safe.
