12 Strand Single Braid
This rope has fibers twisted into strands then braided into a single rope. This technique eliminates torque and hockling during use, yet produces a rope that is easily spliced for efficient work time management.
A tightly braided outside jacket creates a diamond pattern around an inner core in this construction. It is extremely strong and durable, holding its shape under stress without damage.
This rope is formed by braiding an inner core then braiding an outer layer over the core. It is strong, good for load bearing, resists abrasion and doesn't kink easily. Very durable.
Due to its construction without a core, this rope is light weight and easily spliced. It is an economical general purpose rope.
