TWISTED ROPES (3 & 4 strands) / BRAIDED ROPES (8 strands)

Twisted ropes come from a long way back and until resent years, the only thing that has been evolved was the material used, that changed from natural fibers to man – made ones. This change of fiber gave the construction higher strength and longer life.

Today, twisted ropes are preferred for most simple applications because of their flexibility, knots made, splicing and easy handling in small diameters.

The 4-strand ropes have a slightly firmer lay than the 3-strand ones, since they are round ropes with more outside surface, more traction on sheaves and objects.

Our company produces twisted ropes with the following materials.
The 8-strand ropes are plarted ropes produced in such a way to eliminate the tendecy twisted ropes have to rotate under weight/load.

• High tenacity yarns
• High elongation characteristics
• High stretch – high strength fibers
• UV resistant
• Sinkable ropes
• They can be of split film or monofilaments twines
• Light weight o Waterproof
• Low stretching at work load
• Abrasion resistant
• All strands of the rope can be double twisted
• Floating ropes
• Excellent Fatigue life
• Increased service life
• Low stretch – high strength fibers
• Excellent weather & abrasion resistance
• Sinkable ropes
Sizal & Manila
• Made of high quality natural fibers
• Hygroscopic
• Friendly for environment
• Excellent weather & abrasion resistance
• Flat filaments, a mixture of polypropylene
– polyethylene co-extruded
• One of the strongest floating ropes
• Reduced friction internal and external
• Increased flexibility
• Easy handling
• UV resistant

All of the above mentioned materials form yarns that in turn are twisted into strands and are made exclusively of pure raw materials.

The size of all ropes must always be considered as approximately for obvious reasons and is actually determined by linear density.

Linear density
Is considered standard and in the metric system measured in Kilotex (ktex) that is grams/meter or kilograms/1000 meters length.
All ropes have an extra U.V. protection additives, are made of high quality materials and are properly tested and certified. Twisted ropes have different applications such as in agriculture, transport, gardening, household, decoration, sports, shipping, fishing etc. It is up to the user to choose the right rope suited for the application it is intended for.
