yacht ropes

     
 

sheet and halyard ropes

Ropes with low elongation, very high strength and abrasion resistance and long service life. Out of the very broad spectrum of materials, mostly polyester for normal applications is used here while polypropylene is alternative for less demanding conditions.

D-F1

Number one among halyard ropes. D-F1 is an unbeatably strong rope with minimum elongation. The rope surface is furnished with a special protective finish which endows the rope with unusual abrasion resistance and stability when exposed to UV radiation. Considering its extraordinary properties, the rope is the first choice for all advanced yachters.

MARLIN

Marlin is a rope with a brand new construction in the production of which the Double Touch technology has been utilized. This technology offers the following main advantages Đ zero cover-to-core slippage, high abrasion resistance, high strength, very low elongation, and excellent comfort when using the rope. Thanks to its properties, this rope is very universal and suitable mainly for sheets.

D-EXTREME

This top racing rope is a unique mixture of three materials. In the core is braided Dyneema for excellent strength and low elongation. The inner cover is made from polyester staple to reduce shifting between the core and cover. The cover is made 50% aramide (Technora) which is highly temperature resistant (melting point 500 ˇC) and 50% of high tenacity polyester. This combination makes it ideal to use on winches especially during extreme racing.

D-78

A rope that takes advantage of excellent properties of two hi-tech fibres, Dyneema SK78 and Dyneema SK75 Touch. An important property of Dyneema SK78 fibre is that it does not creep even under heavy load and provides the high strength of the rope. Dyneema SK75 Touch contributes to the strength but mainly provides the zero cover-to-core slippage to eliminate problems during the rope passage through pulley systems. Suitable to be used for halyard and where long-lasting heavy loads occur.

Elongation curves for "used" sheet and halyard ropes


The term "used" denotes used regularly under normal weather conditions. These are lab-simulated at tenfold rope loading lasting 10 seconds with the loading force amounting to 20% of the maximum strength of the given rope.
