Plastic ropes

  • ROPE is used as a connecting component for lanyards, horizontal and vertical lifelines, positioning lanyards, pulley systems and some special-order, self-retracting lifelines and in many applications.
  • Rope’s main advantage is that it has a better “hand” than cable or webbing. It is also less expensive than other materials. The rope is to pull heavy objects, connect objects, and bind objects together. The ropes can be classified as twisted rope, Shroud laid rope and cable laid rope.
  • Polypropylene rope is otherwise called as the “plastic” rope. It's only advantage is that it can float in water without any damages caused.
