DOUBLE-BRAIDED POLYESTER ROPES : 10 MM OR 12 MM
For the best performance, always use Portable Winch Co. ropes with your winch. All our ropes are made of double braided polyester. Their construction makes them durable and features low stretch for increased safety. Their low cost and resistance to abrasion also make it a good choice for using with our capstan winches, where it is subject to friction and intense heat.
For pulling, the usual rope end is a bowline knot. It will always be easy to undo, in the case you want to change the hook at the end of the rope.
Splice with galvanized steel thimble is available on some ropes. It provides protection against wear caused by carabiners, shackles and hooks attached at the end of the rope. In addition, the splice maintains almost 100% of the rope capacity, unlike a knot, which reduces its capacity by at least 30%.
