Floating or Bouyant Rope
Novatec Ropes in this category have a specific gravity of less than (1). They are constructed with blends or combinations of polypropylene or polyolefin fibers. Floating ropes include cork lines for commercial fishing nets or barrier nets, tow lines, mooring pennants, performance sailing sheets, and water rescue throw lines. Ropes can be constructed with controlled buoyancy to float at predetermined depth.
Products for this performance:
Oletec 12 - OLETEC-12™ is a hollow braided 12 strand rope using 100% polyolefin high tenacity co-polymer fiber. It is designed with single or two ply construction depending upon nominal size. The rope also has excellent fall protection lifeline capabilities as it exceeds strength requirements of the ANSI Z 359-07 fall protection standard. Fall protection rope grabs work very effectively with the construction and design of the rope to ensure good activation and response to falls when properly connected. The rope also is relatively light and is very flexible which is beneficial for use aloft and when securing.
Pendants - Novabraid Pendants (or pennants) are hand fabricated from Novablue polyester, Novagold nylon or floating Oletec-12 strand polyolefin per customer specification. Programs can be developed for mooring service companies to address local conditions, ordinances and product identification.
MFP Float Line - Our float line is constructed with UV stabilized multifilament polypropylene yarns in a variety of colors. These ropes can be used in high visibility net or rigging applications where light weight and energy absorption are required.
