Low Elongation Rope
Novabraid low stretch ropes depend upon a combination of yarn selection and construction to design products with known elongation at % of tensile load. Low stretch ropes can be used as control or suspension lines where length at load is critical. Low stretch or minimal energy absorbing lines are much safer in docking, towing or winch applications where failure and recoil may be extremely dangerous.
Products for this performance:
Novalite - NOVA LITE is a double braided construction of multifilament polypropylene in both core and cover. Novatec’s unique process provides for a stronger, lighter line that is easy to handle with no water absorption.
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.
Polyspec - POLYSPEC is a double braided rope constructed with a 100% polyester cover and a 100% urethane coated Spectra® core. It is designed for general marine, industrial, and commercial applications. . .
Dinghy Braid - DINGHY BRAID is carefully constructed with a high tenacity polyester parallel core with a Diamond Braid polyester cover. Core and cover balance insures a strong, low stretch and easy to handle line.
XLE - Z Feel - XLE-Z FEEL PERFORMER SERIES is an extra low elongation, 100% Polyester double braid like our standard XLE but with a cover constructed from DuPont’s Type 77 Dacron, long staple, spun filament, yarn.
XLE Performer - XLE-PERFORMER SERIES is our top of the line extra low elongation, 100% polyester double braid. XLE is made from the highest quality polyester yarns with marine finish on both core and cover.
Star Line - Starline double braid uses the same high quality yarns as Novablue but with a tighter 32 carrier cover to minimize snagging and dirt retention. It is supple yet firm in hand and is easily spliced in sizes 1/2" diameter and greater. Exceeds NFPA 1983-6 tensile and elongation requirements
Weighted Fast Ropes - Novatec's proprietary fast rope is designed to minimize rope motion in high wind and downwash insertion or rescue operations. Options include Spectra personnel or gear attachment loops.
