About: New England Ropes - Platinum Offshore Access Rope
This technology is characterized by the permanent mechanical interconnection between the rope‘s core and its cover. Core and cover yarns are interlaced with one another at regular intervals, which keeps any core/cover displacement from happening. These interconnection sites effectively stop any bunching of the cover and core. Thus, PLATINUM® enables the excellent transmission of forces from the cover to the core region and, in this way, prevents any overloading of the cover.
In addition, PLATINUM® also includes the mechanical interconnection of the various twisted cores with one another. This optimizes the distribution of the load among the various cores. The outcome is a dimensionally stable, compact core bundle and thus an equally dimensionally stable, compact rope. PLATINUM® technology makes it possible, for the first time ever, to braid compact, and yet soft and flexible ropes that eliminate any core/cover displacement.
PLATINUM® OFFSHORE ACCESS
PLATINUM® Offshore Access is a rope developed specifically for the harsh conditions encountered during work activities in offshore environments. While exhibiting extremely low elongation, it is still certified to EN 1891 A. PLATINUM® Offshore Access offers good breaking loads as well as advantageous chemical and physical properties such as UV resistance, seawater resistance, and good abrasion strength in both dry and wet conditions. Besides, its innovative color design guarantees excellent visibility. The properties of the fiber combination in connection with our PLATINUM® technology, where the cover and the core are interconnected to each other, result in a rope that is perfectly suited as a work rope for the offshore segment.
