About: New England Ropes - Platinum Protect PA 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® PROTECT PA
PLATINUM® Protect PA comes in 100% nylon which makes it lighter compared to the PLATINUM® Protect PES/PA. Compared to polyester, nylon is more robust in resisting extreme abrasive forces and thus is especially suitable for use in rough rescue and hoisting equipment scenarios. The permanent mechanical connection between the core and the cover prevents bunching of the cover as the rope runs into the device. The benefit of greater safety and better handling pays off especially when using the rope in training facilities.Features:
- Lighter compared to PLATINUM® Protect PES/PA
- Good abrasion resistance in dry conditions
- Good ability to absorb shock loads
- Core: Nylon
- Cover: Nylon
- Braid: 32
