About: New England Ropes - Platinum Protect PES/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.
The PLATINUM® Protect version featuring a polyester cover has been employed with great success in many domains of work at height.The PLATINUM® Protect version featuring a polyester cover has been employed with great success in many domains of work at height. Especially when it comes to rope access procedures at extreme heights (e.g. window cleaning), PLATINUM® Protect PES/PA is a must-have for every industrial climber because of its novel design and low elongation. The PLATINUM® technology with a mechanical connection between the core and the cover enhances your safety and due to the good handling also makes your work easier.Features:
