Double Braided ropes are constructed by braiding a sheath over a braided hollow core.
Double Braided ropes are significantly more efficient than conventional 3 and 8 strand ropes giving up to 25% higher breaking strength on a weight for weight basis.
The core strands have double the material of the sheath strands which ensures a perfectly balanced rope between the sheath and core, both accepting 50% of the load.
A consistent load extension history makes these ropes ideal for towing springs, tension winch moorings, mooring springs and engineered solutions requiring absorbing spring mechanism.
