Hollow Braid Polypropylene

For the Marine Industry

Hollow Braid Polypropylene

Hollow Braid rope is a synthetic polypropylene rope. The hollow braid construction of this rope makes splicing quick and easy. This rope is easy on the hands and it floats. The floating characteristics of Hollow Braid rope make it excellent for marine applications such as ski lines.

Applications: Amusement Park Rigging, General Multi-Purpose

Industries served: Marine, General Purpose

Uses: Ski ropes, water applications, tie down line

Color: Yellow

Rope Safety Considerations

New Rope Tensile Strengths: New rope tensile strengths are based on tests in accordance with ASTM Test Method D-4268 on new and unused rope in laboratory condition.

Working Loads: Working loads are for rope in good condition with approximate splices, in non-critical applications, under normal service conditions. Working loads should be exceeded only with expert knowledge of conditions and professional estimates of risk. Working loads should be reduced where life, limb, or valuable property is involved, or for exceptional service conditions such as shock loads, sustained loads, etc.

The Cordage Institute specifies that the Safe Working Load of rope shall be determined by dividing the Minimum Tensile Strength by the Safety Factor. Safety factors range from 5 to 12 for non-critical uses.
