General Use Ropes


Double Braided Nylon Ropes

Strongest double braid general purpose rope available. Made from Hi-Tenacity tire cord nylon yarns. This rope is a balanced construction and thus non-rotational and torque free. Very good abrasion resistance. The rope will stretch about 20%, allowing it to absorb shock action (such as wave action). Resistant to rot, mildew, oils, gas and most chemicals. Very good UV resistance. Loses about 5% of its strength when wet.

Double Braided Polyester Ropes

Very strong double braid general purpose rope. Made from Hi-Tenacity tire cord polyester yarns. This rope is a balanced construction and thus non-rotational and torque free. Excellent abrasion resistance. The rope will stretch about 15%, allowing it to absorb some shock action. Resistant to rot, mildew, oils, gas and most chemicals. Excellent UV resistance. No strength loss when wet.

Benefits of our Double Braids :

Braided evenly with uniform cross section.
Absorption of energy is many times greater than natural fiber ropes of the same size like manila or sisal.
More flexible than conventional Hawser Laid (twisted) ropes.
Flexibility is maintained at lower as well as higher temperatures.
Very strong especially under snatch conditions.
Recover well after extension.
Better grip handling & do not kink
Nylon Double Braids Manufactured to BIS Specification IS-12733-1989 & BS 4928-1985.

Sea worthy ropes must be able to withstand the elements, including moisture, the sun's rays and in some cases, salt or even freezing rain. Sailboat lines made from durable, high-quality materials can help ensure greater satisfaction, whether the voyage is a pleasure cruise or a highly competitive race.

That’s why we sell carefully-selected sailboat sheets featuring trusted braiding or weaving techniques. For example, double-braid polyester line is an excellent choice for jib, spinnaker and main halyards.

The type of sailing you’re planning also affects the choice of rope. For example, for day sailing, double-braid polyester should be adequate for most boats.


Most modern ropes are made of two components – a core that takes the bulk of the load, accounting for up to 95 per cent of the rope’s strength, and a protective outer cover that provides abrasion resistance, protection from sunlight and so on. In the past the cover was also responsible for improving handling and comfort, but for performance boats this is now often sacrificed in favour of a small performance benefit. Some lines are used without a cover, particularly high-strength control lines, but these will normally have a coating that improves handling characteristics and provides some protection against ultra-violet radiation.

In racing only four or five major fibres are used for rope, which may be blended together in different ways to produce lines that are optimised for each function. Polyester is the most common single material.

Our ropes sheets will take you where you want to go..

Double Braid Polyester line : is definitively the most popular lines out there. Extremely durable and easy to splice, is the best choice for cruising sailboats. It will handle medium to high loads of Polyester and Nylon sails at the best price per meter.

Properties of rope fibres

Material Stretch Typical Use
medium to high
lightweight floating line used for man overboard recovery and occasionally as core for lightweight sheets on small boats. Poor UV resistance.
Nylon very high anchor rode
Polyester fairly high / moderate docklines, cruising halyards and sheets, low load control lines
UHMWPE and  other aramids very low halyards, sheets and control lines for dinghies and larger raceboats

Our Products

They are made to each of our customers individual specifications. We also weave military specification webbings and commercial versions of military specifications.

Broken yarn filaments

This indicates the use of poorly maintained machinery or lack of yarn finish. This defect will result in lower strength (because a portion of the rope is already broken), greater stretch, premature wear and more rapid degradation.

High or low strands

This indicates the use of poorly maintained machinery or lack of yarn finish. This defect will result in lower strength (because a portion of the rope is already broken), greater stretch, premature wear and more rapid degradation.

Looped strands

This defect is usually caused by unequal yarn tensioning in the manufacturing process and results in the same problems as mentioned above.

Strand twist

All braided ropes should be constructed using clockwise and counter-clockwise twisted strands (referred to as “S” twist and “Z” twist in the trade). The reason for this design is to orient all of the fine yarn filaments parallel to the longitudinal axis of the rope allowing them to be combed rather than plucked, snagged and broken when dragged over a rough surface as they would be if they were at an angle or were at an angel or perpendicular to the axis of rope.

Properly Rope Size Selection

It is important for a rope to maintain the proper size while under load. Undersized rope presents less surface area to winch and sheave surfaces thereby requiring less yarn to bear more load. Undersized rope may require more wraps to develop the same holding power on a winch. This is especially true when the rope is wet or used in self-tailers. Undersize rope may perform poorly in various cam cleats and halyard stoppers. Check the weight per meter specifications to compare sizes of ropes made with similar materials.


There is no reason to accept rope from a manufacturer with grease or oil spots. While it may not seriously affect performance, it is an indication of lack of commitment of quality and inspection.


Removal of Rope from Coils
Uncoil from inside to prevent kinking
Never stand in line with rope under tension. Recoil under rope failure leads to physical injury.
Never overload a rope.
Avoid ropes showing signs of ageing & wear.
Discard rope if :
Sheath is extremely worn.
Rope has been subjected to extreme loads.
Rope is very dirty & dirt remains after washing.
Sheath shows damage & core visible.
