Our products conform to international classification regulations. Our wide range of mooring ropes includes both general polypropylene, polyester and nylon ropes as well as the next generation of high-strength ropes manufactured from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene fibres. These technologically advanced ropes offer superior strength to traditional steel wire moorings.
With our wealth of experience and knowledge, we are uniquely placed to provide excellent technical support, including guidance on the best product for a specific application. When it comes to the design, development and engineering of bespoke rope products, rest assured that our dedicated rope team has worked at the cutting edge of mooring technology for many years. Whatever the requirement, our commitment is to provide customers with a quality solution that meets individual needs.
The ultra-light and very strong pennants are developed for use in the maritime market in order to offer a safer, hand-friendly and low-risk alternative to steel wire strops, chains or traditional synthetic ropes. These materials are heavy, inflexible, difficult to rig and dangerous if they break. They require many deckhands and additional equipment for handling and rigging.
Use of mooring ropes
Lines (or cables) used to secure a ship at a berth. Mooring ropes should be arranged as symmetrically as possible about the midship point of the ship. We advise mooring ropes made of polyester. Polypropylene is sometimes also used for mooring lines. This material has poor UV resistance, poor abrasion resistance and a limited strength. It is cheaper than polyester and floats.
