11mm Kernmantel Rope.

Ridgegear research engineers are continuously developing innovative solutions, which make their ropes excellent for all industry applications.

  • In the coating finish process the individual rope fibres are refined through a Teflon coating.
  • Through this the friction between the fibres is minimised and its glide ability is improved.
  • The loading, through a fall, is distributed evenly on all yarns, every individual filament (finest element) contributes to the optimum performance.
  • This enables us to distribute ropes which are considerably lighter, or ropes which can withstand considerably higher loads with the same weight.
