Kernmaster Original Static Rope 100m
YALE Kernmaster Original Static Rope
KERNMASTER is a performance 11.0mm static line with a unique construction of a 48-strand polyester cover and a braided nylon core. The blend of polyester and nylon helps provide a greater range of chemical resistance over traditional 100% nylon constructed lines.
The braided core bends more easily offering less fatiguing which makes for a better knotable line and better control through mechanical ascent/descent devices, as well as increased strength. In the event of a cover failure, the rope core will remain intact, allowing the user to ascend/descend over the core to get back to a stable portion of rope. Very few life rescue lines offer users a braided core technology.
The core undergoes steam stabilization during manufacture which enhances the lines flexibility and prevents hardening during service.
KERNMASTER polyester cover repels water far more readily than a traditional 100% nylon constructed line; this rapidly reduces drying time of the line as the polyester fiber used in the cover are non-hydroscopic. The ability of the outer sheaf to shed water reduces the capability of it becoming stiff when wet, allowing it to run through mechanical devices with ease.
YALE Cordage Kernmaster is CE Certified to BS EN1891:1998 Standard Type A
