Combining handling attributes of textile rope with a high dead weight, Herkules is especially desired in the commercial fishing sector: for use as bottom-set longlines or trawl warps that effectively dampen shocks thanks to the line’s strong sag. Herkules is also deployed as a mooring line: particularly in instances where flammable cargo could endanger the secure mooring of a vessel
Each Herkules strand boasts a tough core made of steel wire for optimised protection against vandalism and to deliver high strength. It simultaneously ensures the rope has high dimensional stability and sufficient rigidity so that its internal tension provides the netted structure with support. This also means the resistance felt when climbing up or down such structures is predictable. And that means greater safety! Each strand is tightly enveloped with a textile covering to deliver maximum grip with minimised risk for injury. With these characteristics, Herkules has become the underlying constructional component for many types of playground equipment. Gleistein Ropes offers a complete range for the most playful of all rope segments, which is backed up with decades of experience and a genuine fondness for playground equipment!
