Something big is on the horizon

“Breaking” news from the Gleistein Ropes R&D department

A new Gleistein Ropes product breakthrough is looming: initial trials at our state-of-the-art Rope Testing Laboratory in Bremen have shown some amazing initial results during tests of a brand new construction-type for thick ropes. This latest innovation from the Gleistein R&D department boasts significant increases in effectiveness. It allows higher break loads to be achieved with the same material input to subsequently enable thinner, lighter lines to be produced with unchanged tensile strength. Check out the video of the 96mm Polyester line in the rope lab tensile testing machine and wait for the break – at a load well over 200t! Full details on this sensational world first will be revealed at SMM Hamburg in September. Stay tuned!
