Tougher than ever: Gleistein Ropes to present innovative rope construction-type alternative and more at SMM 2016 in Hamburg

A whole world of state-of-the-art solutions for the commercial marine industry

Visitors to the Gleistein Ropes stand at this year’s SMM in Hamburg can look forward to witnessing a world first. The SMM (Shipbuilding, Machinery & Marine Technology) is the world’s leading international maritime trade fair and will host the first public presentation of a new type of rope construction developed by the Gleistein R&D department, which is already demonstrating sensational resilience in initial tests. Also sure to spark sizeable interest will be our pioneering FLX Mooring System – a mooring solution for large vessels that boasts maximum strength, easiest handling and astounding lifetime cost-efficiency. On show too will be the revamped design of several rope types including our family of ultra-high performance X-Twin and X-Mooring lines. Also wanting to share the limelight at the fair is our tough, ready-made GeoMooring Tail stretcher, which has been beefed up another notch with a new cover fibre mix making it more resilient against abrasion. In addition, visitors to the Gleistein trade fair stand can be the first to get their hands on the latest Gleistein Ropes GeoMarine catalogue, incorporating these and all the other innovative Gleistein rope solutions for the commercial marine industry.

SMM Hamburg 2016 opens its doors 6-9 September 2016 at the Hamburg Fair grounds. The Gleistein Ropes booth is located in Hall A1, Stand 424.
