Soft on the outside yet hard inside: The textile surface ensures a firm grip and reduces the risk of injury. Meanwhile, its inner laid rope construction with wire strands provides exceptional strength, a durable form and optimal protection against vandalism. Despite originally being developed for the fishing industry, Herkules has become the premier choice for use in children's playgrounds.
A life may depend on it. That's why all attributes including strength, dampening characteristics and handling must be dependably reproducible. Additionally, the ropes must be perfectly aligned to harmonise with the fittings and systems being used. The requirements are defined through international standards. Gleistein is the leader in this field.
While most ropes are primarily made to carry loads, roller lappings are specially designed to withstand high pressure. Their square cross-section provides extra stability and lets them be tightly wound onto rollers through which textile fibres - chiefly wool - are forced during washing processes. GeoRolap is available in a range of materials and material blends.
A core of parallel elastomer monofilaments is pre-tensioned and covered in a braid of high-strength fibres. This protects the centre from potential damage caused by abrasion, UV rays and overexpansion. Shock cords are employed in many fields including transportation safety devices and various types of sporting equipment.
It is no surprise that protective techniques for the treatment of trees are nowadays running rings around other, more invasive, forms of tree care. The method demands fewer materials, less time and lower costs. Always at centre stage is the tree surgeon - or arborist: with his knowledge, skill and most importantly the professional ropes at his disposal.
Precisely-defined stretch, optimal handling, durable surfaces and plenty of reserves in terms of strength - always and ever, even after years. Climbing ropes must be dependable day in, day out. Various types are available to correspond with different applications. From static and dynamic ropes to accessory cords, Gleistein has the lot.
While cables are heavy, cable pulling ropes are light! Used as hauling lines during the construction of high-voltage power line pylons, they avoid the necessity for additional heavy machinery, and thereby costs, as the final electrical cables are subsequently simply pulled through. Various solutions are available: from light-as-a-feather Dyneema lines to economical polypropylene ropes.
Back to nature... Gleistein produces highest quality hemp and flax ropes in accordance with German industry norm DIN EN 1261. Ropes made from natural fibres have retained an important role in diverse niches to this day including use for handrails, as climbing ropes in gyms and playgrounds, hauling lines in theatres and naturally for traditional sailing vessels.
Whenever actors, props or even whole sets leave the sure footing of the ground, ropes provide necessary support and safety. Depending on the job at hand, the required rope attributes will usually focus on either high strength and precision, on handling or allround qualities. Gleistein boasts a carefully selected range of ropes for the special requirement of film sets and theatre stages all around the world. Curtain up!
