1 1/2" Polyester Combo - Spun Fiber - Tan
Weight: 0.55 lb
Looking for a classic tan three strand rope without the rough texture of regular manila rope? Then this product might be just what you need.
This rope is pretty neat. We make it out of spun polyester so it has a soft and supple feel to the rope. Some people might think it is cotton it is so nice.
If you are looking for a great handrail rope for either interior or exterior use then you should absolutely consider this one. Because it is a synthetic, it has a great lifespan and is water and UV resistant.
For interior handrail use this one is tough to beat. It works great with all our rope hardware brackets and looks absolutely fantastic.
We added a tan polypropylene to the inner core strands to lighten up the rope and give it a lighter feel. If you look at the photos above you can see the close up shot of the rope inner strands. Upon closer examination, you can see those tan poly pro fibers in the middle. From the outside however, this is 100% yarn dyed polyester.
This isn’t the strongest rope you can buy, so it’s not the best for towing or lifting. If you need that classic tan rope look however, this one is tough to beat.
Please consider the safe working load for this rope to be 1,200 lbs. when the rope is new.
Customers that want the look of a manila rope but don't want to deal with the roughness might consider this rope as well as Pro Manila for use in their application.
Wherever possible, use splices constructed to safe specifications. A proper splice on a rope can maintain 80% to 100% of the new rope average break strength. Trained personnel should construct all splices. If knots are used on a rope, be aware that they can reduce the rope's strength by up to 50%. If knots are required, be sure to select the proper knot for the job.
All rope has a rating referred to as a "tensile strength" or "average break strength." This number is the amount of weight that the rope should be able to hold in ideal conditions, specifically, a new rope, with no knots or splices, at room temperature. These break strength numbers are based on actual destructive break testing by the manufacturer or a certified third-party testing facility. Ropes are tested over many cycles and the average break strength is determined and specified for the product. We test our ropes personally, and all our splicers have their work tested on an ongoing basis using a certified test bed facility. This is to ensure that their splicing work is perfect, and that their splicing technique and skills are 100% within acceptable splicing guidelines set by the rope industry. Even the best splices and best rope can break if overloaded or used improperly. Make sure you thoroughly understand what you are doing with a rope. Get the right rope for the right job. If you have questions or are even remotely unsure or have doubts. STOP and get the information you need to BE SURE you are doing things safely.
Rope wear, knots, extreme hot or cold temperatures, chemicals, the manner in which the load is applied and other factors will result in a break strength lower than the stated average break strength.
A rope with a stated or advertised break strength, in pounds will not necessarily safely hold something that weighs that amount! Refer to the SAFE WORKING LOAD of a specific rope for more information.
IF IN DOUBT, ASK A PROFESSIONAL. We get calls all the time from people who have questions about what is the best rope to use for any given application. Don't be afraid to ask. Ultimately YOU are responsible for your safety using ANY rope, so don't chance it.
In a broad generalization, most working loads vary from 1/10 to 1/4 of the average break strength of the rope. Applications for rope used in life support or personal fall protection environments must use the 1/10 ratio.
Due to ever changing availability in the fiber used for this rope, both COLOR and TEXTURE of the outer fibers may vary from run to run. If you are curious as to which is available, please feel free to contact us at (419) 873-8300.
