Rope



What is a Static Rope? The term static rope is a generic description and sometimes misleading. Static ropes do actually have some elongation. Static ropes are utilized in many areas of rope access, rescue and recreational climbing. The term static rope encompasses a variety of rope constructions and materials. Certain standards make the distinction between low stretch and static kernmantle ropes because some applications require some level of impact absorption, but not the high elongation of a dynamic rope. Some applications of rope rescue require no stretch or a very low level of elongation to provide themost efficient system. Our HTP Static™ is designed for applications where a very low level of elongation is desired, while the nylon SuperStatic™ is more suitable for circumstances that could demand impact absorption. Static ropes are generally used in rescues, rigging, rappelling, ascending, mechanical advantage/haul systems, fall restraint, and travel restraint applications.

What makes ropes Dynamic? Dynamic ropes are designed with the intention of absorbing impact that may result from a lead climbing fall. When a climber falls a well-balanced rope will stop the fall in the shortest distance, while also lessening the impact felt by the climber and reducing force on equipment. As mentioned in the construction section, dynamic ropes have much higher levels of twist in the sheath and core yarns creating mechanical elongation to act like a spring absorbing the energy created during a fall. A careful balance is needed in rope construction to create a rope that will catch the fall with minimal impact, yet not be so stretchy as to allow the climber to hit a ledge or ground.
