Nylon Rope - 3 Strand 3" x 600' (ROP-CON 315250)
Choosing a Rope: Always consult the manufacturer before using rope when personal safety or possible damage to property is involved. Make sure the rope is adequate for the job. Do not use too small a rope or the wrong type. Specifications are available from Hytopz or the manufacturer, which gives the strength and recommended working loads for various sizes and constructions of hard fiber and synthetic rope.
Dynamic Loading: Whenever a load is picked up, stopped, moved or swung, there is an increased force due to dynamic loading. The more rapidly or suddenly such actions occur, the greater this increase will be. In extreme cases, the force put on the rope may be two, three, or even more times the normal load involved; for instance, when picking up a tow on a slack line or using a rope to stop a falling object. Therefore, in all such applications as towing lines, life lines, safety lines, climbing ropes, etc., design factors must reflect the added risks involved.
Users should be aware that dynamic effects are greater on a low-elongation rope such as manila than on a high-elongation rope such as nylon and greater on a shorter rope than a longer one. The range of design factors given contains provision for very modest dynamic loads. This means that the load must be handled slowly and smoothly to minimize dynamic effects.
Twisted: Also known as Laid Rope. Just about all laid rope is 3-strand construction. It is spliceable and is available in virtually every type of rope fiber. This is the most common rope construction for general purpose use.
Nylon: This material is known for its elasticity and tremendous shock absorbing qualities. It has good abrasion resistance, is rot proof, resists oil, gasoline, and most chemicals. It has good resistance to UV rays. Nylon will last 4-5 times longer than natural fibers.
