Polyester Powerline Rope

For the Utility and Industrial Industries

Polyester Powerline Rope

Powerline is made with 100% high quality polyester. This rope is coated with a urethane coating giving great abrasion resistance. Powerline uses the 50 second splice (eye splice or end to end). This rope has very low stretch and high strength.

  • Working load: 20 – 25%

Applications: Barge tie up lines, pilot winders, tension stringing equipment, block and general rigging lines.

Industries served: Utility, Industrial

Uses: Stringing lines, hand lines, winch lines, lock lines, breast lines and heaving lines

 

Color: Orange

Rope Safety Considerations

New Rope Tensile Strengths: New rope tensile strengths are based on tests in accordance with ASTM Test Method D-4268 on new and unused rope in laboratory condition.

Working Loads: Working loads are for rope in good condition with approximate splices, in non-critical applications, under normal service conditions. Working loads should be exceeded only with expert knowledge of conditions and professional estimates of risk. Working loads should be reduced where life, limb, or valuable property is involved, or for exceptional service conditions such as shock loads, sustained loads, etc.

The Cordage Institute specifies that the Safe Working Load of rope shall be determined by dividing the Minimum Tensile Strength by the Safety Factor. Safety factors range from 5 to 12 for non-critical uses.
