Hand Lines

For the Utility and Industrial Industries

Hand Lines

Hand lines can be made with Braided hand line rope or twisted hand line rope. Braided Utility Hand Line is made with polyester and polypropylene giving this rope high strength, low stretch, good abrasion resistance and is easily spliced. The single braid construction makes this rope non-rotational and good flexibility.

Twisted hand line rope is made with an orange tracer added for high visibility. This rope is made with 100% high quality polyester. This rope has a four stage construction giving it high strength and low stretch as well as good knot holding.

  • Working load: 20 – 25%

Applications: Hand Line, Block Line

Industries served: Industrial, Utility

Uses: Designed for utility hand lines and block lines.

Color: Oranger tracer

Double Locking Snap
12 Strand Hand Line

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.
