Mooring berthing

Braided mooring line

Composition:

  • Cover – 16-plait polyester braid.
  • Core – 16-plait nylon braid.

Characteristics

Extremely flexible, good handling, easy to splice.

Prestige mooring line

Composition:

  • Cover – 16 or 24-plait polyester braid with additional twisting of the strands.
  • Core – 12 or 16-plait nylon braid..

Characteristics

The cover’s composition means that this line is more flexible and easier to handle.

Braided nylon

Composition:

  • Cover – 8 or 16-plait nylon braid.
  • Core – parallel nylon.

Characteristics

Good flexibility. High resistance. Good abrasion resistance. For mooring, fenders and architecture. Only available in white.

Twisted nylon polymerised

Composition:

  • 3-strand nylon.

Characteristics

Good abrasion and U.V. resistance. Choosing polymerised nylon is highly recommended (fibre stabilisation, flexibility, ease of splicing). Use for mooring, anchoring, tugging, agriculture and different industrial use. Also available unpolymerised. Available in white (black colour on request).

Twisted polyester polymerised

Composition:

  • 3-strand polyester.

Characteristics

Good abrasion and U.V. resistance. Polymerisation is recommended (available only in white) for improved strand stabilisation, better flexibility and easier splicing. Also available unpolymerised.

Braided polyester – 8 strands

Composition:

  • 8-strand, square braid HT polyester.

Characteristics

Good flexibility over time thanks to the polyester’s low retraction. High resistance. Easy to splice. Available in black or white.

Braided nylon – 8 strands

Composition:

  • 8-strand, square braid HT nylon.

Characteristics

Good shock absorption thanks to its high stretch. High resistance. Easy to splice. Available in black or white.
