Marine industry

Working with wire ropes is very demanding and often dangerous, but their use is still common in the marine industry. In contrast, textile ropes stand out for their strength and at the same time flexibility, durability and low weight. They are easier to use and above all safer. HMPE marine rope, which is made of innovative high-strength textile material, can fully replace steel rope, making the work easier and reducing the risk of damage to both health and property .

Factors such as UV radiation, exposure to abrasion, uneven loading or exposure to chemicals can reduce the rope’s life. Therefore, it is important to choose it according to its use and the influences it will be exposed to. At LANEX, all ropes are developed and tested for the most efficient use.

Marine ropes are divided according to the number of strands into:

  • 12 and 8 strand - strong and durable ropes ideal for the marine industry (sea-going ships, transporting materials and people, mining activities on the open sea). The 12 strand rope has a rounder shape and is more resistant to abrasion.
  • 4 and 3 strand - suitable mainly for smaller boats and for fishing.

When creating an anchor assembly, we recommend using anchor loops and lugs. Thanks to their elasticity, they absorb shocks and thus protect the primary anchor rope. Forming knots on the rope reduces its strength by up to 55%. Have a fixed eye spliced on the rope, which will only reduce the strength by 10%. Stressed areas can be strengthened by adding protection.

Handling heavy cargo, whether in ports or on the high seas, can be dangerous. High-strength textile loops used when lifting loads can fully replace steel ropes, thanks to their properties and extreme strength.

Safety is very important when working on ships and in ports. That's why at you will find a range of certified and tried-and-tested protective equipment including harnesses, carabiners, fall arresters and helmets.
