Ease of handling, and rope safety are the trademark of Lankhorst Ropes as shown by Lankhorst’s award winning innovations, the A3 splice and anti-snap back braided jacket. The A3 splice makes ropes easier to handle as there is no doubling of the rope at the splice and has 100% efficiency meaning there is no loss of strength as a result of splicing the rope. A non-loadbearing braided jacket brings several benefits including protecting the rope from abrasion and minimising the chance of snapback, increasing the safety of the vessel’s passengers and crew.
Manufactured in the EU using the latest in-house yarn extrusion and rope production techniques, rope construction is optimised to suit the application. All Lankhorst ropes are manufactured from premium materials, tested to OCIMF recommendations, and offer full rope traceability. Moreover, as a leading rope manufacturer we work closely with our suppliers such as DSM Dyneema, to ensure the highest quality standards from raw materials, through manufacture, delivery and installation of the finished rope.
Consistent rope performance is vital during mooring and towing. Using Lankhorst ropes, vessel operators are assured that their ropes are made with the greatest materials consistency to provide the same elongation, and service life, enabling more efficient rope management and supply through Lankhorst Ropes’ extensive global stock point network. In this way, the risk of mixed mooring is eliminated.
