12 strand braided rope, made of Dyneema® yarns. LANKO®FORCE is an excellent alternative for heavy and lumbersome steel wire ropes in situations requiring manual handling of the rope. It is stronger than conventional steel wire rope, yet the corresponding weight is 7 times lower. The improved handling characteristics are especially suitable for towing and mooring applications. Another important benefit of LANKO®FORCE is that the rope is floating. Moreover, when replacing fibre rope, the reduction in rope diameter can lead to substantial savings in the weight and size of the mooring winches, for example, when incorporated in the design of a new build vessel the cost saving is substantial.
