One-stop shop for fibre and steel wire ropes for tug, towing and mooring applications
With a renewed focus on safety in the tug and towing industry Lankhorst is committed to providing the equipment, like hawser, towing line and pennant, required to ensure the safety of crews and tugs. Lankhorst Ropes offers a range of proven equipment which increase on-board safety while reducing cost per tow. They include the Lanko®nect fibre rope connection, Strongline™ towing and mooring rope, Defender® high performance protective sleeve for hawser, towing line and pennant and KO-LINK towing ring.
The Lanko®nect is a synthetic fibre rope connection for the main tow line that replaces a conventional cow hitch, shackle or similar hardware, providing tug operators with a quicker and safer connection during towing. It enables a new approach to tow line assembly by allowing tug operators to set a calculated breaking force for the tow line configuration. Moreover, the small Lanko®nect knot provides smoother line movement, as well as easier handling, compared to a conventional and large bulky knot.
