STRONGLINE™ has a rope construction comprising a parallel core with a braided protective cover. The parallel core produces a far higher strength rope than might be expected for a rope of this diameter and material. The protective cover ensures a long service life due to its excellent resistance against abrasion. Regular maintenance can significantly lengthen the rope service life. The main applications of STRONGLINE™ are towing and mooring. A major advantage of using STRONGLINE™ for mooring your product or crude carrier is that there is no requirement for mooring tails. This means a major cost and hassle reduction over the life of the vessel. No need for tail replacement every 18 months.
When STRONGLINE™ is installed on a towing winch, twists in the rope during installation can reduce the service life of the rope once put to work. To prevent twisting, it is crucial to use a turning table for unwinding from a coil. To facilitate the installation and avoiding induced twisting, a longitudinal marking has been added to the STRONGLINE™ during manufacture. Please make sure the longitudinal marking line is always on the same position while winding up the STRONGLINE™ on your towing winch.
