This design, exclusively from BlueWater, utilizes a sheath construction ratio of 50% Technora and 50% polyester. 100% Nylon core strands. The Technora provides the necessary fire resistant properties while the polyester provides high visibility. Technora has the highest heat resistance of any aramid available today. Better fiber flex fatigue resistance makes it the ideal choice over aramids of the past. The hybrid sheath operates in a very controllable and smooth manner in descent devices designed for small (sub 9.4 mm diameter) ropes.
UL Classified to meet NFPA 1983/2017 edition standards for Escape Ropes.
