Columbian Non-Revolving Ski-Tow Rope

SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR ROPE TOW SKI AREAS

Safety is a key requirement in ski tow ropes. The natural tendency of ropes to revolve under tension introduces an element of danger in standard lay construction ropes. A revolving rope can catch gloves, parkas, sweaters and scarves. Columbian’s ski tow ropes in 8-strand construction are specially constructed to offer a non-revolving line. The special construction offers high resistance to the severe abrasive wear of dragging over snow and ice in addition to the non-revolving factor. Columbian’s PD110 is truly the finest fiber ski tow rope. White in color, a combination of polyester and polyethylene filament gives light weight, long wear, excellent abrasive resistance and low external and internal wear. It will not fuse on the sheaves nor freeze-up. It is rot proof. Order in required lengths in either 1” or 1 1/8” diameter.

  Diameter Circumference   Approximate Breaking  
      Weight Strength  
P/D 110 1 3 24 14,000  
8-strand 1 1/8 3 1/2 30 18,000  
*No Standard stock length – available in lengths specified.  
           
Many uses of rope involve serious risk of injury to personnel or damage to
valuable property. This danger is often obvious, as when a heavy load is
supported above one or more workmen. An equally dangerous situation
occurs if personnel are in line with a rope under excessive tension. Should
the rope fail, it may recoil with considerable force - especially if the rope
is nylon. Persons should be warned against standing in line with the rope. In
all cases where any such risks are present, or there is any question about
the loads involved or the conditions of use, the working load should be 
substantially reduced and the rope properly inspected.  
           
NOTE: Lb/600ft. Shown are average figures with a variation of +/- 5% of 
the figure shown.        
           
New rope tensile strengths are based on tests of new rope, tested according
to Cordage Institute specifications - that is, a straight tensile test at slow speed
using eye-spliced test pieces.
