In order to preserve the properties of the product and to avoid premature failures, the average working load of ropes in good conditions should not exceed 20% of the rated breaking loads.


The product should never get in contact with sharp edges or rough surfaces when loaded. All the equipment (pulley, winches, drums...) should be periodically inspected and kept in good conditions in order to avoid damages to the rope.


Do not use rope that shows signs of aging and wear. When the fibers show wear in any given area, the rope should be re-spliced, downgraded, or replaced to avoid the risk of injuries to thing and/or person.


Never stand close to a rope under tension. In case of failure the rope can recoil with very high energy and cause serious injuries and damage.


Ropes wear excessively through chaffing and abrasion if they are worked in the same position for long time. Check the ropes load bearing areas or “hot spot” and alter their position on a regular basis. Load bearing “hot spots” include: Halyard Sheaves, Turning Blocks, Cleats, Fairleads, Genoa Cars, Ratchets, Stoppers and Swivels.


All the products listed in the present lists, are meant for yachting and sport use only. Any other use of the ropes, even if apparently possible or reasonable, is prohibited.




Ropes should be stored in dark dry place avoiding direct exposure to UV rays.


Please keep away from all chemicals.


Salt crystals are naturally abrasive and will affect the life and efficiency of ropes; Please soak them in fresh warm water to avoid this.


Never store ropes on concrete or dirty floors, as dirt and grit picked up by the ropes can work into the strands cutting the inside fibres, leading to damaged ropes and equipment.


Please keep away from extreme temperatures.


Ropes can be washed in a washing machine on a gentle cycle with mild detergent.


After the use, avoid dispersing ropes in natural environment. Discard with urban waste.
