Our narrowly woven rope sheaths ensure excellent protection against abrasion. Dirt and rock particles, among other destructive debris, are no match for the high-density ropes made by SALEWA. Our core yarns are head-seat in a unique stabilization process heat-bonded. This production process ensures sturdiness, the stability of shape, and durability so that even after long-term usage, our ropes still meets the highest requirements.
The direction of use:
Although the UIAA and CE assure the highest testing standards, it is important to practice intelligent protection techniques to minimize the chances of rope breakage. Consider protection and runner length carefully to prevent ropes from running over sharp edges. Stones falling onto the rope or people stepping on it significantly shorten the lifespan. It is the responsibility of the climber to behave according to the prevailing situation.
Rope lifespan: General guidelines
- Professional use/guides: 3 months – 1 year
- Regular weekend use: 1-2 years
- Occasional use (once in 8 weeks): 2-4 years
- If there is any doubt about whether your rope is durable and in good working order, it should be always replaced.
It is the user’s responsibility to inspect the rope before every use. Retire the rope immediately if:
- The sheath is extremely fuzzy.
- Sheath abrasion allows the core to be visible.
- Lumpy, hard or brittle spots occur.
- The rope has an hourglass shape.
- The rope is exposed to alkalines, oxidizing agents, bleaches or acids or other harmful chemicals.
- The rope has been subjected to unusually high loads or falls.
Storage: Store all ropes ina cool dry place away from heat, excessive moisture, humidity and exposure to UV or/and any chemicals which can reduce the lifespan of the rope.
Chemicals: Protect your rope from contact with chemicals that contain alkalines, oxidizing agents, bleaches or/and acids. Always store your rope in a rope bag to protect it.
