The BLUE OCEAN STATIC is NEW to Marlow’s Rope Access range. Made from 100% Blue Ocean yarn, this eco-conscious innovative rope solution is NFPA and CE certified. Ideal for rope access, abseiling and work positioning.
Due to its Polyester construction the Blue Ocean® Static has significantly lower elongation than an equivalent Nylon rope. This means more accurate positioning with less bouncing about, less fatigue (less of the climber’s energy is used in stretching the rope), less ‘drop’ if a climber’s weight transitions from a working rope to a low stretch backup and less wear on the rope due to movement through hardware. Care should be taken to ensure the rope is used for work positioning only.
This rope is not designed for fall arrest. When used as a backup rope a suitable energy absorber should be incorporated in the system to prevent the risk of high dynamic loads being developed.
