Material Specification

We highly recommend the use of Braided Nylon Rope, due to its specially woven structure, which produces a durable and extremely soft covering.  We also offer Polypropylene Split Film (PPSF), for basic product specification & Multifilament Polypropylene / PP-Multi (MFP), for a softer feel, designed specifically for the playground & leisure environment.  For Cone Climbers we only use 16mm braided nylon, and for our Activity Pyramid Nets we use 18mm Braided Nylon.

Our 16mm ropes have a minimum safe working load of 4500kg, whilst that of our 18mm steel core ropes exceeds 9000kg. The physical breaking load of these ropes has been laboratory tested at over double the figures quoted, proving their tensile strength is more than adequate for playground environments.
