When we first introduced the HTP lineup—the first 100% polyester static ropes on the market—the reaction could best be described as skeptical. There was no precedent for using it in high-impact, industrial rope applications. A few years later, HTP are some of the most sought-after static ropes available, for many rope access, rescue or tactical applications. This popularity is because of the HTP’s many advantageous qualities thanks not only to its polyester material, but also to the construction methodology we devised to extract the most from this material: an exacting core construction for strength and unique sheath for handling. The result is solid resistance to water, chemicals, UV and abrasion and great overall handling and gear compatibility.
