The 16mm (5/8”) Atlas rigging line offers an MBS of 18,000 lbs but still keeps the performance and handling of the thinner-diameter ropes in the series. Like other ropes in the Atlas series, it has a redesigned double-braid construction that provides a huge increase in overall strength. The new core has lowered the static elongation but still allows rope to absorb energy/impact force and can limit peak forces when catching wood in negative rigging applications. The tightly braided polyester sheath resists picking, and protects the core without sacrificing handling and flexibility. The 16mm (5/8”), along with the other diameters in the Atlas series are ideal for use in a Port-a-Wrap, capstan winch or rigging blocks. The Atlas is spliceable or can be ordered with a sewn eye for knotless rigging.
