3 Strand Manillo Polypropylene Line
|Lbs per 100' (2)||Min Breaking Load in lbs. (3)||Working Load Ratio (4)|
|1/4"||6||1.15||1,125||5-12 to 1|
|5/16"||8||1.8||1,710||5-12 to 1|
|3/8"||12||2.6||2,430||5-12 to 1|
- Linear Density is considered average weight per 100'. Tolerances: 3/16" - 5/16" diameters inclusive +plus or -minus 10%; 3/8" - 9/16" inclusive +plus or -minus 18%; and 5/8" and up +plus or -minus 5%.
- New rope Minimum Breaking Strength is based on data from a number of manufacturers and represents a value of 2 standard deviations below the mean, established by regression analysis.
- For critical applications where life or limb of Dynamic Loading is present, use the higher ration division. Example: 10,000 pounds/12 = 833 pounds working load ratio
Hi Chuck, I thought you might like to see what I did with my most recent order from Duckworks. I'm making traditional boat fenders out of the Manillo rope I ordered.
Still working out the proportions. This one is a bit skinny, but it's getting there.
