ABC STATIC ROPES: LM Static ropes are a rare example of innovation in static ropes today. We make our Static lines completely of Polyester. This greatly reduces the stretch while increasing strength, UV resistance, and durability. The high density of the sheath is also extremely abrasion resistant. Also, the polyester is hydrophobic by nature, meaning that these ropes absorb very little water, making them ideal in wet situations. If that were not enough, our new Response lines are preshrunk to reduce any shrinkage in the field. The Response Static ropes meet or exceed UIAA and NFPA standards.
