The Sterling 7/16 11mm HTP Static Rope is a multi-use rescue/rappel rope best used for hauling systems, high traffic expeditions, mountain rescue, military, industrial rope access, and swift-water rescue. Made with 100 polyester static and a 44 carrier kernmantle construction, this rope is beefy, durable and strong. HTP, with its less than 1 stretch per 300-pound load, makes these activities far more time and effort efficient. HTP provides better UV resistance, which is critical for glacier travel, expeditions, and big walls where ropes are exposed to ultra-violet light UV, for long periods of time. Lastly, it retains its suppleness and smooth handling far longer than traditional static ropes, even after repeated use. Since HTP Static is a naturally dry product, your ropes will always stay dry. This maintains performance, strength, and elongation characteristics. HTP ropes should never be used in situations where any potential for shock-loading such as a fall may occur. It will result in very high impact forces. In these situations, a nylon static or dynamic rope would be more appropriate. Note: Tracer colors in the ropes may vary.
