To protect the main rope against abrasion, a cover can be added to increase the lifetime of the rope. Dynamica Ropes is manufacturing a range of different standard covers, which are listed below.
The SUPREME cover is braided with polyester (PES) whereas SUPERIOR D and ORBIT are braided with Dyneema®. REFLECTA cover makes the rope visible in the dark and the Dual Lock cover makes it easy to examine the condition of the main rope because of the open/close function. Read much more about the different covers, the construction, and how they are impregnated by the following links:
Depending on the purpose of the rope, it can be advantageous to overbraid the entire rope, or only certain areas of the rope, which are particularly exposed to abrasion. In cases where DYNAMICA ropes are used for tugging, the part of the rope that is running through the opening of the tugboat is often protected with a cover, but the rest of the rope is not. In other cases, the entire rope/sling is exposed to abrasion, which can mean that overbraiding the entire rope is the best choice.
Furthermore, it is an option to add thimbles, soft eye terminations, or a secure and long-lasting termination of DYNAMICA covers called Snaketail. There is a range of different options when it comes to terminations.
Take a look at some of the rope and cover terminations here.
