DYNAMICA SUPREME is a 12 strand braided DYNAMICA rope with a polyester (PES) braided cover. The purpose of the cover is to protect the rope to ensure a longer lifetime. This construction is, for example, a good choice if the rope is regularly exposed to abrasion. It is possible to braid a cover for the entire rope, but the cover can also be used on specific areas, where the rope is particularly exposed.
Safety: DYNAMICA SK78 vs. DYNAMICA SUPREME PES (Polyester Cover)
Besides protecting the rope, the SUPREME cover also provides a safer working environment. If the rope should break because of overload, the polyester cover will make sure that the backlash is not causing any danger, since the rope would break inside the cover that has a function like a shield.
The video below illustrates the safety feature of a standard DYNAMICA rope without a cover and a DYNAMICA SUPREME with a polyester braided cover when it breaks. The standard rope (DYNAMICA SK78) has a backlash that can harm people and/or surroundings when it breaks. Although the standard DYNAMICA rope can be dangerous if overloaded, it is nothing compared with a steel wire rope that is extremely dangerous if it breaks. DYNAMICA SUPREME is safer, since the polyester braided cover functions like a shield if the rope breaks.
