Why choose Dynamica Gliding ropes?

If you need a gliding rope that is a safer, lighter and strong alternative to steel wire rope.

Dynamica Gliding ropes are manufactured with continuous endless lengths and a core that makes them compact and dimensionally stable. They are impregnated and heat-stretched giving them excellent spooling abilities on any type of winch.

By shifting from steel to Dynamica Gliding ropes, you gain:

  • Lighter handling without comprimising on the strength of the glider

  • Safer handling, no danger of injuries

  • A comfortable take-off due to stiff construction

  • Extra height

  • A compact and dimensionally stable rope

  • A custom-made rope with excellent spooling abilities

  • No corrosion or soiling caused by rope grease

What is the breaking strength & weight of Dynamica Gliding ropes?

Dynamica Gliding ropes are manufactured with HMPE/Dyneema® making them as strong as steel while being up to 10 times lighter.

Our customer's who replace their steel gliding rope with Dynamica Gliding rope gain extra height because of the decreased weight.

What is the elongation of Dynamica Gliding ropes?

Dynamica Gliding ropes have a similar elongation pattern as steel wire ropes because of the elongation of only 3-4 %.

Eventhough we heat-stretch the gliding ropes, you will experience elongation when first using the glider due to constructional elongation. After some launches, the rope will become length stable.

When launching with Dynamica Gliding ropes, you will also experience a more comfortable take-off due to the stiff construction.

In case of break, the gliding rope's low mass and elongation results in the energy being distributed along the rope’s entire length in a linear fashion with a relatively low recoil. Whereas, steel wire is known for lashing out endangering people and equipment.

Is Dynamica Gliding ropes rotation free?

Dynamica Gliding ropes has a 12 strand braided construction which is 100 % rotation free.

However, it is important to avoid rotating the rope during spooling; the rotated rope will lose its strength and this creates risk of failure, as this disturbes the construction.

Do & don’t

To take full advantage of your rope, do not use it over rusty surfaces and sharp edges as this can lead to cuts, abrasion abuse and splice damages.

Avoid driving over the gliding rope with vehicles or spooling devices as the pressure on the rope against asphalt/stones can damage the fibres and cause risk of failure.

Cleaning the gliding rope prolongs its service life. If mud and sand penetrates the rope, it will with time start to act as sandpaper. Remove dirt dirt by hose down your rope with water at law pressure.

When the rope is not in use, store it in the shadow.

How to cover & protect the Gliding ropes?

Dynamica Gliding ropes are protected by a special DSC coating and heat-stretching proces. This impregnation locks the fibres and prevents dirt from penetrating the rope.

On request, we can fit your gilding rope with a cover.

What to look for while inspecting Dynamica Gliding ropes?

Regular inspections ensure a long service life and keep the total cost of ownership down.

Inspect your rope before every operation looking for the following signs:
• Splice damage
• Construction damage
• Abrasion
• Inconsistent diameter
