Sterling Rope, Cord, Webbing, Bags and Accessories for Rescue and Climbing
Sterling’s SuperStatic rope is engineered to be the best handling and top performing static rope on the market. The SuperStatic ropes have a perfectly balanced construction that allows them to be used in a multitude of work and rescue applications. Sterling’s HTP all-polyester ropes offer significant advantages over nylon static ropes in many applications. With less than 1% stretch per 300-pound load, the need to pre-tension is less, reducing the loads on high lines and tracklines as well as the time to set up. The HTP has superior strength and handling due to the unique and finely tuned sheath and twisted core construction. Even after extensive use, the HTP and the nylon SuperStatic remains supple and easy to use. For tower erection and maintenance, transmission line rescue, and work at height uses, the HTP offers low electrical conductivity, and greater resistance from UV and certain chemicals. As polyester is a naturally dry fiber, the HTP resists moisture and maintains its high strength characteristics even in wet conditions. The HTP is compatible with devices like the 540 belay device, Tuf Tug, Tractel, MIO and Petzl rope grabs making this the right rope for a variety of technical rope applications.
For the WorkPro, we developed an entirely new approach to rope construction—one that makes for balanced elongation in the core and sheath so they share the load evenly. This makes the WorkPro stronger than other 11 mm ropes of similar construction while retaining a small but important amount of elongation.
Search kits are an integral tool for fire departments performing large area search. We’ve revamped our offerings to include 3 options. The newest kit, the FDNY Search Kit, was built to the exacting specifications of FDNY. This large area search kit comes with conical distance indicators every 25 feet to indicate distance and direction to the exit. The 200 feet of rope is package in a sturdy vinyl bag with quick release shoulder strap and has a large snaphook sewn to the end for easy attachment to a stationary object.
Based on the FDNY configuration, this kit offers a top down rescue option for firefighters or civilians who may be stranded at a window during a structure fire. The 100% Technora H3 Tech125 offers the best heat resistance of Sterling’s line of Technora ropes and features indicator markings every meter to indicate distance and speed of deployment.
