A solid frame is required to maintain the integrity of the net cage arrangement.
There is no room for error, and that is why we recommend the high quality Dextron® ropes with high strength, stiffness and low elongation.
The Dextron Aqua rope is especially designed for applications within the fishing -and aquaculture industry. The rope construction combined with the Dyneema® SK62 fiber and special coating to withstand flushing makes this a especially good product for aquaculture applications.

The patented chafe gear - OTS Protective jacket™ - offers excellent protection against external abrasion and increases rope lifetime with up to five times. The "no-rupture" construction combined with the worlds most abrasion resistant synthetic fibers, makes this the best cut -and abrasion resistant cover for your ropes. The jacket is mechanically braided onto the rope for a firm and solid finish.
OTS Protective jacket™ is braided in the following combinations:
- Soft eyes
- Soft eyes and required length (for instance over the splices)
- Exposed area on the rope
- Entire rope length
OTS Protective Jacket™
OTS Chafe Gear™ has been used by operators in the marine and oil & gas industry for over a decade, and lately it has also become more common in the fishing industry. The durable construction with its high abrasion resistance is demonstrated daily.
There are two types of OTS Chafe Gear™; a sleeve without axial velcro which is used prior to and during splicing of the rope, and a sleeve with super strong velcro which enable assembling of the sleeve anywhere on the rope without re-splicing. The chafe gear is also fitted on chains and other hardware to protect sorroundings from chafing against the hardware.
- Ears for fastening of seizing rope
- Velcro locking straps in the ends and/or mid-sections of the sleeve
- Loocking hoops
