OTS Protective jacket™: Patent no: 314459

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™

  • Made with HMPE or polyester fiber.
  • The OTS Protective Jacket™ comes out as a clear winner in comparative testing of abrasion and cut resistance.
  • Excellent protection against wear and tear.
  • Patented technology

 

 

 

Advantages

  • Increases service life.
  • Can be braided onto entire rope or exposed areas.
  • Prevents rope from twisting.
  • Protects rope from external abrasion.
  • Reduced size of mooring line.
  • Reflective material can be woven into jacket band for better visibility.
  • Jacket band can be delivered in any colour.
