- A traditional craft -
Many yachts have oversized lines within their rigging, which are expensive and unnecessary. Professional sailors and regatta participants are well aware of the advantages of spliced lines and use them to cut down on weight and save money.
A line that has been spliced can easily hold double the load than one which has simply been tied in a knot. However, an incorrect splice or knot can reduce the tensile strength of a rope by up to 75%!
Another advantage of spliced lines is their movement through blocks and rollers, with hardly any chafing or rubbing.
Together with the splicing company Ropetec, who are specialists in this craft with decades of experience, we offer you our personalised service:
- Spliced eye
- Long splice
- Short splice
- Splice for continuous rope
- End-to-end splice
- Wire to rope splice
The strength of a splice is based on friction and the phenomenon of self-locking and can only be completely maintained if a splice is done by a professional.
