About S+R Pulling Rope
Uniline™ Dielectric Pulling Rope
Uniline™ Dielectric is a parallel core cable of PET (polyester) filament. The Uniline Dielectric core is bonded together with a rubber based adhesive, double wrapped with a rubber tape, over-braided with a tough polyester sleeve and entirely saturated with another rubber solution. The cable is then cured in an oven, causing the rubber to advance to a solid layer with very tough mechanical properties. The red rubber layer not only acts as a moisture barrier, but is a wear indicator as well. When the red appears it’s time to replace the Uniline cable. This cable carries a 4:1 work load rating for overhead work and a 3:1 rating for under ground. Uniline is the toughest conventional stringing line you can buy and minimizes the elasticity and stretchiness seen in polyester ropes. Ropes removed from machines having seen 20 years of service regularly test at 75% of the original strength and above.
Uniline can be spliced both in eyes and as a running splice, delivering the full strength as cataloged. Alternately, Uniline can be terminated and/or end-for-end joined with Yale’s TechEye™ or TechJoin™ products.
Unitrex XS™ Max Wear Pulling Rope
Unitrex XS™ Max Wear is Uniline’s high tech cousin, which is a parallel cored rope of Honeywell’s Spectra, wrapped with a Neoprene tape and over braided with a tough jacket of high tenacity polyester. The result is a synthetic cable, somewhat stiffer than your usual rope, which is much like wire in its stretch characteristics. Unlike wire it is much lighter and easily handled. Due to its toughness we are comfortable assigning it a higher working load rating which is 25% of its breaking strength.
Unitrex XS Max Wear has high strength retention in service which is supported by field studies and our long standing track record with Uniline polyester. Unitrex’s tough rubber layer protects its high modulus Spectra core and the outer jacket is saturated with Urethane making it the toughest UHMPE rope you can buy.
Sarlex™ Pulling Rope
12-strand single-braid polyester fiber with Maxijacket™ urethane coating constructed of specially lubricated 1W81 high tenacity polyester. Sarlex’s two end per carrier structure creates a larger void in the middle of rope which makes it easier to splice, and makes used rope splicing much easier to perform. Sarlex™ is always coated with Yale’s Maxijacket™ urethane coatings which reduces the new ropes tendency to snag, greatly enhances abrasion resistance and is a great way to color code ropes for application or load rating.
SP-12™ Specter Fusion™ Pulling Rope
A Sherman & Reilly Exclusive, Specter Fusion rope is 12-strand blended composite strand structure of Polyester and UHMWPE fiber with High Performance™ (HP) coating. Polyester coating adds strength, longevity, and stability to synthetic rope. Composite strands of polyester are plied over fiber with a single end per carrier. Urethane coating applied for abrasion resistance. Results are longer lengths due to smaller size and higher strength. Diameter sizes range from 3/8 in. to 7/8 in. and available in a variety of colors.
Maxibraid™ Pulling Rope
12 strand single-braid of UHMWPE fiber with High Performance™ (HP) coating. UHMPE fiber has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any synthetic or natural fiber, and it floats. The integral Maxijacket HP coating firms the construction, increases wear life, and helps keep contaminants out of the rope. Maxi-braid also has extremely low stretch, and is laid firmer than Ultrex, sacrificing some tensile strength for longevity in tough field conditions. In many instances we have found this firmer lay retains higher percentages of original breaking strength after use in the field for extended periods.
