Just before year 2000, a team of young engineers and entrepreneurs start the design and development of ropes with special characteristics.
Based on experiences and demands extracted from the field, Korda’s opened a new line of research aiming to the reduction of accidents and incidents. Among other items, we focused in new production processes, usage of specific materials and application of new treatments, until we succeeded to get ropes with the following characteristics:
- Semi-static ropes finished in the factory, ensuring a maximum durability and the maintenance of their technical characteristics during the longest possible time.
- Semi-static ropes pre-shrunk in the factory, which reduces for the user the loss of metres during the rope useful life, and avoids the need of soaking the rope before the first use.
- Union of core and sheath to avoid the slippage of the sheath in case of damage. This means a really big step in improving safety for the user.
