Gleistein Ropes launches Texteel® ? the new force in quality HMPE textile ropes

Bridging the gap between high performance and cost effectiveness

Leading rope manufacture Gleistein Ropes announces the launch of its new Texteel® series. With Texteel®, Gleistein introduces a HMPE fibre type for cost-conscious customers, combining the strength and elongation characteristics of steel wire rope with the low weight and exceptional handling attributes of textile fibre ropes. The alternative HMPE fibre used for the manufacture of Texteel® was carefully selected following extensive, rigorous tests at the Gleistein Ropes rope testing laboratory to ensure the company’s strict quality standards are completely and reliably maintained throughout the rope’s entire service life. Texteel® is available in two construction types as TexteelOne® and TexteelTwin®. This new series will be presented at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) running 6-9 May, 2019, at NRG Park in Houston, USA. The Gleistein stand will be located in the German Pavilion, Booth 3625-11.

Gleistein Ropes presents a new force for quality HMPE rope solutions. Delivering full HMPE power at minimal cost and in certified Gleistein quality, Texteel® sets a benchmark for reliable performance and value for money. Jan Paul, Head of Research and Development at Gleistein Ropes: “Texteel® represents many years of extensive market observation as well as research and development. Our HMPE fibre delivers the optimal balance of price and performance, thereby allowing a wider range of customers to benefit from the advantages of such textile fibre ropes that boast the power of steel wire ropes at just a fraction of the weight – thereby making them significantly easier and safer to handle.”

The Texteel® series debuts with two main types. TexteelOne® features the extensively proven 12-braid MegaOne construction type made of pure Texteel® with a Geothane coating to ensure long service life and high flexibility. Meanwhile, TexteelTwin® enters the market with a choice of four different protective covers: TexteelTwin® SSC-Cover, TexteelTwin® Tex-Cover, TexteelTwin® Poylester-Cover and TexteelTwin® Plus-Cover. Each TexteelTwin® rope is constructed with a pure Texteel® core and is enveloped in a cover made of different materials to perfectly suit diverse requirements and usage scenarios.

Full details and technical specifications of the five new rope types can be found in the brand-new Gleistein Ropes Texteel® brochure.

The Texteel® series ropes are available now and can be seen at the 50th anniversary edition of the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston, running 6-9 May, 2019. Visitors are invited to drop by at the Gleistein stand located in the German Pavilion, Booth 3625-11.
