Prusik Line

Donaghys has worked closely alongside certified Arborists and champion tree climbers to develop a range of arbour ropes you can hang your life on.  The range has been certified to both Australian and International standards, developed off US benchmarks. 

Note that in New Zealand, only Armor-Prus and Spectra prusik lines meet the Arboriculture Approved Code of Practice.  All Donaghys climbing and safety lines also meet this standard.

Feedback from the field :

I like the Donaghys Arborist ropes. They last longer, the outer sheath is harder wearing, it's designed tougher and has less milking

I trust my life with Donaghys ropes and the lives of my emergency response teams

I have been using Spectra for a few years now as it has good diameter range, strength and splicability.  With the new development of the Armor-Prus range I can see this as being a plus for the safety and piece of mind of climbers, as the prusik is a vital part of their system. Having a Technora blend outer and Kevlar blend inner will meet the criteria of the working arborist with durability and strength and also on the competition climber with rapid descents.  And best of all is having a local company manufacturing this product.
