Wire Replacement & Vehicle Recovery Strops

Donaghys have developed the ultimate in high strength Fibre Rope Technology in our Ocean12 and Winchline product range.  Dyneema SK75 (& SK90) and UHMwPE are the world's strongest fibres with the ultimate strength to weight ratio for high performance and safety applications.

These high strength soft fibre ropes have a greater strength to weight ratio than steel wire alternatives and almost zero recoil effect if a break should occur. As a steel wire replacement, these ropes are lighter, safer and stronger than steel in many applications. It's very light density allows the rope to float and it is exceptionally light for handling compared to wire alternatives. The strength of the Ocean12 range means that it is ideal for use in both high performance racing and industrial applications where safety is key. 

Our new Mongoose Heavy Duty Tow Strops have been designed with safety in mind. Lightweight and flexible, these vehicle recovery strops reduce the risk of back and hand injuries on your work site.

Donaghys Superbraid is a high performance yacht braid developed through exhaustive testing on super yachts, Jules Verne, The Race, Whitbread, Volvo Ocean Race, America’s Cup, IOR, IMS, IMR and Olympic yachts.  This development programme has seen subtle but significant changes to Superbraid as fibre technology and manufacturing techniques improve. Superbraid’s versatility and advantages over traditional wire rope have seen an increase in its use across a broad range of applications.

  • Light weight UHMwPE core with HT Polyester cover provides high strength with minimal stretch
  • Treated with Donaghys Bindacoat on core to prevent core/cover slippage
  • Withstands shock loadings and accepts a tighter radius and knots better than Aramids
  • Suitable for all running rigging applications
