Greenline Static Rope (9mm)
Years of use and abuse in such caves as Huautla, Cheve, and J2 have shown that polyester Greenline can stand up to the toughest of endeavors.
Product: Caving Rope
Material: 100% virgin polyester fiber
Elongation Rating: Static
|Minimum Breaking Strength*|
*Rope and cord sold by the foot.
**Rated breaking strength is the optimum strength, achieved under laboratory conditions, in accordance with prescribed test procedures, on new rope, pulling at a slow steady rate in a straight line. Real life applications normally involve many other types of forces and factors which will cause the rope to fail at much reduced loads. Accordingly, the safe working load of any rope is much lower than its nominal strength. In life threatening and similar critical conditions, the safe working load should not exceed 1/15 of the rated breaking strength. In non-life threatening applications, a safe working load of 1/5 of the rated strength may be acceptable.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
What % elongation is this stuff? I have bought the 9mm and 10mm from you in the past and LOVE this rope, but I can't find elongation data on it anywhere.
Hey Eric! Excellant question. The elongation of the 9mm caving rope is 1% at 10% of its breaking strength. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Thanks for your support!
