Improper use of your GORILLA rope CAN BE DANGEROUS.

It is the user’s responsibility to use the rope in an appropriate manner.

·         DO NOT overload the rope.

·         Avoid shock loading rope whenever possible.

·         Be sure to use the correct size rope for the job.

·         Avoid any area around a liner length of loaded rope.

·         Keep rope away from all chemicals to prolong safe working life.

·         Do not use rope in applications beyond the heat rating of the rope.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON ROPE USE:

 

It is the user's responsibility to completely understand the safe use and operation of the rope being put into service for any specific or general task. The user needs to be aware of all environmental, load and any other variable factors that affect the safe use of rope. Failure to do so can cause severe personal injury and/or death as well as property and/or other environmental damage. The user of this rope assumes all such risks.

A rope's potential load capacity can vary greatly depending on its overall condition, how it's currently being used, and its exposure to the elements and other factors known to affect rope behavior. Because of

this, and the possible risks to life and property involved, it is not realistic to make specific recommendations as to the exact loads any given rope can handle.

In addition, any safety training or skill training required for the safe use of rope in any capacity is the sole responsibility of the user of any rope.

Climbing ropes must be anchored to a smooth, round surface.  Failure to do so may result in a frayed/torn rope that can be extremely dangerous to the user.  If you are anchoring the rope to a non-round surface, we recommend the use of a sheath or some other form of rope protector.

 

ROPE STRENGTHS:

All rope has a rating referred to as a “tensile strength” or “average break strength” This number is the amount of weight that the rope should be able to hold in ideal conditions. This would be new rope, with no knots or plices, at room temperature. These break strength numbers are based on actual destructive break testing by the manufacturer or a certified third party testing facility over many cycles, and the average break strength is recorded and applied to the product.

Rope wear, knots, extreme hot or cold temperatures, chemicals, how the load is applied and many other factors can result in a break strength lower than the stated tensile strength.

Just because a rope has a stated or advertised break strength doesn’t mean it will safely hold something that weighs that amount!!! Refer to the safe WORKING LOAD of each specific rope for more information.

WORKING LOADS:

As a broad generalization, most working loads are anywhere from 1/10 to 1/4 of the average break strength of the rope. Any rope used in life support or personal fall protection applications must use the 1/10 ratio.

When in doubt, use a working load factor that affords a greater margin of safety, or move up to a larger diameter rope.

STORAGE OF ROPE:

All natural fiber ropes must be stored in a clean dry place to maximize their safe working life. Synthetic ropes should also be stored long term in a cool, dry place. 3 strand ropes should be coiled or spooled up and braided products can be flaked or coiled in a bag or box if needed.
