First time Seawork exhibitor, Island Ropes is launching a new HMPE rope, Ox Fibre. It's a new approach to HMPE rope and can be used for many applications such as winching, lifting, mooring and towing.

For years Dyneema® has provided the answer for many companies and, although its quality cannot be faulted, alternative brands of HMPE fibre are now just as impressive in terms of performance. The team at Island Ropes believe that Ox Fibre can provide a cost saving potential of nearly 50% for a product of the same break load, ideal for the customer who wants high quality but needs to control costs. The company offer Ox Fibre in five different grades.

Although Ox Fibre is a favourite at Island Ropes, Dyneema® is fully stocked with Dyneema® SK75, SK78 and SK99 all available. The team at Island Ropes understand that, for some clients, the name holds significant value when sourcing high strength ropes for industrial actions.

Island Ropes works with leading EU rope manufacturers and maintains higher than normal stock levels, offering eight different types of break load. With a rigging department in-house reels are easily tailored to the customer’s needs.

Managing director Steve Hayman says; “we realised that the customer was limited to one product when buying from a manufacturer. We differ because we can offer a selection of rope to meet their needs, based on buying criteria such as diameter, break load, price and delivery, rather than being restricted to a singular product.”

Although Island Ropes is a relatively new company its employees offer over 50 years’ experience in the industry and strong knowledge of both products and the market. The team, including in-house splicing and rigging experts, focus on service, quality and speed, working as partners with customers and building strong, long lasting relationships.
