When speaking of constructions we refer to the possible methods of braiding a rope, both for its core and for its outer cover.

Thus, ropes are be made of braided fibers (crossed between them) or wired (arranged in parallel), and they can have a core or not. In addition, the number of strands or cords that form them determine their dimensions and toughness. At Folch Ropes we manufacture ropes with the following techniques:


Twisted ropes 3, 4, 6 strands:

The 3 or 4 strands rope is the most traditional and extended construction.
Manageable and very easy to splice.
Construction widely used in ports and for safety harnesses.



Braid 8 strands:

EThe 8 strands construction has an irregular section with very good grip, and flexibility.
It is anti-giratory and very easy to splice. 
Construction very used in the naval and military industry.



Single braid 12, 16 strands:

The 12 or 16 strands construction offers a more rounded and manageable finish than the 8 strands.
Very easy to splice. 
Construction used for mooring and pilot rope.



Double braid:

The double braided construction combines a 12 or 16 rope as a core with a cover that completes the final resistance.
The cover can be manufactured in 16, 24, 32 or 48 strands.
