Nylon Double Braid has the most elastic double braid construction available. It has excellent energy absorption properties and minimal strength loss due to UV exposure.
It conforms to military specification Mil-R-24050 B&C and with twice as much stretch as polyester, Nylon Double Braid is great for docking and mooring lines because of its ability to absorb energy. No blanket Safe Working Load (SWL) recommendations can be made for any line because SWLs must be calculated based on application, conditions of use and potential danger to personnel among other considerations. It is recommended that the end user establish working loads and safety factors based on best practices established by the end users industry; by professional judgement and personal experience; and after thorough assessment of all risks. The SWL is a guideline for the use of a rope in good condition for non-critical applications and should be reduced where life, limb or valuable property is involved or in cases of exceptional service such as shock loading, sustained loading, severe vibration, etc. The Cordage Institute specifies that the SWL of a rope shall be determined by dividing the Minimum Tensile Strength of the rope by a safety factor.
The safety factor ranges from 5 to 12 for non-critical uses and is typically set at 15 for life lines.
