    8mm Escape Rope Technora®

    Solid Technora sheath Personal Escape Rope for those who prefer solid aramid sheath PERs. Technora has two distinct advantages over traditional aramid fibers: it has a higher decomposition temperature (934 degrees F) and it has better flex fatigue resistance so there is less loss of strength over time.  High strength, Low elongation. This rope has a nylon core to provide the necessary rope cross section to prevent flattening under loads thus making for a more controlled descent.

    @ 300 lbf. = 4.4%
    @600 lbf. = 6.4%
    @1000 lbf. = 8.3%.

    Diameter:    8mm
    Grams Per Meter:    50
    Tensile Strength:    24.7 kN (5,552 lbf.)

    Escape-Tech® 100% Technora® Fire Escape Rope

    New from Bluewater is a 100% Technora version of our innovative 7.5 Hybrid design PER. Outrageously HIGH 6349 lbf. tensile strength sets this rope apart from any other Fire Escape Rope. BlueWater’s superior design team has created yet another rope with an exceptional diameter to strength ratio.  Available with factory sewn loop ends sewn with custom twisted Technora thread. This sewn termination version is also UL CLASSIFIED to meet the pertinent standard for a “manufactured assembly”.

    UL Classified to meet NFPA 1983/ 2017 edition for Fire Escape Ropes.

    7.5mm Hybrid Escape Rope

    This design, exclusively from BlueWater, utilizes a sheath construction ratio of 50% Technora and 50% polyester. 100% Nylon core strands. The Technora provides the necessary fire resistant properties while the polyester provides high visibility. Technora has the highest heat resistance of any aramid available today. Better fiber flex fatigue resistance makes it the ideal choice over aramids of the past. The hybrid sheath operates in a very controllable and smooth manner in descent devices designed for small (sub 9.4 mm diameter) ropes.
