Hand Lines


  • 3-Strand Industrial Nylon
    Orion produces high quality 100% nylon ropes for industrial use. All sizes above 5/16″ diameter utilize plied yarns manufactured in a four stage process. Orion uses specific grade raw material sourced from well known manufacturers. Nylon filament is steam heat set prior to twisting to reduce rope shrinkage in the field. Nylon has the highest stretch, strength, and shock absorbency of any synthetic rope.
  • 3-Strand Superior Nylon
    Superior Nylon is made from 100% high tenacity multifilament nylon fiber. The rope is manufactured at full weight with a medium firm lay, resulting in true nylon performance. Orion Superior Nylon is heat-set with steam in the filament stage. This process leads to reduced hardening in use resulting in a rope with consistent firmness workable throughout its service life. Orion’s proprietary marine finish is applied to each nylon filament to reduce internal yarn abrasion and water absorption. This added step gives the rope extended service life in an outdoor marine environment.
  • 3-Strand Superpro®
    Orion’s Sima extrusion process blends polypropylene and high modulus polyethylene resins to produce the co-polymer fiber used in making SuperPro® ropes. SuperPro® is 35% stronger and has many times the abrasion resistance of conventional polypropylene products, with low-elongation characteristics equivalent to pure polyester. Orion’s testing shows that SuperPro® significantly outperforms other “blended olefin” fibers that are extruded using processes other than Sima. SuperPro® co-polymer rope, available exclusively from Orion Ropeworks, offers the best performance-price value.
  • 8-Braid Industrial Nylon
    Orion produces high quality 100% nylon ropes for industrial use. All sizes above 5/16″ diameter utilize plied yarns manufactured in a four stage process.

  • California Truck Rope
    A 100% monofilament polypropylene twisted rope. Filament for this rope is extruded at Orion from virgin poly resins. Good UV resistance. Black with one orange tracer in each strand.
  • Durastat
    Polyester double braid has slightly higher strength as compared to nylon, but there the similarity ends. Opposite to nylon, polyester has the lowest stretch of any conventional synthetic fiber. With low stretch, double braid polyester is ideal for controlled lifting and pulling applications such as use with winches, capstans, chives, block and tackle. Other benefits of double braid polyester include, limited creep, and high abrasion resistance.

Orion uses specific grade raw material sourced from well known manufacturers. Nylon filament is steam heat set prior to twisting to reduce rope shrinkage in the field. Nylon has the highest stretch, strength, and shock absorbency of any synthetic rope.
  • Polyester
    Polyester – A high density multifilament rope incorporating high tenacity white filament in a four stage, plied yarn construction. Among conventional synthetic ropes, polyester has the lowest stretch, best abrasion resistance, and good dielectric properties. Standard color is white.
  • PolyPlex
    Constructed of high tenacity polyester wrapped polyolefin yarns. Produces a firm line with good strength to weight ratio. Does not rotate under load. Easily spliced, stays flexible, good handling properties and does not kink or hockle. Designed for use as T & D Stringing lines and hand lines.
  • PolyPlus®
    Poly Plus™ – With its distinctive two red tracers Poly Plus™ is the most well known combination rope on the market. A firm lay poly-dac with high tenacity polyester wrapped over a co-polymer core providing good abrasion resistance and strength.
  • Premium Polypropylene
    Polypropylene is the lightest and most economical synthetic rope, with approximately twice the tensile strength of manila. Polypropylene rope will not rot or mildew, is resistant to most chemicals and acids, floats in salt and fresh water, and can be stored wet.
  • Prodac®
    ProDac® – A value composite rope with an abrasion resistant polyester cover over a polypropylene core.
  • Superior Nylon
    Superior Nylon is made from 100% high tenacity multifilament nylon fiber. The rope is manufactured at full weight with a medium firm lay, resulting in true nylon performance.
