By Construction


  • 3-Strand Extra-Lene®
    A composite rope poly-dac rope with a polyester cover over a polypropylene core.  Extra-lene combines the superior abrasion resistance of polyeter with the economy of polypropylene. White with one orange tracer in diameters up to 3/4″.  Tow orange tracers in diameters above 3/4″
  • 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 Starline®
    Starline® is a light and easy handling rope, but has strength and elongation characteristics approaching that of pure polyester. One single blue tracer in a single strand.
  • 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
    8-Braid rope is inherently torque-balanced across the entire load range.  The engineered braid angles in plaited rope result in tensile strengths reaching 20% above 3-strand contructions while delivering significantly more energy absorption. Orion/Canada Cordage produces high quality 100% nylon ropes for industrial use.  Diameters for Plaited rope start at 1 1/2″ and utilize plied yarns […]

  • 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.
  • Conduit Tape
    Manufactured from bonded parallel polyester fibers. This product is produced for use as a measuring tape and light weight pull cord. Each reel is printed in 1 foot increments for accurate measuring of conduit runs.
  • Cotton
    Natural fibre, typically white in color Eco friendly – biodegradable Soft fibre making it nice to handle with low stretch Holds knot well • Good UV resistance and performance in intense heat Susceptible to rot/mildew and chemical degradation Dry store only USES: butcher twine, Tying and bundling, mason lines, sash cords, blind cords, pet leads, […]
  • Cotton 3 Strand Twist
    Twisted cotton/sythetic blended rope offering easy handling. Soft and holds knots well. A good general purpose rope.
  • Cotton Sash Cord
    Sash cord is manufactured from a cotton/synthetic blend of fibers. Stays round under load.
  • Double Braid Nylon
    Double braid rope is manufactured with a tightly formed jacket, braided over a loosely formed semi-parallel core. High strength is attained through the straighter filament alignment in the core of the rope. The braided cover protects the core with an abrasion resistant barrier. Nylon double braid has the highest strength to elongation ratio of any […]
  • 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.
  • Easy Haul Potwarp
    An economy sinking potwarp. Made with alternating black polypropylene and white polyester yarns within each of the three strands.
  • EsterPlex
    Produced from high tenacity polyester offering high strength and low stretch. This construction gives a very high mechanical efficiency. Can be easily spliced. Designed for T & D stringing lines and hand lines.
  • Jute
    Natural fibre, typically golden in color Dyed green for use in gardening Eco friendly – biodegradable Short shiny fibre does not have much strength Holds knot well • Mainly used as a tying twine Excellent for use in gardening, as forms excellent organic substance in soil after decay Dry store only USES: gardening twine, recycling, […]
  • Knot Tite®
    KNOT TITE® 3-strand twisted film polypropylene rope is the perfect general purpose rope.
